MicroPython + LVGL Support!

by Lazar D

We’re pleased to let everybody know that the Omega2s Dash now supports creating interactive UIs using LVGL and MicroPython!

This is a great way to quickly prototype and build your GUI. Since MicroPython is an interpreted language, code changes and design iterations are very quick since it just consists of changing the code and running the program (as opposed to the longer process with C: changing the code, compiling, transferring to the device and then running).

On top of that, you can take advantage of MicroPython being easier to read and write than C, and the fact that it’s a high level programming language - which opens the door to object-oriented programming and easy interaction with the web.

See the Omega2 Dash Guide MicroPython section to get started!

Have fun and make sure to let us know when you make something awesome!
