Halloweenfire - :jack_o_lantern: Arduino sketch for multiple neopixels to create spooky 'fire' effect

  •        44

I have tested this with an Adafruit Metro Mini 5v and an Adafruit Pro Trinket 3v successfully. You'll also need to get your hands on some NeoPixels and the NeoPixel library. I recommending powering this with a USB battery charger.

NeoPixelBus - Adafruit enhanced NeoPixel support library

  •    C++

A library to control one wire protocol RGB and RGBW leds like SK6812, WS2811, WS2812 and WS2813 that are commonly refered to as NeoPixels and two wire protocol RGB like APA102 commonly refered to as DotStars. Supports most Arduino platforms. This is the most functional library for the Esp8266 as it provides solutions for all Esp8266 module types even when WiFi is used. For quick questions jump on Gitter and ask away.

ESP8266HueEmulator - Emulate a Philips Hue bridge running on an ESP8266 using the Arduino IDE.

  •    C++

This sketch emulates a Philips Hue bridge running on an ESP8266 using the Arduino IDE. Right now this is a proof-of-concept; contributions are highly welcome. Hue client apps can discover the emulated bridge and begin talking to it using the Hue protocol. Optionally, vou can use a strip of individually addressable WS2812b NeoPixels and attach it to GPIO2. The sketch talks to a strip of NeoPixels connected to GPIO2 (= pin D4 on the WEMOS D1 mini) of the ESP8266 with no additional circuitry. Right now the sketch uses the NeoPixels to tell that it is powered on, connected to the WLAN etc., and can switch on the first 3 NeoPixels using a Hue client (e.g., the iOS app).

Adafruit_NeoPixel - Neo Pixels!

  •    C++

Arduino library for controlling single-wire-based LED pixels and strip such as the Adafruit 60 LED/meter Digital LED strip, the Adafruit FLORA RGB Smart Pixel, the Adafruit Breadboard-friendly RGB Smart Pixel, the Adafruit NeoPixel Stick, and the Adafruit NeoPixel Shield. After downloading, rename folder to 'Adafruit_NeoPixel' and install in Arduino Libraries folder. Restart Arduino IDE, then open File->Sketchbook->Library->Adafruit_NeoPixel->strandtest sketch.

Reference-Cards - Business card-sized references for Arduino and basic electronics


Business card-sized references for Arduino and basic electronics. I hand these out at workshops along with a couple LEDs and a coin cell in a 3x4" Ziplock bag. By design, these are NOT exhaustive references. 80/20 principle...the most common and essential information in the least space. They're aimed at beginners and the goal wasn't to handle every case, but to plant seeds: "Oh yeah, those resistor stripes mean something" or "Oh yeah, more current needs bigger wire" -- follow-on study then takes place elsewhere. Case in point, 5-band resistors aren't even mentioned, too esoteric for early learning.

Adafruit_MQTT_Library - Arduino library for MQTT support

  •    C++

Arduino library for MQTT support, including access to Adafruit IO. Works with the Adafruit FONA, Arduino Yun, ESP8266 Arduino platforms, and anything that supports Arduino's Client interface (like Ethernet shield). See included examples for how to use the library to access an MQTT service to publish and subscribe to feeds. Note that this does not support the full MQTT spec but is intended to support enough for QoS 0 and 1 publishing.

fadecandy - Easy to use open source hardware to drive WS2811 LEDs with high-quality color

  •    C

Fadecandy is a project that makes LED art easier, tastier, and more creative. We're all about creating tools that remove the technical drudgery from making LED art, freeing you to do more interesting, nuanced, and creative things. We think LEDs are more than just trendy display devices, we think of them as programmable light for interactive art. These are fuzzy limitations based on current software capabilities and rough electrical limits, so you may be able to stretch them. But this gives you an idea about the kind of art we try to support. Projects are generally larger than wearables, but smaller than entire buildings.
