Illuminate a Jack o'Lantern using LEDs and Raspberry Pi.


This is a project to light a Jack o'Lantern using LEDs controlled by a Raspberry Pi. The script randomly selects from a variety of lighting patterns. A motion sensor triggers a special sequence for visitors.


sudo ./ hh:mm

hh:mm is the duration in hours and minutes to run.

This program must be run as root in order to access the GPIO pins.
