Here is a simple little electric skateboard dual Led strip with webpage controls for you to have a go at building yourself. to add some custom bling for when your racing around at night.
Once turned on all you have to do is connect to the wireless access point this device creates. Then through any web browser type the I.P address
to get to the control page
Getting set up to code one of these microcontrollers can seem very overwhelming. But don’t let that stop you giving it a go and if your douting yourself Don’t, just say to yourself.
” If the person writing this can do it so can I”
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, Here is all the information you’ll need to know. To set up your PC with the Arduino IDE for coding the d1 mini.
First download and install the Arduino IDE: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
Then download extract and install the CH340 Drivers: https://docs.wemos.cc/en/latest/ch340…
Then open the IDE, go to File – Preferences and under the box marked “Additional Board Manager URLs” paste the .json link found here: https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino#in…
Or copy and paste below
Because we are playing With WS2812/WS2812B LED we also need to install what is called a library into the Arduino IDE. Basically a library is just a folder of pre-written code installed in the right place for Arduino IDE. It is a very simple task to add the needed library we are looking for.
In this video you will find an easy to follow explanation on how to install the correct library we are looking for.
#define APSSID “Esk8 Lighting”
#define APPSK “Esk8n4Say10”
If you want to change the name and password of the access point the “APSSID” is the name and the “APPSK” is the password which can be found starting at line 7
If you want to change the number of LEDs in each strip what you need to edit is on line 15. But we wouldn’t recommend going more than 30 LED per strip. Simply because we are power the LED directly from the D1 mini.
#define LED_COUNT1 15
#define LED_COUNT2 15
setColor1 = 225;
setColor2 = 225;
setColor3 = 225;
If you want to change the start color in the code starting at line 266 you will find “setColor1, setColor2, setColor3”.
Change the values to suit what color you want the LED to start on
MDNS.addService(“http”, “tcp”, 80);
