  • WLED

    Control WS2812B and many more types of digital RGB LEDs with an ESP8266 or ESP32 over WiFi!

    Project mention: Those RGB Pixel Christmas trees cost how much? | /r/WLED | 2023-12-11
  • WS2812FX

    WS2812 FX Library for Arduino and ESP8266

    Project mention: Adafruit Neopixel lib - fading takes a long time | /r/adafruit | 2023-03-27

    I use WS2812FX library for controlling neopixels, and it performs very fast transitions. I never use the amount of LEDs that you are using, but I would suggest you give it a try. It is easy to customize as well. https://github.com/kitesurfer1404/WS2812FX
