Wemos D1 Mini available for Mini Skinny NeoPixel 144 Black L

Hello for one of my project i would like to know if the Wemos D1 Mini will fit
with a Mini Skinny NeoPixel 144 LedStrip.

Anyone have experience with Adafruit LedStrip and Wemos D1 mini ?

Thank you for your response

I'm afraid we don't have any experience with that board. Maybe someone from the community will have information.

I have not tried neopixels on the D1 mini but they should work. It is just an esp8266 based board similar to the Adafruit Huzzah esp8266. I have run other Adafruit code successfully on the D1 mini. With 144 pixels you will need an external power supply. The D1 mini has 3.3 v signals so you will need to supply 3.3 v for pixel power or level shift the signal so you can get the full brightness and power the pixels with 5 v.
