Spark library for wide array of TFT display controllers

Hello guys,

I was looking for a library for this 3.5” TFT display that uses a ILI9481 controller. I hoped that such library would work with @peekay123’s awesome mfGFX multi-font library, but I wasn’t that lucky.

What I found though, was an Open Source Arduino TFT graphics library called “Pixels” from Pixelmeister The library supports hardware and software SPI, 8 and 16 bit parallel interface.

This library supports a wide array of screen controllers that would be awesome to have in the Spark ecosystem. Some of them are: HX8340, HX8352, ILI9163, ILI9325, ILI9341, ILI9481, S6D0164, S6D1121, SSD1289, and ST7735.

Before I try to port it, has anybody played with it before?


@sazp96, this is the first I hear of this library and it looks very interesting! The only caveat is that you need to pay for the Pixelmeister software if you want to use it for a commercial product.

That is a good catch @peekay123, thanks!

I might instead try to migrate the ILI9481 library in a way that works with mgGFX. Will keep you posted.
