2016/11/26 : # 101. [Arduino] – Lifx API Control Library for ESP8266


I’ve started work on a library for the esp8266 in order to control lifx bulbs via the HTTP API. You can follow it’s progress here:

As of right now, it can only query the status of the bulbs, and find things like is it on or off/color/name that sort of thing.

It can query the status of the bulb to find things like color/brightness/hue, as well as toggle the power.

Updated post about what I’ve since added here: http://www.joeybabcock.me/blog/arduino/arduino-esp8266-lifx-library-update-change-color-and-brightness-of-bulbs/

2016/11/18 : # 100. [Music] – Waterflame – Arcade Punk Midi Synthesia Piano

This one has been in the works since right when the song came out. I’ve been working on it since then.

I also set up my launchpad to mirror Synthesia’s notes.

The esp serves up a web page that can be used to control your sonos from anything that can support a browser. It’s a work in progress, and I’ll keep updating as I see fit.

2x MAX7219 based 8×8 red LED matrices
