NEOPIXELS light effects and software applications

by MassimoManca on Wed Sep 09, 2020 6:53 am

Hello guys, I am using Neopixels and similar LEDs (rings, long chains and single led) and I am searching SW libraries to make better light effects or SW application as light shows and similar to drive the LEDs. I suppose something may already exist, so any help will be very appreciated.

I would start by looking through some of the NeoPixel based guides at https://learn.adafruit.com/search?q=neopixel.

If you're using CircuitPython there's the animation library: https://learn.adafruit.com/circuitpython-led-animations.

For C++ there's the FastLED library: http://fastled.io/.

This has been a good reference to visualize your design https://www.tweaking4all.com/hardware/a ... s/#library
Just browsing through the adafruit learn section on completed projects will link you to code used for a particular effect. Good luck.
