LVGL + ESP32 + FreeType



Recently, I have a requirement: How to run lvgl+freetype on ESP32?

The difficulty of this idea is building the environment for freetype. I want to make it very simple, and the best way is to use it as a component. Therefore, I have made the related dependencies of freetype into an esp-idf component! I named it: esp_freetype

This is very simple, you can get esp_freetype here:


This is the effect I ran on the Retro-Yao-Mio(esp32s3) board:
