I sort of have that. I've got my graphics and UI libraries. Issue is I'm stuck.

I'm missing a major feature, and that is anti-aliased draws (excepting TrueType and SVG which are).

The issue is that when combined with alpha blending (semi transparent draws) it becomes really tricky because you can't draw the same pixel in the same place twice - ever or it leads to artifacts as the pixel effectively gets blended with itself thus halving the transparency.

I can't find algorithms to do it properly+efficiently, outside of LVGL and I don't understand the LVGL code to do it, even looking at the documentation and pouring over the source. It uses some kind of masking technique that I don't understand at all.

Without that feature, it makes little sense for me to provide a full suite of controls for my UI library, since I will have to rewrite them all to use anti-aliased draws, and without it they look pretty ugly.

The whole thing is a bit overwhelming so I've been avoiding it.
