From Hack/Mine Wiki

The Spellscript IDE (i.e. Interactive Development Environment) is a code editor for Spellscript introduced in H/M version 0.6.4. It features syntax-highlighting, undo/redo functionality, and an increasing number of keyboard shortcuts to make script creation much easier than it would be in a normal text editor.

When an object in Minecraft is capable of being scripted via the Spellscript IDE, we refer to that object as a scriptable. As of this writing, scriptables include Spellscript blocks, console scripts, and schedulable scripts.
