All generators

var Blockly = require('node-blockly/browser');

Example

Node.js

var Blockly = require('node-blockly');

var xmlText = `<xml xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
        <block type="variables_set">
            <field name="VAR">blockly</field>
            <value name="VALUE">
                <block type="text">
                    <field name="TEXT">Hello Node.js!</field>
                </block>
            </value>
        </block>
    </xml>`;

try {
    var xml = Blockly.Xml.textToDom(xmlText);
}
catch (e) {
    console.log(e);
    return
}

var workspace = new Blockly.Workspace();
Blockly.Xml.domToWorkspace(xml, workspace);
var code = Blockly.JavaScript.workspaceToCode(workspace);

console.log(code)  

Compiled result

var blockly; 

blockly = 'Hello Node.js!';

Browser

Live demo (source)

Internationalization

import Blockly from 'node-blockly/browser';
import De from 'node-blockly/lib/i18n/de';
Blockly.setLocale(De)

Dynamic imports also works but Blockly doesn't re-render workspace. You must re-render it manually after locale loaded
