Graphic LCD on Pinguino

Marcus, the king of display, made this’ arduino compatible’ library for Pinguino.
This library, managed by the library user tool of beta 9, can display pictures and text with a lot of different fonts.
I plan to incorporate it in beta 9-02. The development is very fast now and it’s time to launch new release more often.

See all Marcus work on his website.
