How BiblioPixel works

Tom Swirly edited this page Apr 5, 2018 · 9 revisions

BiblioPixel has three key data structures: Driver, Layout and Animation.

  • A Driver communicates with the actual lights or software visualizations.

  • A Layout represents the geometry of those lights.

  • And an Animation controls how those lights' values change over time.

A BiblioPixel program has exactly one Driver, one LED, and one top-level Animation - though that Animation may be composed of many other lower-level Animations.

The BiblioPixel system has drivers for all popular LED strip types, including RGB and mono strips, but also for raw serial port drivers, Philips Hue lights. For all your prototyping and entertainment needs, BiblioPixel comes with a virtual driver named SimPixel - a fast, customizable WebGL visualizer that runs immediately in the browser without any plug-in or installation step.
