NeoPixel Strand Esp8226 Weirdness...

GroG's picture

Ahoy!  - I have a neopixel 300 led strand - I intend to pimp out my Wife's Honda Odyssey as a practical joke..  So this is for a "good cause" ...

I got it working on an Uno, but on the Esp8226 I got "no love" ..

I'm using the Adafruit library, and strandtest sketch "works" on an Uno.

One interesting thing I noticed is when "strandtest" is running - pixels change 3 at a time..


Wow....

Terminated Overlay

New overlay filter.  Thanks to astro for the idea and Mats for the direction :)

Still needs a little polish and maybe some thread safety.

The overlay filters looks like it will be loads of fun


AdafruitMotorShield - what the what ?

GroG's picture

I'm running the Test service which whips the auto-magic elves into looking in every nook & cranny for little bugs.  They found lots hiding in AdafruitMotorShield.  

I don't think its worked for years :P 

It relied on code being "injected" into MrlComm before being compiled and uploaded.  It also required the AdafruitMotorShield library to be included/compiled into the upload.

So how to get AdafruitMotorShield worky ?
