RGB64x32MatrixPanel on ESP32
For a friend I'm making a RGB LED panel, and need to pull some social media numbers and display them on the panel.
For this I wanted an ESP32 so it could do HTTP REST calls over wifi. I came across this library for efficiently talking to HUB75 RGB panels on an ESP32:

MCU Pin Issues
The MCU has several pins with limited functionality or they are not connected. The wiring guide suggests using pins 16/17 for example, but on WROVER they aren't connected.
The final mapping I used is:
IO2 G2 IO4 LAT IO5 C IO18 CLK IO19 B IO21 B2 IO22 OE IO23 A IO25 R1 IO26 G1 IO27 B1 IO32 R2 IO33 D
The LilyGo TT T7 isn't in Platformio yet, but using a T1 works too:
