Esp32 wrover kit 4.1 ili9341 + micropython + lvgl

I’m new to lvgl and would like to try it with micropython on esp-wrover-kit v4.1

I’ve tried different versions of both lv_micropython and esp-idf,
and it looks like only some versions can work together, for example, I only managed to compile and flash lv_micropython master with esp-idf v4.2.

However then I didn’t manage to find any working example.

Could you suggest a commit ID of lv_micropython, commit of esp-idf, and some ili9341 example that are known to work together?

Here is an example that doesn’t even try to print anything but still crashes:

import sys

# Imports
import gc
import lvgl as lv


from ili9XXX import ili9341

disp = ili9341(miso=25, mosi=23, clk=19, cs=22, dc=21, rst=18, backlight=5, power=-1)

print("init done")
disp_buf1 = lv.disp_draw_buf_t()
buf1_1 = bytearray(240 * 10)
disp_buf1.init(buf1_1, None, len(buf1_1) // lv.color_t.__SIZE__)
disp_drv = lv.disp_drv_t()
print("disp_drv init done")

disp_drv.draw_buf = disp_buf1
disp_drv.flush_cb = disp.flush
disp_drv.hor_res = 240
disp_drv.ver_res = 320

Finally, I’ve managed to get async example to work, here is mine from the master with updated pin numbers

However, it’s still not clear to me what is wrong with the original one.

Hi @kumekay!
lv_micropython on esp-wrover + ili9341 is well supported.

Latest lv_micropython works with esp-idf v4.3 and should also work with v4.0.2 and possibly other versions. The CI checks these versions.

When you create an instance of ili9341 you are not supposed to register display driver, this is already done in ili9341.

If you are looking for an example to run, I recommend
ili9341 is initialized there like this:

@amirgon Thank you so much, it works just fine
