Learn how to use LVGL with Ardunio: https://docs.lvgl.io/latest/en/html/get-started/arduino.html
LVGL Arduino library
This library allows to use LVGL (v7.0.x) as an Arduino library. Library can be installed via Arduino IDE Library Manager or as an .ZIP library.
There is simple example which uses https://github.com/Bodmer/TFT_eSPI library as an TFT driver to simplify testing. To get all this to work you have to setup TFT_eSPI to work with your TFT display type via editing the
User_Setup.h file in TFT_eSPI library folder, or by selecting your own configurtion in the
User_Setup_Select.h file in TFT_eSPI library folder.
LittlevGL library has its own configuration file in
lv_conf.h file, which is locatd in LittlevGL library folder. Please get in mind to check that the corresponding resolutions in LVGL configuration match the ones in TFT_eSPI and with the physical resolution of your display.
Example result should look like this:
- My own ESP32 board, module ESP32 Wroom
- PC OS: Linux, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- IDE: Arduino IDE 1.8.12
- ESP32 Core: 1.0.4
In case of trouble there are debug informations inside LVGL. In the
ESP32_TFT_eSPI example there is
my_print method, which allow to send this debug informations to the serial interface. To enable this feature you have to edit
lv_conf.h file and enable logging in section
/*Log settings*/ #define LV_USE_LOG 1 /*Enable/disable the log module*/ #if LV_USE_LOG /* How important log should be added: * LV_LOG_LEVEL_TRACE A lot of logs to give detailed information * LV_LOG_LEVEL_INFO Log important events * LV_LOG_LEVEL_WARN Log if something unwanted happened but didn't cause a problem * LV_LOG_LEVEL_ERROR Only critical issue, when the system may fail * LV_LOG_LEVEL_NONE Do not log anything */ # define LV_LOG_LEVEL LV_LOG_LEVEL_WARN
After enabling log module and setting LV_LOG_LEVEL accordingly the output log is sent to the
Serial port @ 115200 Bd.
