First, it's a TI-84+CSE, not TI-SEC84+ ;)
  • There's the built-in language that you can write programs with via the PRGM menu, often called BASIC or TI-BASIC
  • BASIC programs that don't do graphics will work. BASIC programs that do graphics won't, and any native code (such as DoorsCS and MirageOS) will crash. (Actually, 83/4+(SE) apps won't send)
  • For shells there's the 84+CSE successor to DoorsCS, DoorsCSE, which you can find at http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/456/45670.html
  • I don't actually have one, so I won't give a proper rating, but I'll note that the color display makes the 84+CSE quite noticeably slower, graphically speaking
Edit: Hm, I can't get BBCode ordered lists. Oh well.

1: SourceCoder, TokenIDE or the on-calc editor. For Z80 ASM coders I think the usual tools will work but I don't remember if there's a DCSE SDK.

2: No. Only a very small amount of math programs made in BASIC might run, as well as certain homescreen games. Among my games, I think that only Mana Force 1 runs properly on that calc. There are now some cool games for that calc, tho, like Block Dude, Pacman, Frogger, Snake, Dino Puzzle and some crude Engrish puzzle-adventure game.

3: ASM and apps natively supported *stabs TI for not doing the same on the Nspire*. Doors CSE is the only shell.

4: 4.5 stars. I love it, but typing is slow and the hardware is kinda limited for such large screen, so it's more for people who like old school platforms and pushing them to their limits.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
