Matrix X,Y plotting Numeric's with the Neopixel service

Plotting character sets to the Neo_Pixel Service.

Numbers can be fitted into a 4x5 (with a little flare) matrix, so here is a simple set based in Python to get you going.

Worthy of note is Python has a triple """ option for text declaration, which means you can include new lines in the text input, so I was able to separate the character bitmaps to some degree.

Usage :-

charPlot(1,12,11,255,0,0)    # character number,positionx,y and colour r,g,b

import math
port = "COM15"
pin = 3
pixelCount = 216
# starting arduino
arduino = Runtime.start("arduino","Arduino")
arduino.connect(port)

# starting neopixle
neopixel = Runtime.start("neopixel","NeoPixel")
neopixel.setPin(pin)
neopixel.setPixelCount(pixelCount)

# attach the two services
neopixel.attach(arduino)

   i = 16 * (16 - (x1+1))+y1
 else :           #odd column
   i = 16 * (16 - x1) - (y1+1)  
 neopixel.setPixel(int(i),r,g,b)

To display int(number), some optional formating code.

number=123
strNumber=str(number)
for ns in range(0,len(strNumber)):
    chord=(ord(strNumber[ns])-48)           #get the ascii value-48 will put digit into 0 to 10 range for direct extraction from data table
    charPlot(chord,12-((4*ns)),11,255,0,0)
