CircuitPython library for WS2801 LEDs.
Higher level WS2801 driver that presents the LED string as a sequence. It is the same api as the NeoPixel library.
Colors are stored as tuples by default. However, you can also use int hex syntax to set values similar to colors on the web. For example, 0x800000 (#800000 on the web) is equivalent to (0x80, 0, 0).
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
import board import adafruit_ws2801 leds = adafruit_ws2801.WS2801(board.D2, board.D0, 25) leds.fill((0x80, 0, 0))

Zip release files
To build this library locally you’ll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install circuitpython-build-tools
Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:
Then run the build:
circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-ws2801 --library_location .
Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme
Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:
cd docs sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html
This will output the documentation to docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to locally verify it will pass.
