Pixlet for other devices?

I recently received my Tidbyt, and I’m stoked! I’ve started building my first applet, as well. :smiley:

As a JS dev, playing with Pixlet and starting to use Starlark, I find the approach really interesting. I feel like it would work well with another side project of mine: displaying content on e-paper.

I’m using a Waveshare e-paper device, and have a C binding for Node.js. I’m currently working with epaper.js, and as great as it is, it relies on a headless Chromium instance to snapshot a webpage, transition it to a single-color image, and then send the buffer to e-paper.

Before I get too excited to dive too deep, is Pixlet and the Tidbyt ecosystem capable of supporting other “pixelated” devices? If so, where could I get started playing with a proof-of-concept?

Thanks, and keep up the great work!
