The code is written in C and uses TI-RTOS, you will find in the code lots of lighting algorithms and many other features that could be used in your projects. If you do not want to code, then you can just use the binaries.
What makes LightServer special is a number of iOS apps that are available on the Apple App Store that enable you to control the lights in various ways – https://itunes.apple…llo/id914825403
LightKit RGB is an all in one lighting control app with many lighting control features LightDrum is an interactive light and drum app LightTunes is a dedicated music synchronization app LightServer Pack includes all of the above
I am selling the apps, and hope people feel this is an Ok thing to do. There are many thousands of hours of work in the apps, in fact they are about 70% of the effort that went into the entire project, and they are likely to make up less than 10% of the cost of a typical setup.
Don’t worry if you do not have an iOS device, you can control the lights via HTML pages that are on LightServer (see attached image), but you do not get many of the cool features which require an App to function.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
