WLED

My first WLED project was easier than expected

I finally built a small project that allowed me to use WLED for the first time. I used an ESP8266 board and a bunch of WS2812B LEDs to complete it.

How to use WLED to control NeoPixels or DotStars with an ESP8266 or ESP32

This WLED guide will give you an overview of what you need to get started. Find out which microcontroller and LED strip is best, and how to wire them.

What is WLED, and why is everyone excited by it?

WLED only does one thing: It controls NeoPixel LEDs (WS2812B, WS2811, SK6812). And it is class leading at what it does.
