Hi there, I’m a new PB user after finally pulling out a V3 I ordered long ago.
I’m considering it for a large project with 2880 APA102s.
My piece will have knobs/buttons etc. that choose the pattern and modify its variables. Is there a way to have code inside a pattern that switches to a different pattern? Moreover, it would be helpful to have code that runs “globally” outside of any particular pattern that handles some input/output stuff. That would be the right place to put code that, say, changes the pattern based on the position of a rotary switch, or sets a PWM value for an indicator light. (Come to think of it, analogWrite() isn’t supported, is it??)
I understand I could do this with websockets, which would probably mean a second ESP32? Connected over wifi? It’s not a great solution. Even a wired serial interface to another microcontroller would be an improvement.
