Can't use uGFX with ST7735 on nrf51

Hey, I gonna use uGFX with ST7735, unfortunately there is no board_ST7735_template.h for this driver and I wrote my own:

nrf51 doesn't have systick and instead of this one I use RTC timer with frequency 32kHz, but when I compile it (without errors) I see nothing on my display and in the console output. if I comment out everything with uGFX I see console output, more over I have my own lib for ST7735 and it works fine. May I use uGFX without systick, I think it needs for display's backligh?

Maybe someone had have an experience with this display and nrf51822?

Please excuse the late reply - I wanted to digg out some sources.

We've plenty of people that use µGFX on nRF51 and nRF52 platforms. The nRF51 does have a systick. I've attached a GOS port and the corresponding systick handler implementation for an nRF51 port I made quite some time ago.  

In general: You might want to check whether the µGFX core runs before starting to use optional modules such as GDISP and GINPUT. You can have a look at the GOS demos - they allow you to check whether the µGFX core is working correctly without using the display code.

ugfx_port.c

gos_nrf5sdk11.c
