SparkFun HyperDisplay Arduino Library

This is an abstract display library that makes it easy to get new displays up and running quickly with a full set of drawing and printing functions with multi-window support. This library is relatively flexible allowing for the user to use a completely custom color definition and override default implementations for printing. All that is needed to make a display work is to provide the interface to draw one pixel to the display, and instruct the library how to handle your custom color type. Increased efficiency can be obtained by overriding additional drawing functions.

Quick-start guide

HyperDisplay is an abstract top layer library. That means that in order to use it you must either:

    1. Use a provided extension (found below)
    1. Derive your own class from HD (use the 'Example1_simpleBareNecessities' example as a guide)

Level Two Extensions

Level two libraries support display driver IC's without customization for any particular display hardware.

Level Three Extensions

Level three libraries suport particular display models - that is to say a combination of a driver IC with actual display hardware with a certain number of pixels and a fixed communication mode.
