A quick update to some changes we needed to make to our standalone Maker App for Unit 6 of CS Discoveries: if you & your students login using Google or Clever, the button for this step is now located at the top of the Maker App in the Navigation bar:
If you don’t see the button, make sure you are using the latest version of the Maker App (currently: 1.1.8). You can download the latest version of the app here.
This takes folks to their browser (such as Chrome or Internet Explorer) and has them log-in through Google in their browser. Once they log-in in on the browser, they are taken to a page that gives them a generated code. Meanwhile the Maker App has automatically directed them to a page where they can paste the code. They should copy the code from the browser to the Maker App and once they submit, they’ll be logged in in the Maker App.
Note: If you get an error saying “Already signed in” in your browser, please log out of Code Studio on your browser and try again. We’re working on a fix to make this easier in the future.
Why Did We Make This Change? Google has recently increased their security measures when using third-party apps (like ours!) to login with Google services. These steps allow us to continue using Google to login to the app, while also keeping your account information secure with Google’s new procedures.
