FAQ
Hello,

I'm trying to build a small program that outputs info to a small SPI tft
display connected to a RPI device, but I can't find much info about that or
where to start.
I won't need any touch capability on that display for now, all I'd like
would be to output some text and images.

I'm using this display http://www.adafruit.com/products/2441 But I'll be
able to use others if needed.

The preferred way would be doing this using Go + QML but not strict?

Ideas and different approaches are welcome.

best regards,
Alex

    I don't know about the SPI connection, but perhaps
    https://github.com/ajstarks/openvg will work.
    It includes Go bindings for the OpenVG API.

    Thank you, it looks like QT will be a headache.
    Will do some research about OpenVG API but it doesn't look that good. I'd
    much prefer OpenGL or QT/QML as they would allow better looking interfaces
    and probably faster to render at the tft.

    go qml is just a wrapper to qml...

    The only reason I'd prefer qml is just because in a near future I might be
    interested in using the touch sense function of the tft. Also, qml seems to
    be a lot easier to use and most likely will allow others to customize the
    GUI in a easy way.
