I.MX6 - GUI Framework (HTML5)

Customer is using the imx6 family for their products and they have successfully managed to produce products using QT framework on top of your processors without X windows (EGL surface on top of FB).

Here is the question:

Now we need to explore further our options and check other GUI frameworks that use new technologies (HTML5). For that reason we want to be able to use/test X11 configuration (Electron Atom Framework with nodejs). Among other  we also need to be able to use dual H/W accelerated screen (this is not feasible now with 3.10.17 kernel and as i have found out not even with 4.1.15 kernel, and please correct me if i am wrong). Also we need to be able to determine if, with vivante GPU and by using 3.10.17 or 4.1.15 kernel, is doable to use  hardware accelerated canvas (output taken from chromiumengine using X11):

Graphics Feature Status

  • Canvas: Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled

Also ideally we would like to know if hw acceleration can be enabled, how and what this means in terms of development.

 Let me point out that for us is very important to be able to determine if dual hw accelerated screen is not feasible on X11 due to H/W or S/W limitation since we haven't seen this working even on the latest BSP from NXP.
