New epaper component for ESP-IDF

E-paper component driver for the ESP-IDF framework and compatible with ESP32 / ESP32S2 can be found in this repository:

Codenamed Cal e-pe-de for the initials of E-Paper Display this is basically all what I’ve been doing the last weeks. Learning more about C++ object oriented coding and preparing a class that can be used to send graphic Buffers to different epaper displays. In order to do that I’m documenting on the go and building at the same time CALE-IDF that is our Fimware version for CALE.es but this time built on top of the Espressif IoT Development Framework (IDF)

The mission of this new component is to have a similar library for ESP-IDF that is easier to understand. If possible strictly meeting these requirements:

  • Extendable
  • Maintainable
  • Object-Oriented Programming with human-readable code and function names
  • Easy to add a new Epaper display drivers
  • Easy to implement and send stuff to your Epaper displays
  • Human-understandable
  • Well documented
  • ESP-IDF only (No Arduino classes)

Please find here the Wiki with the models that are already supported in the component:

Leave us a note if you want to try this. We can guarantee that for big epaper displays (>=400 pix. wide) it runs faster than GxEPD also supporting Adafruit GFX fonts and geometric functions. If you tried and it worked out for you please don’t forget to add a ✰ Star and spread the idea.
