>>  Not at the moment. There were some efforts in the past to add compositing of GL-based windows into eglfs, similarly to how sw-rendered QWidget windows are handled, but these got cancelled in favour of the upcoming QOpenGLWidget and QQuickWidget APIs which will provide a modern replacement for QGLWidget that is functional on all platforms. The bad news is that QOpenGLWidget is targeted for 5.4 and will not make it into 5.3.

I'd go with DirectFBGL if platform in question supports it.
