CircuitPython 6.2.0 LED Sequins

I'm looking for a tutorial to code LED Sequins in the CircuitPython 6.2.0 software with the Circuit Playground Express

Unlike NeoPixels that require some programming to make them work, the LED sequins are simple LEDs. apply 3v-6v and they light up.

If you want to get fancy you can connect the + side to a PWM signal (and the - side to ground) to control the brightness. They are, however single color.

See https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-led-sequins. Although it's written for the Gemma M0, very similar code (maybe the outputs will need to be changed) will work on the CircuitPlayground Express.
