Guide Update and New CircuitPython Library: Pixie LEDs!

Now together: Pixie LEDs and CircuitPython. 3 watt LEDs made super simple!

It’s easy to use the super bright Pixie LEDs with CircuitPython and the Adafruit CircuitPython Pixie module. You can light up each LED differently, light them all up the same, or even light up a rainbow! The new CircuitPython library makes it super simple. And we updated the guide! The new page added to the guide shows you how to wire up your Pixie LEDs to your CircuitPython board. Then, we’ve included example code that provides three different ways to light up your LEDs. Check it out and have fun!

To install the library on your board, check out this guide.
