TotalCross is an easy-to-use Open Source SDK aiming the fast designing of beautiful Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) for multiple platforms such as embedded, IoT, mobile, and desktop.
TotalCross version 6 added support for Embedded Linux (ARMv7 and ARMv8) and support for TorizonCore.
To demonstrate its features, TotalCross has created a Demo container for TorizonCore. Some demo's highlights:
The following Computer on Modules are currently supported:
This partner demo container is meant for the evaluation of the technology. It is suitable for development, but not for production.
This section provides instructions for you to get started with TotalCross quickly.

Displays and Monitors used in Embedded Systems are available in a myriad of configuration possibilities - resistive, capacitive or without touch, single or multi-touch, different resolution, density of pixels, pin-out and clock frequency are some examples.
To make things easy for you, Toradex provides specific instructions on how to use its display offerings as well as comprehensive information about how to interface your custom display or monitor to Toradex modules.
There are three tested and recommended displays by Toradex:
You can easily set-up and get them running with 3 steps explained on Setting up Recommended Displays with Torizon. If you prefer to configure a specific display, it is suggested the reading about the easy to use Torizon device tree overlays container on Device Tree Overlays.
Support for embedded Linux is available since TotalCross version 6.0.2. We recommend using the latest version available. See the TotalCross Changelog for more information.
