Blinkt! (8 RGB APA102 Pixel by Pimoroni)

Post by dglaude » Sat Oct 01, 2016 9:18 pm

I have been working on porting the Blinky! library from Pimoroni:

The Blinkt! is a 8 APA102 bar for the Raspberry Pi.
I wanted to run most example code but on an ESP8266 running MicroPython.
So I created a thin layer that offer the same API using the existing APA102 support build into MicroPython.

You can find my code and instruction on this Gist: ... 8e77a6e5a1

I would love to get feed back on this as I am pretty new to MicroPython, let alone Python and electronic.
I feel this Gist is not the best way, and I would like to learn more on how to contribute as I am working on other hardware...

PS: I have somewhere support for Pimoroni Unicorn HAT (8*8 NeoPixel for Raspberry Pi) too, but it work best with Unicorn pHAT that as 4*8 NeoPixel.
