Official firmware for the Omega2 Dash is now available!

We've put together an program that can serve as the starting for Omega2 Dash programs using the LittleV Graphics Library.
- Learn more about the example program here: https://github.com/OnionIoT/Omega2-Dash#littlevgl-example-program
- See the repo here: https://github.com/OnionIoT/lv_example
Out of the box it supports:
- The Linux Framebuffer - will draw to the Omega2 Dash display
- The XPT7603 touch input device on the Omega2 Dash
- A makefile and instructions to build it as an OpenWRT package
- A small demo
Use this to get started with your own lvgl programs!

Compiled demo of LittleV Graphics Library with touch input. See how to run it on your Omega2 Dash [here]

Running the Omega's terminal on the display:
sh > /dev/tty0on your Omega2 Dash. Everything you type from then on will show up on the display and not in your terminal window.
I am waiting for my first two Omega Dash devices.
I have been looking at LVGL emulators.
Can you suggest one that you have been using? I use Linux systems exclusively.

@David-Kerr I'm using the Eclipse with SDL. It works well, other than Eclipse's usual quirks. Here's nice youtube of how to set it up.
When I upgraded to from Ubuntu 18.04 to 19 it broke and I haven't had time to look into why yet but I suspect it is some versioning issue.
Thanks for that.
I like the look of Eclipse.
Will see how I go. I installed it on 18.04 and have their example working.
I upgraded to 19.10, upgraded Eclipse to 2020-03, upgraded the eclipse-workspace and all is working well.
Thanks again for the recommendation.

@David-Kerr That's great news. I'm going to upgrade my system to Ubuntu 20, let's see if that breaks the emulator.
