NightDriverStrip is a source code package for building a flash program that you upload to the ESP32 microcontroller. It can drive up to 8 channels of WS2812B style LEDs connected to the chip pins and display fancy colors and patterns and designs on them. There are numerous effects built in that can be configured to be shown on the LED strip, including audio/music/beat-reactive effects for modules equipped with a microphone. It can also optionally receive color data for the LEDs in a simple LZ-compressed (or noncompressed) format over a TCP/IP socket that is opened by default on port 49152. The ESP32 keeps its clock in sync using NTP.



WLED: A fast and feature-rich implementation of an ESP8266/ESP32 webserver to control NeoPixel (WS2812B, WS2811, SK6812) LEDs or also SPI based chipsets like the WS2801 and APA102!

⚙️ Features
– WS2812FX library with more than 100 special effects
– FastLED noise effects and 50 palettes
– Modern UI with color, effect and segment controls
– Segments to set different effects and colors to user defined parts of the LED string
– Settings page – configuration via the network
– Access Point and station mode – automatic failsafe AP
– Up to 10 LED outputs per instance
– Support for RGBW strips
– Up to 250 user presets to save and load colors/effects easily, supports cycling through them.
– Presets can be used to automatically execute API calls
– Nightlight function (gradually dims down)
– Full OTA software updatability (HTTP + ArduinoOTA), password protectable
– Configurable analog clock (Cronixie, 7-segment and EleksTube IPS clock support via usermods)
– Configurable Auto Brightness limit for safe operation
– Filesystem-based config for easier backup of presets and settings


The MoBro Monitoring

The desktop application you can easily install on your windows machine. It displays all the necessary monitoring data like temperatures, loads and more.

The application is the core of our eco system and the raspberry connects to it to receive the data as well.

Update: [March 16th] I tried this by myself and got it working just fine on old Pi1 I had lying around and 3.2″ display. I do needed to use Pi3 to get it up and running but after that I just switched to Pi1 and it worked fine enough.

There are some things I would like to be changed. For example the network throughput is B/s which is not most usable in all cases.

DOWN stream would be better is in KB/s or MB/s

Rainmeter, desktop customization tool

Rainmeter, desktop customization tool

Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player – all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. Rainmeter is at once an application and a toolkit. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

Application you can’t live without if you listen Spotify on Windows.

Toastify adds some missing functionallity to the Spotify client(Windows only). It shows a popup, toast style, dialog on track change and it allows you to use global hot keys for Play/Pause, Next, Previous etc.

Arduino Based Camera

Arduino Based Camera

ArduCAM is a open source camera develop platform which is based on very popular Arduino boards. It will support most of the camera modules with sensors from Omnivisionand Aptina which is range from 0.3MegaPixel to 13MegaPixel. And we are planning to move on our platfrom to more powerful MCU based boards like MapleChipkit, RaspberryPi. It will make ease for everyone to use camera module and spark their ideas on image/video applications.
