TI-Nspire SDK expected for release in 2012
« on: June 03, 2011, 05:11:56 pm »
On the Lua page from TI website that was mentionned yesterday, it mentions that a SDK is planned for 2012:

Quote
When will a SDK (software development kit) / authoring kit be available for Lua?

A. We have a conversion utility tool and documentation available today from this page. TI expects to have an SDK available in 2012. If you are interested in providing input for this kit please use the feedback link.

Let's hope it will be free or at least contain a not-to-limited free version. I guess it might help, when providing input to Texas Instruments, to suggest a free version. :P
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

2012 till a SDK is available :O. I wish we didn't have to wait that long but the only reason they released it I bet was to make themselves look better and because we hacked into it in 3.0.1. I bet it was very unplanned

Yeah I am certain it was not planned for a long while as they claim on the page. It was probably also to save their reputation.

I hope it won't be as buggy as the 83+ one, too. Several programs wouldn't even work in the emulator.

The 83+ SDK attempted to emulate the whole CPU (because asm could be used). This one only needs to be able to run an interpreted language - no CPU emulation required (because asm can't be used)... It should be much simpler to make, but TI will probably just screw up like they always do.

2012? That's a long time, is there a chance we can make our own earlier? I'm pretty sure that's possible :)

It's possible, if the right persons (I'm not one of them) spend enough time tackling that task :)

It all depends on what an "SDK" means.
And we already have official and unoffical emulators.

We have Lua>Tns Converters, Emulators. All we need is to package them together and *voilá* your SDK is finished.

IDE is not all that different from SDK its just lacking the documentation which we seem to have been doing pretty well with

And the vast majority of said API documentation had already been reverse-engineered before they released the documentation :)

Wow, so TI is admitting Lua is on their calculators and *gasp* they put up a tool for changing Lua into TNS! Yay I hope it works with the CX!

Why it can't work ? (Because actually, it works)
