  • GitHub repo lvgl

    Powerful and easy-to-use embedded GUI library with many widgets, advanced visual effects (opacity, antialiasing, animations) and low memory requirements (16K RAM, 64K Flash).

  • GitHub repo TFT_eSPI

    Arduino and PlatformIO IDE compatible TFT library optimised for the Raspberry Pi Pico (RP2040), STM32, ESP8266 and ESP32 that supports different driver chips

    A fantastic work, one of the few true graphic libraries that are not the usual pset and drawcircle but true gui management in plain C!

    regarding esp32 porting, i have seen that it is possible to use other graphics libraries as 'low level drivers' (e.g. bodmer's classic TFT_eSPI[0]) but i still don't understand the pros and cons of this approach; hypothetically, if i used faster LovyanGFX[1], would LVGL gain in responsiveness?

    if so, how to do this?

  • GitHub repo LovyanGFX

    SPI LCD graphics library for ESP32 (ESP-IDF/ArduinoESP32) / ESP8266 (ArduinoESP8266) / SAMD51(Seeed ArduinoSAMD51)

  • GitHub repo lvgl-sdl

    A crossplatform SDL wrapper for the Light and Versatile Graphics Library

  • GitHub repo lv_drivers

    TFT and touch pad drivers for LVGL embedded GUI library

    seems like LVGL has direct support for the frame buffer:

    other devices are supported too
