A year ago we launched the AllPixel to much success on Kickstarter and, with it, BiblioPixel; our flexible, hardware agnostic animation framework. BiblioPixel makes writing and running your animations easy, and quickly gained in popularity; racking up over 20,000 installs in the last year. Today we are pleased to announce an exciting new update that brings BiblioPixel out of the command line and into your browser… PixelWeb!
Along with PixelWeb, today we also release a major upgrade to BiblioPixel! In v2.0 you can look forward to all of these great improvements:
- Interactive Animation/Game Support
- Input/GamePad handling
- Animation Queues
- Texture Maps
- Pixel/Display Scaling
- Improved Image File Handling
- Better Font Rendering
- Better Threading Support
- Global Brightness Handling
- Up to 300% Faster
- Many, Many Bug Fixes
We’ve also moved all animations over to our BiblioPixelAnimations repository, which is automatically installed by PixelWeb. We encourage all BiblioPixel and PixelWeb users to submit any animations they would like to share to the repository!
To quickly get started using PixelWeb, check out the install and usage video below. More information (including how to load your own animations into PixelWeb) will be coming very soon as we build out the PixelWeb Wiki, so stay tuned!
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.
