GeneralThe little SoC that could Pin

Woo!

I'm about to achieve maximum hardware efficiency, using all the RAM and all the cores of my little device to render a page of an epub book. It will render the current page and the next page (or previous page if you're moving backward) so that you can flip pages while reading in a way that appears to be more responsive. Basically, I'll have the next page rendered so you can change pages as soon as you're done reading the page you're on.

This ESP32 device was never intended for something this intense. The minimum hardware requirements I've seen previously for an epub reader is 512 times the RAM (not a typo!) and at least 4x the CPU power of this device. If I'm being completely fair comparing a WROVER rather than a WROOM it's still 64 times the RAM for a traditional minimal epub reader.

The final frontier for me is CSS and code size. The former is doable if I'm willing to live with limitations. It will support just enough to render text for a book okay. The latter is doable I think, but if it's not I'm dead in the water. My code has to fit on the device.

Wish me luck.
