    Default New to arduino

    Hi. I've been doing a display with older grinch hardware and I'm now wanting to start again with arduino and individual addresses led strips.

    Ive seen a series of videos where a node mcu is used.

    My questions are will node mcu work with vixen 3?
    Will I need an arduino board or is the node mcu actually an arduino?

    I'm looking forward to getting into this.

    Cheers
    Duane

    A nodemcu is arduino compatible programming. But since it ESP based, you should look at ESPixelStick software (https://github.com/forkineye/ESPixelStick). So long as you use e1.31 you can use Vixen and the nodemcu together. You cobble together other protocols but no need.

    Also there are other projects based on the nodemcu. I think someone did a multi output controller based on nodemcu but I can't find it right now.
