RGB LED Nodejs
I have nodejs running great but looking to control ws2812b RGB LEDs (Neopixels).
Here is a library with node for the RPi. How could I do this with the Omega?
Hi @Joseph-Sammarco, we're working on our version of it. There are some differences between the Raspberry Pi version and our version. Should be out really soon. Stay tuned!
@Boken-Lin That would be awesome. Would be great not to have to use an Arduino to do that and relay messages over pins or USB. Hey, if I were to want to use USB serial to communicate with an Arduino what would be the easiest way??
@Boken-Lin I have some strings of these lights as well (both the
Vcc-clock-data-gndand the Manchester-encoded
Vcc-data-gndversions) and my projects usually end up using them in some way or another. I'm very interested in this library, and very interested in not having to port this library myself!
@Joseph-Sammarco If you plug the USB to serial on the Omega, it should be recognized as
/dev/ttyUSB0or under a similar name. Once you've connected the
RXfrom the USB to serial to the
TXon the Omega, respectively, you can simply issue the
echocommand to write to
@Craig-Soich Yup! We are looking forward to it ourselves because we want to decorate our Christmas tree with Neopixels
so you wrote neopixel library?
