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.

You will soon be able to build LaMetric TIME alternatives with ESPHome

The ESPHome addressable light display opens up a whole world of possibilities. With it, You can turn any LED matrix or strip in to a display.

The ESPHome seven segment clock with WS2812B LEDs

This 3D-printed seven segment clock uses WS2812B RGB LEDs. As it uses ESPHome it can be controlled by Home Assistant.
