Numworks uses MicroPython, as can be checked in the source code of the calculator's OS: https://github.com/numworks/epsilon Smile

Bernard Parisse's work for a Python-like syntax in giac was a great idea, quickly executed, and HP was fully right to integrate it into the Prime's OS... but I have a hard time considering it as more than a stopgap measure, especially now that Casio decided to integrate MicroPython to the fx-CG50 / Graph 90+E.
Although they have failed to do so yet, despite years of hints directly delivered to management, TI will eventually have to settle down on some Python implementation as well (well, I really hope so, but the reputation damage caused by not including Python is too high anyway, and will end up reflecting badly on sales at some point)... and as far as the 83PCE & 84+CE's weak hardware characteristics are concerned, MicroPython would be the only embedded implementation which makes sense. In 2010-2011, I worked a bit on porting
Therefore, if they haven't started doing it yet, HP should really think about integrating MicroPython, and an associated development environment (they already have a program editor and a debugger !), into the Prime, by the end of 2018, so that it's available for the 2019 exam seasons (in both hemispheres).
