At WTC 2016 we showed Warp connected to a 2.4″ LCD module and got some great feedback about it. The display is pretty compact and has a nice 320×240 resolution so it is a great display for IoT projects. Even though the interface is SPI, it’s plenty fast and should work great for user interfaces. This display module is now available over at the Revotics store.
There is a wiring diagram (check the product page link in the store) which shows how to connect this LCD module to Warp via the Interposer Development Board. The Linux kernel that ships with Warp already has support for this display so once it’s wired up, it’ll just work.
One great way to get a UI up for your device is using Python with Qt. Qt is a popular GUI library and Warp ships with Python and the PyQt5 module so you can get something on the display with just a few lines of Python. We’ll post more about this soon.
We also have some cool developments for displays going on so keep you eyes out for that post!
