JOS- ARDUINO TFTLCD MENU LASTEST GFX LIB

JOS- ARDUINO TFTLCD MENU LASTEST GFX LIB

Updated Latest Libraries!!!!

“JOS”, now uses Adafruits latest’s TFTLCD and GFX Libraries on arduino IDE v1.0.3 as of this post 2013. Which are included in the download as well.  After some needed updates and conversions.  I’m very happy to let you all know it is in fact a little quicker  as well. There are still yet a few changes I want to make to rid a few repeating redundancies.

But alas I’ve received more than a few requests for updates and coding comments. So you asked and now you shall receive.

  JOS stands for Jeremy’s Operating System and is open source. I encourage you to use it, hack it, and do what ever you want with it. I know some might say “it’s not an operating system!” I know, but it’s just a name. It is based on Lady Ada’s TFTLCD and TouchScreen libraries. It shares some of the code from Lady Ada’s tftpaint sketch found in the TFTLCD library. It is written in the Arduino IDE and works perfect with the 2.8″ TFTLCD breakout board and the Touch Shield.

This version does not support and SD card/bitmap functions as I do not have a touch shield yet. I will write these in when I get a Touch shield some day.

This was already A great piece of code Jeremy over at thecustomgeek.com created.

After giving it some trial Runs. I could instantly see the potential. Tho It worked great if you are on a uno board or the ATmega: 168/328′s.  I found out quickly it wasn’t up to the task of running on a Mega 1280/2560. Which I myself use most of the time.  Thus started my quest for improvements.
