8x64 LED Martix MAX7119 and ESP-01

Hello Marco and all Others.)))

Can I try ESP-01 with MAX7119?
It has 4 GPIO pins: 0, 1(TX), 2 and 3(RX) and none of them CS CLK MOSI pins!
So I could not use SPI.h and MD_MAX72XX(CS_PIN, MAX_DEVICES) function.
And will use MD_MAX72XX(DATA_PIN, CLK_PIN, CS_PIN, MAX_DEVICES) function.
Will it work like this?
What to do to continue using SPI.h?
If I would use SPI.h, Adafruit_GFX.h and Max72xxPanel.h, can i set DATA_PIN, CLK_PIN, CS_PIN "around" SPI.h?
Max72xxPanel.h does not have function like MD_MAX72XX(DATA_PIN, CLK_PIN, CS_PIN, MAX_DEVICES)

Thank you

You will need to use the class initialiser with the arbitrary pins (ie, not using SPI.h).

And will use MD_MAX72XX(DATA_PIN, CLK_PIN, CS_PIN, MAX_DEVICES) function.

Yes this is the right approach. It will be slower than the hardware SPI but should work.

Can’t give advice about the other libraries.

Why limit yourself to the ESP-01?

Sorry, could not find what it means. "class initialiser with the arbitrary pins" - my knowledge is not so deep yet
Intend just use
Tx = GPIO 1
Rx = GPIO 3
will disconnect/connect while flashing

The md_max72xx initialisation the specifies the pin numbers.

The md_max72xx initialisation the specifies the pin numbers.

Than you. That is very good (against Max72xxPanel.h) but still busy to make Cyrillic work with md_max72xx. Particularly with scrollText(char *p)/
