Higher level WS2801 driver that presents the LED string as a sequence. It is the same api as the NeoPixel library.
Colors are stored as tuples by default. However, you can also use int hex syntax
to set values similar to colors on the web. For example,
on the web) is equivalent to
(0x80, 0, 0).
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ws2801
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ws2801
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ws2801
import board import adafruit_ws2801 leds = adafruit_ws2801.WS2801(board.D2, board.D0, 25) leds.fill((0x80, 0, 0))
