RE: NumWorks open source calculator
The current version of microPython has only one editable buffer without helper and no commandline, moreover the built is minimal, there is no math module for example. It may change of course, but currently it's almost unusable. Actually, it appears that one month before release the calc was not programmable, the micropython module was added in extremis, there is a warning that it is a beta version, where I would call it a proof of concept...
There is no connection between apps on this calculator, it means that if you define a Python function f, you can not run it in the calculation app, this is also true for a function defined in the function app, you can not call it from the calculation app! It also lacks a solver application, a spreadsheet, geometry, helper to enter a matrix, lists, vectors, etc.
From github, it appears there is 1 fulltime developper +1 partial time (the startup manager), therefore it will take time to match the expectations of a calculator at that price. The flash ROM is only 1M, where 526K are already used, it may well be filled before...
I would recommend upgrading the flash to 8M, at least.
