How to add custom Blockly to Node Red

Hello everyone,
I am a student working on a project with Node-RED and Blockly. I have already customized Blockly with extra Blocks and Categories that I need. Also I have changed the Layout and Design of it.

My goal is to connect this custom Blockly to Node-RED. ( I know there is a Blockly Node-RED out there which I tried out but I would like to add my own instead).

Does anyone have any tips on how to do that?
Thanks in advance

Hi @rth,
If I may curious, what is the reason that you don't want to extend the existing blockly node, and start a new one? Because if you have "general" functionality that may help the users of the existing blockly node, then it would be a pity not to see a pull request arriving...

Hey Bart, I got the impression from the op that he was running blocky external and wanted a way of communicating between blocky and node-red (I might be wrong).

Hey @Steve-Mcl ,
From this I had concluded that it was about node-red-contrib-blockly. But indeed I might have misinterpreted the question...

Hello @BartButenaers ,
We are working on a little project and we have some blocks which are very specific to our needs. Also we changed a lot in the design of Blockly and that's why I would like to add my Blockly to Node-RED as it is better for my needs. I know one can create functions in node-red-contrib-blockly, but I was wandering if I can just add my whole custom Blockly in node-red. If someone has any ideas it would be nice :smiley:

Just out of curiosity, can you post a link to your Blocky version so we can see how much different it is?

In the end every Blockly can be translated into JavaScript and Javascript can be executed by the function node of Node-Red. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

If it was that simple, we wouldn't need @BartButenaers :slight_smile:
