Pico and Dotstar strips

Can anyone help me get started with using a strip of Dotstar LEDs driven by a Raspberry Pi Pico?
I’ve had some success using the equivalent NeoPixel (WS2812) strips, but am struggling to find examples of the DotStar/APA102/SK9822 equivalent. Isn’t there a version of the blinkt library which could be used? I seem to keep going round in circles.

I blame the “brain fog” ;-)

The Pico RGB Keyboard Base uses APA102 LEDs.
That library may be usable?
With some tinkering?

Thanks, I didn’t spot that one earlier.

For reference I ended up using this…

With some clarification from the author “spi_sck connects to CLK and spi_tx connects to SDI”.
