I soldered my own LED panel consisting of 4 horizontal stripes that contain 24 WS2811 LEDs each - so it’s 24x4. It’s just a test, later it will be 24x12. It’s working fine - with one restriction: I cannot feed my own content to it. I’m just lacking the coding skills. So I just tried out the unicorn library - with (limited) success! It comes with plenty of examples and of course a big community of tinkerers. The limitiation of the success lies - as you might guess - in the different layout of the panel. the unicorn library is written for 8x8 panels! So the display on my panel is A) fractured and B) not all LEDs are used.
So pleeeease, I SOOOO want my beautiful LED panel to do tons of funny stuff. Can someone take me by the hand and change some of the code to fit my panel?
I’m actually sure that I’m not the only one that would gain something from it. I mean… soldering a panel from a long LED strip, connecting three wires to the Pi, run a script - super easy. AND SUPER FUN! :)
