Hi all –
I discovered the allpixel and bibliopixel last year when I was programming some chandeliers for a Burning Man project – ran into some issues as I’m a ruby and JS dev by day and learning my way around the python2 and python3 ecosystem was a bit daunting at first. Got it sorted though Didn’t use project files much, just programmed various animations by hand and actually triggered them from a ruby program based on various sensors, etc.
Did run into issues last year with documentation being pretty sparse or outdated with the switch from 2 to 3, and now it looks like there is so much development going on that the bibliopixel 3 documentation is becoming outdated in some places. I know you’re working towards bibliopixel 4, and I know open source project deadlines are /really/ hard to predict, but didn’t know if you had any idea when it was going to be out?
In the meantime, I was wondering if there was a good page anywhere that basically showed every single parameter that can go into a JSON project file, and what values it can take, and what the defaults are. For instance, how do I pass in colors as arguments to an animation I wrote? Can you run different animations at different FPS settings? Can you use a runner file that uses various interrupts to load different animations, etc. What does the “run” key do? What about the “typename” key?
I know documentation is hard, especially when you are writing lots of new exciting code, not upset at all. I can work things out as I go, but wondering what is out there?
Also sorry about the tagging, for some reason google won’t accept bibliopixel as a tag whether I click on it or enter it manually.
