Port of the SmartMatrix Library to the Particle Photon with support for driving APA102 LEDs (only).

How to compile using Particle Build:

  • Import SmartMatrix-Photon-APA102

    • In Libraries View, press "Contribute Library"
    • pixelmatix/SmartMatrix-Photon-APA102
    • "Add Library"
    • "Import"
  • Import FastLED with SmartMatrix Fix

    • This is needed as the FastLED library currently on Particle Build is 3.0, not the latest 3.1 that has a one-line fix for SmartMatrix3 compatibility. You need to add this renamed fork of FastLED with the one-line fix as a workaround for now
    • In Libraries View, press "Contribute Library"
    • pixelmatix/FastLED-Sparkcore
    • "Add Library"
    • "Import"
  • Compile an Example

    • In Libraries - choose "SmartMatrix3_Photon_Apa102"
    • Select one of the examples ending in .INO at the top of the list
    • "Use This Example"
    • With Example example selected from the "Code" View,
    • Change to Libraries View - choose "FastLEDSmartMatrix"
    • Scroll down, "Include In App"
    • Select one of the examples
    • "Add to this App"
    • Delete the first #include that was put there automatically by the IDE (the FastLED include needs to be after the SmartMatrix include)

Known Issues:

matrix.setBrightness() breaks if value is below 8 matrix.setRefreshRate() must be called before matrix.begin(), or it has no effect
