Hey Txus! Glad to have you! :)
I'm starting a personal project that involves
several arduino boards
that measure temperature and humidity, and a central device to diplay
the data. The main device is an orange pi plus 2 with a 1024*600, 7
inch capacitive display attached .
For the joy of programming, I was thinking of creating a ncurses app to
display (between others) some charts, including measured temperatures
with the official data captured by the spanish meteorologic agency. The
goal is to have 2 lines displayed at the same time, and see the
difference between them.
Is this data something that could be displayed using plain ASCII?
I'm thinking something along the lines of 
I'd like your opinions on the use of ncurses for
displaying data in such
display. One of the goals of this project is to use as less energy as
possible, and be as efficient as possible. Programing in asm is not an
option right now.
ncurses would certainly work, but would have a bit more overhead than
just rendering something with ASCII.
It might even be an opportunity to integrate figlet :D
