GUI and microchip extensions
« on: March 29, 2018, 05:58:37 AM »
Hello, I'm a new user if the PiCore and I'm willing to use it with my Raspberry Pi 3. As I've understood, the PiCore Works with extensions so I should download some of these so I can get it working, I have been searching some information but I have had trouble to find what I need.
 I need to read some analogical readings and create a graphical human interface. As for the analogical readings I usually use the bcm2835.h library, so I was wondering if someone knows an extensión which I can use to read the values with a library which is similar to this one. As for the interface, I was wondering if there is any type of extensión you recommend. I usually use Qt Creator and the QMainWindow. I need to program these with a C++ or C language. Thanks in advance, any kind of help would be thanked. Have a nice day.

Welcome, sebs3.

To look for a specific file, one can do
Code: [Select]
provides.sh bcm2835.h
or via the GUI App Browser (apps).

Apps --> Cloud (Remote) --> Browse
Next to the search bar
Search --> Provides
Type "bcm2835.h" and hit Enter.

Unfortunately, there's currently no such file int the repo.
You might need to find the source code and compile one for your self.

QT doesn't appear in the Pi repository. I do see GTK1, GTK2, and GTK3 as well as FLTK (Fast Light Tool Kit).

Hi sebs3
There's also something called  wxWidgets  in the repository.
