    Control addressable LED with Arduino

    A nice "gateway drug" is an addressable (programmable) LED strip. Hook it up to a Raspberry Pi or Arduino and have at it! I bought cheap motion sensors and will be installing a strip along the inside of a staircase to light up when I approach it.

    Another project of mine is having the LEDs light up as I play piano:

    Unsure where I'll go after I finish these projects, but LEDs are so much fun!

    Light up an LED strip with your digital piano and a Raspberry Pi

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • WLED

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

    WLED is also fantastic if you are using WS/APA/STK style addressable LEDs. You just need a dirt cheap ESP32/8266 and you get a wifi connected lamp with a lovely web ui, cool animations, android app, timers, home automation integrations etc etc.

  • esp32-cnc

    For anyone who stumbles across this later, here's a KiBot project file that will automatically export the JLCPCB-compatible BOM/CPL file:

    https://gitlab.com/stavros/esp32-cnc/-/blob/master/project.k...

    It does this from a field on each part in the schematic called "JLC" containing the part number. The only thing I'm unsure of is whether the "footprint" column needs to be edited manually later, though.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
