Accessing the Kite’s neopixels from Python
The kite on the Badge is fitted with 5 neopixels (individually controllable RGB LEDs). They are accessed through the neopixel module.
Here’s an example how to control the LEDs:
# imports from machine import Pin from neopixel import NeoPixel # Pin 19 controls the power supply to SD card and neopixels powerPin = Pin(19, Pin.OUT) # Pin 5 is the LED's data line dataPin = Pin(5, Pin.OUT) # create a neopixel object for 5 pixels np = NeoPixel(dataPin, 5) # turn on power to the LEDs powerPin.on() # set some colors for the pixels (RGB) np = (255,0,0) np = (0,255,0) np = (0,0,255) np = (255,255,0) np = (255,0,255) # send colors out to LEDs np.write()
