So I have been playing around with these I2C 8x8 Matrices I Purchased from Ebay, and I was curious if FastLED would work with them. I know that Adafruit has a library for them but it is very small and doesn’t give much notes for what the code actually does (FastLED usually does this very well) I added a photo of the Matrix below! Thanks for your help!

Do you know the specs of the matrix? The LED matrices I’ve seen on Adafruit have been RG rather than RGB. If you can find the datasheet for the matrix, it will tell you what format it expects.

These are just red LEDs. They are just a single color.

It’s based on HT16K33: https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/datasheets/ht16K33v110.pdf
I’m quite sure, it’s nothing FastLED is responsible for.
