You simply drop it in. E.g. download this project

The trunk image is ready for experimenting, but not for use with students.
Tim Felgentreff built an image based on trunk that they actually used for
an online course at HPI in Potsdam:


That image contains quite a few hacks, including one that makes it use
German by default. You can download it here:


You could help by porting some stuff from that image to trunk. I imagine
having an "Etoys" entry in the "open" menu that would create a new morphic
project and set up the preferences suitable for Etoys. That would it make
way easier to experiment and fix stuff that is still broken.
