LEDBorg - Examples - LEDPulse

Posted by in Build, LEDBorg - Build on October 17, 2017 . 0 Comments.



This example takes the getting started - lesson 5 script and adds a new dimension to the colour changing, brightness.
The new script pulses the LedBorg brightness between hue changes, giving a more complex colour sequence which shows how flexible LedBorg can be.

You can download the code directly to your Raspberry Pi using:
cd ~/ledborg
wget -O LedPulse.py https://piborg.org/downloads/LedPulse.py.txt
Or save the text file from the link on your Raspberry Pi as LedPulse.py

Make the script executable using
chmod +x LedPulse.py
and run using
sudo ./LedPulse.py

To stop the script press CTRL+C.
