Here’s a pile of FastLED 2.1 demo’s I’ve gathered (some I even wrote) at https://github.com/atuline/FastLED-Demos
Good work! I’m sure this will be a great resource for new FastLED fanatics.
Thanks Andrew. Having a variety of examples is always helpful.
I’ve updated this with some new demos as well as uploaded a framework for providing IR, keyboard, button and MEMS microphone input.
Andrew - Just getting started here with FastLED…but I keep getting similar compiler errors such as this (sorry I"m a bit of a noob here)…what am I missing?
waves_01.ino: In function ‘void setup()’:

@Andrew_Banas I think you need the 2.1 version of the library: https://github.com/FastLED/FastLED/tree/FastLED2.1
Hi Andrew. You would need to upload your code (i.e. to http://pastebin.com) so we could see what you’ve got. I recommend starting out with the examples in the FastLED 2.1 library before continuing on. Also, FastLED 2.1 is not the main branch, but is available at https://github.com/FastLED/FastLED/tree/FastLED2.1. Make sure you’re using that.
Thanks I’ll double check I’m using 2.1 (thought I was). I’m able to get the basic examples to work…I’ll check and get back u. Appreciate the quick response!!!
Thanks guys! As mentioned I was not running 2.1 on this laptop (although I have it on another I was using over the weekend). …Multiple laptops…multiple library versions… First World Problems! Thanks again!
Not only that, but 2.1 changes (for the better) on a weekly basis. Oh, and I’m working on a major update to those demos. It revolves around making them more ‘loop’ and timed demo friendly.
Just wanted to say thank you. I just bought my first WS2811 string and these examples helped me get them up an running some nice patterns in a matter of minutes.
Thank you for this!
Suprisingly enough, I just made a little mod to the demos tonight. In the meantime, they now use FastLED 3.1.
