After some more reading I've stumbled over pyglet. Any experiences with
it? It seems it does a lot of cool things, if anyone has used it more
intensely I'd be happy to hear if the following things can be done:
- Linux framebuffer (16, 24 bpp) display of 2d graphics with overlays
(i.e. menues, contextual areas that pop up etc.). I don't have X on the
embedded device, just the regular framebuffer.
- alpha blending of several layers.
- rendering of TTF fonts and unicode, for example display of arabic text
(which renders from right to left) and mixed text support like in the
unicode bidirectional algorithm.
- hardware caching of bitmaps for faster graphics operations (needed for
tool tips or similar tasks).
I'll try to find that out myself (I'm pretty excited about the thing
already ^^), but I'd be happy to hear of people who have used it already.
