Texas Instruments TI-Nspire Scripting Support Page


TI-Nspire 3.0 adds powerful new functionality to the platform in the form of Lua scripting capabilities. Lua is a lightweight extensible scripting language, with a relatively simple C API that is not dissimilar to JavaScript in its implementation. Scripts written in Lua (even using a simple text editor) may be converted to TI-Nspire documents using the TI-Nspire Scripting Tool or by third-party tools.
