Just a small hack, so I can easily use my solder. (read more)
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
We’ve posted about Adam Haile’s extended Raspberry Pi library for LPD8806 before. Now, he’s written in with an updated library called BiblioPixel. Thanks so much for keeping us in the loop! On the Adafruit Forums he writes:
Two years ago, you posted about my extended Raspberry Pi library for the LPD8806 LED strips
Well, I’ve been working for over a year on a completely new, rewritten
library I call BiblioPixel.
This time, I’ve gone way beyond just the LPD8806 and Raspberry Pi. BiblioPixel takes the pain out of controlling your LEDs and programming your animations. It provides a “code once, run on anything” foundation with a robust driver model, allowing control of nearly any display type, strip or matrix. For matrices built from LED strips, it automatically handles the conversion of (x,y) coordinates to strip indices. It is also orders of magnitude faster than the old library, having been written with high frame rates in mind.(read more)
