I want to port LVGL for use in VEXcode Text to display pictures and make a nice auton selector. Before you ask, yes, I could just use PROS, but my IT situation makes this not an option, and I also don’t have the time to learn okapi.
if I need to clarify anything don’t hesitate to message me.
I checked the PROS wiki , which basically said to untick a box to use LVGL. Then I realized you weren’t talking about the wiki, and my next question is, should I be checking the PROS program source or some LVGL example code made with PROS?
I was going to release this code a while back, but there are issues building this with the windows build of VEXcode due to some of the backend code being 32 bit and running into memory issues (due to the structure of the LVGL source files). However, it does build well on Mac.
alternate version using newer LVGL source
Have fun, but I will not be providing any support for this.
V5 development was started in 2015, perhaps some in 2014, I forget. VEXcode was a bit of.a skunkworks project, Raj and I wrote the first version of VEXcode text in about 6 months (mostly Raj). VEXcode blocks was a different team,
and for anyone who’s interested in the origins of the name LVGL, this is from the primary developer.
If anyone interested in the full story:
My full name is Kiss-Vámosi (family name) Gábor (first name). In Hungary, the order is the opposite.
“Kiss-Vámosi” is for short “Kiss-V.” And “Kiss” means “Little” in Hungarian. So Little + V = Littlev:
For fun, one of my friends told me “hey, littlev” when we started to learn English.
So that’s the mysterious story of the name
I didn’t know that , but I figure now that It can be done. I wanted to follow some tutorials for an auton selector without asking my team to change their entire codebase, but we all decided to just use separate programs instead. Thanks for the heads up.
Hi, and welcome to the forums! However, before posting, it is advisable to first the FAQs. Generally, if you have a question about an old thread (this ones last post was two years ago), you create a new topic. @DRow, would you mind closing this?
I’ll answer the question, then yes, probably time to close this old topic.
First, lvgl has moved on to version 8, there’s a VEXcode port of V8.3 here.
The demo project does show how to use the library, but in simple terms
copy the headers (build/include/* in the repo) into the project include folder
copy the library (build/libv5lvgl.a) somewhere sensible where you can link against it, usually I would place inside a “lib” folder in the root of the project.
modify vex/mkenv.mk to link the library
