Question about OSMC GUI

I tried placing this in Development but was not able to create a new topic there…

I’m curious what OSMC (specifically media center?) is using for it’s GUI? From what I can tell, OSMC doesn’t use X Windows server, so I’m guessing there’s some kind of direct framebuffer software? Are you using something custom, or an open-source library for the default OSMC GUI that Kodi runs ontop of?

I understand it’s a huge “topic” so if you could just point me to the path in the source code, I’d be happy to dig into it myself.


It uses OpenGL ES currently.
