A Python Library for Raspberry Pi and Adafruit Digital RGB LED Strips #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Here’s a great new python library for the Adafruit Digital RGB LED Strips, shared by Julio Terra:

Earlier today I published the first beta release of the LED Strip python library that we created at the LAB for the Raspberry Pi. This library was developed to be used with the Digital RGB LED strips from Adafruit – our favorite LED strip.

We have been playing with these for quite a while using Arduinos, and Adafruit’s Arduino library. With that in mind, we structured out library similar to the Arduino library from Adafruit. To help you get up and running quickly, we put together two examples scripts and a readme file featuring an initial draft of the documentation.

One of the reasons that we are so excited about using the LED strips with Raspberry Pis is that they play really nicely with Spacebrew – the LAB’s dynamic routing tookit/service. This is especially true since Adam Mayer developed an awesome python Spacebrew library at our meet-up in January.

Here is a link to the Spacebrew python library repo. Make sure to go through the readme file because you’ll need to install several dependencies to get the Spacebrew library up and running on your device. I’ll post more information about this library sometime in the coming week or two.
