There is no documentation yet. The skin format is based on text2skin's
format with some simplifications and useful extensions like
- global font definitions
- variables (numbers and strings), evaluated while loading the skin
- arithmetic functions
- font functions to query font height, string width, ...
- image functions to query image width and height
Take a look at the supplied default skin for an example.
Installation is as usual: copy the graphlcd subfolder to your VDR
config/plugin directory. Start VDR with following example parameters:
-P'graphlcd -d <your display> -s default'. The new parameter -s
specifies the skin to use.
The default skin shoudl look OK on both 128x64 and 240x128 displays.
