With Sparkled, you get an integrated solution containing:
- A rich web interface for staging, sequencing, previewing and scheduling music-backed LED animations
- A fast UDP service to stream rendered pixel data to Sparkled clients, which use the data to drive LED strips (or whatever you want!)
Sparkled clients are responsible for rendered pixel data from the Sparkled server and displaying it on the LED strips. The official Sparkled clients are listed below:
- sparkled-client-esp (ESP32 and ESP8266)
- Add more effect types
- Multithreaded rendering
- Support sequences without music (currently requires a mute MP3 file to be uploaded)
- Ability to replace MP3 files for existing sequences (even with different lengths)
Sparkled is currently in pre-alpha, so significant chunks of core functionality are still missing or incomplete.
These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine.
The following software and hardware requirements must be met before installing the Sparkled server:
- Java 11 or later
- Gradle 7 or later (or use
- A modern web browser
Fork and clone the repository
SSH: git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:<your_username>/sparkled.git HTTPS: git clone https://github.com/<your_username>/sparkled.git
Build the project
Note: the initial build will take quite a while, as all of the dependencies need to be downloaded
cd sparkled ./gradlew clean copyWebUi shadowJar
cd build/libs java -jar sparkled-0.0.1-all.jar
Wait for the application to start, then connect to the UI in Chrome via the following URL:
gradle to run the backend unit tests:
cd sparkled ./gradlew test
npm to run the frontend unit tests:
cd sparkled/webui npm run test
