    The firmware is here: https://github.com/forkineye/ESPixelStick

    Read through the README.md dont skim like I did. There is a part (gulp) that requires java to 'zip' up the web site information. I just did that part in linux and then copied the files into the data/www folder in the ESPixelStick folder.

    Install the prerequisites in README.md

    Pay careful attention to the Arduino for ESP8288 version (2.40-rc1). You will have to choose this branch for download.

    My short and dirty TL;DR and things I missed:

    Modify ssid and passphrase at the top of ESPixelStick.ino

    Under Tools:
    Choose your board as Generic ESP8266 Module
    Flash Size should be 1M (128K SPIFFS)
    CPU Frequency 160 MHz
    Upload Speed 115200

    Power the unit with the button pressed

    Upload the firmware

    Remove power from the unit and replug again with the button pressed.

    Go to Tools and then ESP8266 Sketch data upload (serial monitor has to be closed for this)

    I posted this under vixen but just in case, I'll do it here. I'm noticing a 400ms delay from when vixen tells the lights to do something and they respond. This makes sequencing to music impossible. I have faces using a renard and the espixel in serial mode and they are working great. Is this just expected behaviour with GECE? I have not seen anything about the delay in the forums and I dont remember it from last year. Only change from last year was the newer firmware and the newer version of Vixen. I downgrade vixen and the issue remained. I haven't tried loading 2.0 on a controller yet and see if that's it. Any other suggestions?
