Port of modified Adafruit library for ILI9341-based TFT displays.
Original lib: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_ILI9341
The library is extended with text rendering routines got from here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-TFT-display-and-font-library/?ALLSTEPS
Original hspi code: https://github.com/Perfer/esp8266_ili9341
The sample project is to be built with ESP8266 Unofficial Development Kit aka UDK. http://esp8266.ru/forum/threads/obsuzhdenie-unofficial-development-kit-for-espressif-esp8266.32/
The driver itself and needed dependencies are in /driver and /include/driver. The driver is written in C++ which is not well supported by ESP8266 toolchain and sdk, so some dirty hack is needed to properly contstruct C++ objects. The code for this is in user/routines.cpp.
In spite of the fact that according to the datasheet max ILI9341's clock speed is 10MHz mine robustly works at up to 40MHz so I added SPI speed prescaler macro at the beginning of hspi.c. Defining it to 1 means HSPI will be clocked at 40MHz, 4 means 10 MHz.
The sample code consists of two parts:
Rotating cube https://youtu.be/kEWThKicO0Q
What to demonstrate is controlled by macro UIDEMO defined at the beginning of user_main.cpp. If it's defined then the sample HVAC controller UI is shown, else, the rotating cube is rendered.
The code uses hardware HSPI with hardware controlled CS, so the wiring shall be as follows:
ILI9341 pin --> ESP8266 pin
MOSI --> GPIO13
CLK --> GPIO14
CS --> GPIO15
DC --> GPIO2
Reset to 3.3v
GND to ground
MISO may be left unconnected
