WLED is one of the fastest ways to add a feature-rich implementation of an ESP8266/ESP32 webserver to control NeoPixel (WS2812B, WS2811, SK6812) or LEDs like the WS2801 and APA102.

Build amazing customisable light shows and wearables using this excellent free open-source, needs no coding skills to get running.

  1. USB Data cable and ESP8266/ESP32
  2. Access Point (AP) with WEP key access
  3. Laptop computer and USB data Cable
  4. Addressable LEDs like NeoPixel (WS2812B, WS2811, SK6812) LEDs or WS2801 and APA102
  5. WLED Web Installer – https://install.wled.me and follow the instructions
  6. Once joined to the AP you can then configure the ESP to run as AP itself and choose a GPIO pin for the the LED Data. Full documentation on the website here – https://kno.wled.ge/
