Table of content



  • Powerful building blocks: buttons, charts, lists, sliders, images, etc.
  • Advanced graphics engine: animations, anti-aliasing, opacity, smooth scrolling, blending modes, etc
  • Supports various input devices: touchscreen, mouse, keyboard, encoder, buttons, etc.
  • Supports multiple displays
  • Hardware independent, can be use with any microcontroller and display
  • Scalable to operate with little memory (64 kB Flash, 16 kB RAM)
  • Multi-language support with UTF-8 handling, CJK, Bidirectional and Arabic script support
  • Fully customizable graphical elements via CSS-like styles
  • Powerful layouts inspired by CSS: Flexbox and Grid
  • OS, External memory and GPU are supported but not required. (built in support for STM32 DMA2D, and NXP PXP and VGLite)
  • Smooth rendering even with a single frame buffer
  • Written in C and compatible with C++
  • Micropython Binding exposes LVGL API in Micropython
  • Simulator to develop on PC without embedded hardware
  • 100+ simple Examples
  • Documentation and API references online and in PDF


Basically, every modern controller (which is able to drive a display) is suitable to run LVGL. The minimal requirements are:

Name Minimal Recommended
Architecture 16, 32 or 64 bit microcontroller or processor
Clock > 16 MHz > 48 MHz
Flash/ROM > 64 kB > 180 kB
Static RAM > 16 kB > 48 kB
Draw buffer > 1 × hor. res. pixels > 1/10 screen size
Compiler C99 or newer

Note that the memory usage might vary depending on the architecture, compiler and build options.

Supported platforms

LVGL is completely platform independent and can be used with any MCU that fulfills the requirements.
Just to mention some platforms:

LVGL is also available as:

Get started

This list shows the recommended way of learning the library:

  1. Check the Online demos to see LVGL in action (3 minutes)
  2. Read the Introduction page of the documentation (5 minutes)
  3. Get familiar with the basics on the Quick overview page (15 minutes)
  4. Set up a Simulator (10 minutes)
  5. Try out some Examples
  6. Port LVGL to a board. See the Porting guide or check the ready to use Projects
  7. Read the Overview page to get a better understanding of the library (2-3 hours)
  8. Check the documentation of the Widgets to see their features and usage
  9. If you have questions go to the Forum
  10. Read the Contributing guide to see how you can help to improve LVGL (15 minutes)


For more examples see the examples folder.

LVGL button with label example


lv_obj_t * btn = lv_btn_create(lv_scr_act());                   /*Add a button to the current screen*/
lv_obj_set_pos(btn, 10, 10);                                    /*Set its position*/
lv_obj_set_size(btn, 100, 50);                                  /*Set its size*/
lv_obj_add_event_cb(btn, btn_event_cb, LV_EVENT_CLICKED, NULL); /*Assign a callback to the button*/

lv_obj_t * label = lv_label_create(btn);                        /*Add a label to the button*/
lv_label_set_text(label, "Button");                             /*Set the labels text*/
lv_obj_center(label);                                           /*Align the label to the center*/

void btn_event_cb(lv_event_t * e)

def btn_event_cb(e):

# Create a Button and a Label
btn = lv.btn(lv.scr_act())
btn.set_pos(10, 10)
btn.set_size(100, 50)
btn.add_event_cb(btn_event_cb, lv.EVENT.CLICKED, None)

label = lv.label(btn)
