Hey guys,

I have a few question on the state of ESP32 and FastLED. If I recall correctly the ESP32 is supported since v3.1?

I’m thinking about using an ESP32 to set up a small display based on 4 matrices with 8x8 WS281x LEDs.

What would be the best way to do so? Does the standard library support parallel output on an ESP32 too? Does it make sense to split the output so each matrix gets its own pin? Does Wifi work while controlling the LEDs?

What else do I have to watch out for?

Hi! Parallel output by default in FastLED 3.2. You can use 4 parallel outputs for your project and get high FPS. You can also use a WiFi connection, for example, for managing the ArtNet protocol.
