A New Toy!

So this just arrived! I can't wait to play with it! It's an Adafruit Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266 WiFi.

I'll probably wipe the NodeMCU firmware and use the Arduino IDE.  Instructions here.

 

Has anybody connected a ILI9341 TFT display to a Raspberry Pi via SPI?

I picked up a couple of these displays from AliExpress on for under $4 each and I'm trying to wire it up to a Raspberry Pi 3 via SPI without much luck. Has anyone done this?

I want to use SPI because: 1) I don't need the performance of setting it up as a native display, and 2) I feel that SPI will require less configuration and modification of Raspbian.
