Grid extension

As I’ve mentioned in a few posts, I’ve created an extension that divides the screen into a grid layout. You can then use that grid to place sprites, and to restrict their movement to coordinates in the grid. It uses mechanics similar to those found in the built-in Memory game or in John Park’s Re-MakeCode Racing Game.

Extension URL (for importing into your own games): https://github.com/robo-technical-group/pxt-arcade-grid.git

See it in action here:

API documentation is available here: https://github.com/robo-technical-group/pxt-arcade-grid/blob/master/api.md

Let me know if you find any errors or have any comments. Have fun!

We need to start listing the extensions for arcade…

@peli maybe we should do a sticky thread for them?

We should start a gallery + /extensions page in the editor + add to default extensions dialog.

In the docs, you mention an approval process, but I’m guessing you haven’t created that workflow yet. Maybe flesh out that process and have approved extensions appear in the built-in gallery within the editors?
