1. Install Arduino IDE software. Not the web one. https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

2. Install the NodeMCU software using the instructions on this page https://randomnerdtutorials.com/how-to-install-esp8266-board-arduino-ide/

3. Install the FASTLED library Arduino->sketch->include library->manage libraries Search for FASTLED and install

4. Download the arduino software for the fastled webserver https://github.com/jasoncoon/esp8266-fastled-webserver

  • Click clone or download and download the zip. Put this zip file on your desktop or in the documents folder
  • Right click to unzip the software

5. Navigate to the folder and run the esp8266-fastled-webserver.ino file

6. Edit this file above to be like this <source lang="cpp">

  1. include "FSBrowser.h"
  1. define DATA_PIN 5 //LVL1 change this! This is D5
  2. define LED_TYPE WS2811
  3. define COLOR_ORDER RGB
  4. define NUM_LEDS 30 //change this!
  1. define MILLI_AMPS 2000 // IMPORTANT: set the max milli-Amps of your power supply (4A = 4000mA)
  2. define FRAMES_PER_SECOND 120 // here you can control the speed. With the Access Point / Web Server the animations run a bit slower.

//LVL1 change this to true! const bool apMode = true;

//LVL1 Comment this secrets.h //#include "Secrets.h" // this file is intentionally not included in the sketch, so nobody accidentally commits their secret information. // create a Secrets.h file with the following:

// AP mode password //LVL1 uncomment this! const char WiFiAPPSK[] = "your-password";

// Wi-Fi network to connect to (if not in AP mode) //LVL1 uncomment this! char* ssid = "your-ssid"; char* password = "your-password";
