Reminders for using WS281x’s with the ESP-8266: Library: NeoPixelBus and wire them to the RX pin.  This lib works with Arduino IDE + ESP Board version 2.3.0 The pinout for the 5mm single pixels is here. They use Rgb instead of Grb!!! NeoPixelBus<NeoRgbFeature, NeoWs2813Method> strip(PixelCount,NEO_PIN); A large differential between output signal and Vcc won’t work for the 5mm […]

Grab this and restart the Arduino environment: SPIFFS + […]
