Question Re: 12mm Diffused Flat Digital RGB LED Pixels (Strand of 25) - WS2801

Hiya,

I created an arduino project involving an accelerometer and the RGB LED Strip - 32 LED/m Addressable - 1m from sparkfun (sorry...https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11272). I need to recreate the project and would much rather use adafruit's 12mm Diffused Flat Digital RGB LED Pixels (Strand of 25) - WS2801. Does anyone know if this new adafruit strip will be able to run the same program without significant changes (I can change the strip length)? I needed a lot of help to get the first one going and would like this one to be straightfoward. Does anyone know?

Thanks so much!

Sian

Should be relatively simply. Other than the strand length, I *think* the SparkFun strips used B/G/R color order rather than R/G/B, so you might just need to shuffle some numbers around.
