    The FastLED library for colored LED animation on Arduino. Please direct questions/requests for help to the FastLED Reddit community: We'd like to use github "issues" just for tracking library bugs / enhancements.

    I have connected the LEDs the same way with the nano Every that I used with the Fake Nano, but don't get any output whatsoever. So I copied an example form the FastLED wiki: To just blink the leds, but even that doesn't seem to work I've seen a lot of issues on github concerning the Nano Every, but I've also seen there are some people who managed to get it to work.. So what I'm asking is, am I overlooking something? Is there anyone who has managed to get this combination of products to work correctly?
