Controlling the Dot Star from c++?

Loks like the RGB-LED is pins 6 & 7? So how do I control this? Never done Dot'Start things. Only NeoPixel stuff.

Yep, the standard DotStar library will work:

As long as you use the library, the functions are pretty much the same as for NeoPixels. The low-level signals and timing are different, but that's all under the hood.
