Seriously for a lot of people it's will be perfect, they just need to learn one of the GL platforms ... hint hint Gavin
I can take a hint, eventually
OpenVG will do the 2D stuff I have been doing on Pi's with pygame.
People say OpenVG is dead but for single purpose applications like Ultibo it is good for making coding easier.
Let you know after I try it
Could be used for UI's too.
Knowing Garry he probably has all the lower level stuff accessible via registers etc so it could be done that way too, hint
LdB, I use micropython on piCore OS, it comes as standard, but the Linus OS gets in the way sometimes, hence moving to Ultibo.
Pascalscript seems to work on Ultibo, I expect Micropython will be easy for someone with the skillset, hint
Probably any language interpreter could be got working as all the lower level stuff is done. Basic anyone?
I even made some shell extensions that made me think I could do a version of BASH.
I am not a coder yet in a few hours I made shell extensions with Ultibo.
Not sure how long it would take me to do that in Linux? Months if not years to get up to speed.
I am a newbie with Open???? and I don't want to go deep into register level coding so this is a big breakthrough for users like me .
And I had not been hassling Garry, I suspected he had been really quiet for a reason but there was clues what was coming.
I just did not expect it so soon and so sorted
I don't know what to call this stuff, but this is a new way of coding on Pi's.
Eventually it can be ported to other SoC/SBC's so it is a game changer for developers too as it is much faster than the traditional methods.
So it is a new alternative that Garry has pretty much single handed let free into the world to shake things up
The really great thing is it is based on existing, well tested bits and pieces like Laz/FPC/VCHIQ.
I'm dancing on Rainbows.
