Micropython for UEFI Shell

Post by Lowell.Dennis » Sat Feb 02, 2019 2:39 am

I read a couple of articles online about Micropython being ported to the UEFI shell.
See (https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/ ... -framework,
and https://github.com/tianocore/tianocore. ... icroPython)
Unfortunately, I have not been successful in being able to build the binaries for this.
I have downloaded the UDK2 source in which the Micropython support is found.
However, I get build errors every time I try to build.
All I want to really do is evaluate Micropython in the UEFI shell environment.
Is there anyplace I can go to get the needed binaries for this (micropython.efi and whatever else it needs)?

Thanks,
Lowell Dennis

Good news. Previously, they ported CPython to it, and of course, MicroPython is a much better choice.
