Harmony Graphics Composer Driver for ILI9486/ILI9488

Hello,
I have a custom made board with PIC32MX795F512L and a 3.5 inch TFT LCD module with the ILI9486/ILI9488 chip. I've managed to make it work based on the chip's basic commands. 
Does anyone have an experience on using the Harmony Graphics Composer on non listed graphics chips? do I have to write my own driver for the above chip?
Is it worth it to spend my time on this task, or is it a Holy Grail Quest?
Thank you

    First Harmony Questions should be in the Harmony forum.
    Second search there. You will find some information on how to make a Graphics driver.

    First: Yes that's correct, but since I was wondering around I was led in the Curiosity Forum, I posted the thread and it "stuck" there. Does anyone know how to move the thread to the correct forum?  
    Second: Information on Harmony-Graphics Composer is scarce. Don't tell to anyone is a well kept secret!

    You can not move a thread, the best you can do is start a new thread and insert a link to it here.
    There is an enormous  amount of Harmony information that is not a secret.
    NKurzman's second suggestion is quite accurate.

    I sincerely thank you both. Although, you have to understand the old assembly programmer's worries. You could see these thoughts if you wonder around the forum, we have our objections and at the end we are programming a microcontroller not a PC. 
    I was not claiming that the information is secret, but I was trying to stress out the fact that the documentation is minimal, the examples are too few (in some cases there are no examples) and are written for only one demonstration board.  I shall stop here, my post has totally different aiming.
