I guess that's true. The site navigation is all in English as you say as well. However, of the French people we have had that joined, many of them say "Sorry for my bad English". I usually find this to be a false statement, as many of them speak decently well. I guess the overall population doesn't as much though. I'd still encourage people to join if they have basic English skills. We try to be accommodating and open, and programming itself is somewhat universal. Google translate has also improved quite a bit in recent years. French to English translation is usually pretty decent these days, though I'm unsure about the other way around.
C'mon guys, that's a non-problem really. IMO, they should just join in and start participating using simple sentences. I'm pretty sure the average french student can read English quite well nowadays (speaking might be another matter, though). Especially when they do some sort of programming studies. Yeah, a bit off-topic  .

Oh, you'd be (negatively) surprised...
And yeah, let alone speaking, that's for sure.

It is better (generally) after the baccalaureate, but there aren't really "programming studies" before, so it's all the same "high school english level", and a lot are just bad at it. But it's not really all the student's fault : the way languages are taught is just bad (too much theory, not enough actual practice) : simply look at other countries, people are as smart/dumb as in any other countries yet some are much better at learning/teaching them.

But anyway, we're going off-topic...

I think it is more because of the fact the only official language in France is French, while in Canada, both English and French are official languages (although Quebec doesn't recognize English as one) and most populated Quebec areas are close to USA border. In Quebec, you start learning English in school in 4th grade and beforehand there are english-speaking TV channels on which popular kid shows like Sesame's Street air.

But yeah, back on pyWrite now
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

The topic can still be changed

In the meantime I could implement some UI stuff and saving. I also removed the "Save&Run" menu in favor of a simple "Run" item. Only difference is, that it doesn't save.

Editing a file:

Selecting a location to save to:

File is attached. Shold run on all calc models, but not very usable on clickpad without cursor movement.Please report if you find it useful!
If anyone wants to help: http://github.com/Vogtinator/pyWrite
Todo-list:
-Syntax highligting
-Horizontal scrolling (partially implemented)
-Settings dialog (font and location of micropython)

Well, I made this post very active with only one off-topic sentence...

So let's get rid of any misunderstanding and stop talking about it.

I just wanted to specify that :
1) If I want my students to know something about their calculators I get them first to TI-Planet,
2) If they want a little more, I talk about Omnimaga too... but a bunch of my students are afraid about writing... even in french, not considering english writing as a possibility. Their abilities are maths, physics and a bit on computer science... that's it.

To get back on topic, I'm pretty impressed by this new release.
I just wanted to know if it is planned to :
1) use UTF8 encoding ?
2) let users choose the place for MicroPython run ?

They are afraid of writing?    I can't think of a single reason why. Everybody can be anonymous here, it's just the Internet.

Yes, if you can suggest an input method. Latin-1 or ISO-8859-15 would be easier though and it contains most of the needed characters.

Yes, third item of the Todo-list. Not a very high priority, though.

I guess ISO 8859 would already be enough, yeah. Covers 99.9% of the cases I suppose.

So, this time I posted the update on ti-planet and a cross-post lands here.

pyWrite 0.2:
• Some syntax highlighting
• Selections
• Bugfixes
• Settings
• Better scrolling (also horizontal)
Some screenshots:

Please report any bugs you can find!

Concerning inputting characters not accessible via the usual keys, I'll probably implement a sidebar that appears if you press Var.

I tried this last night, and I must say I'm impressed. It's really smooth and responsive, and the run-from-editor function is really useful. One very silly thing that could be improved (in my arrogant and honest opinion) is the mouse pointer; IMO it doesn't really fit in with the rest of the program.

But put that at the bottom of your todo list

I wrote it like a game, with a main game loop, so the screen is always redrawn completely. It will drain your battery even quicker than the OS, but that's the only issue.

What would you change? Behavior, appearance?

I think the mouse cursor is a little too large

The mouse behavior is good. But like Ivoah said, it's a little bit too large, and IMO it could just be a 2-color sprite instead of all this anti-aliased fancyness. Yes, I'm telling you that the cursor looks too good

Let me whip up a quick example of what I'd find a good cursor.

If it's a usable license, I'll use it

Actually I was meaning to design a cursor myself
