M5StickC Textbuffer Scrolling Display

A library to display texts on the M5StickC in any orientation. The display scrolls and wraps text lines automatically.

The M5StickC is an ideal development tool for various projects. The ESP32 enables almost universal application possibilities and with the 160x80 RGB pixel display the M5StickC can also be used for graphically complex applications.

But sometimes only a simple text output is needed. Similar to a terminal, where the text scrolls up with every new line.

Generally the display driver supports scrolling in hardware, but I haven’t found a solution to scroll text with the driver in landscape orientation. So I programmed a simple text buffer and corresponding drawing functions to display the buffer on the display.”
