I want to create some ColorPalettes that run across the led stripe.
These ColorPalettes should contain colors of country flags.

My problem is that many flags are split in thirds (germany, italy, spain, france, ..).
But CRGBPalette16 cannot be evenly divided by 3.

I can live with that (or use CRGBPalette32 to increase the error), but maybe there is a better way. :)

btw, this reminded me of this great TED talk on city flags. (Totally non-LED related!)

I am starting to experiment with FastLED and some neat functions.

But I cannot find a detailed description/explanation of some (all?) functions.

Like "fadeToBlaclBy": http://fastled.io/docs/3.1/group___colorutils.html#ga404d163d8a422cee2df2baac4151ca98
I want to know what the last parameter (uint8_t fadeBy) actually does.

The same goes for "fill_rainbow":
http://fastled.io/docs/3.1/group___colorutils.html#gafcc7dac88e25736ebc49a9faf2a1c2e2
I have no idea what deltahue is doing.
I guess it widens and shortens the rainbow (distance between the colors).
But is increasing or decreasing the value making the red areas of the rainbow bigger?
I could "try and error" it or read the source code, but I hope there is a good documentation that I am missing. :)

Functions. void, fill_solid (struct CRGB *leds, int numToFill, const struct CRGB &color). fill_solid - fill a range of LEDs with a solid color Example: fill_solid( leds, NUM_LEDS, CRGB(50,0200));. void, fill_solid (struct CHSV *targetArray, int numToFill, const struct CHSV &hsvColor) ...

I am not sure if this is possible.
But I think it would be awsome to have a dedicated yatse watchface for Android war (m360).

Instead oft the rudimental wear notification a watchface could show many detailed information about the current playing media.
Such as time left, end time or a progress bar.

This is just an idea... 😉

Well this was in todo list but there's so many things in todo list that well it have near 0 chance to surface soon.

But I will extends Yatse API in future to allow more things done by others :)

I just installed JuiceSSH and tried to connect to my ubuntu server.
But the connection is closed right after the login was successful.

auth.log says:
Nov  2 19:12:14 htpc sshd[6803]: Accepted publickey for christoph from 192.168.1.57 port 43517 ssh2
Nov  2 19:12:14 htpc sshd[6803]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user christoph by (uid=0)
Nov  2 19:12:14 htpc sshd[6803]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user christoph

Since the privatekey (I also tried password) worked, I have no idea what causes this problem. :(

Never mind. It works now. Maybe a restart of the app was necessary.

Did you know you could turn on the bulb with bright white light in case of an emergency with a wall stwitch?

I added some suggestions, because I thought of this feature even before I backed LIFX at kickstarter. :)

It needs to be intuitive. Especially for people who don't know about smart bulbs.

Got an answer from support.
Better than I expected. :)

Hey Christoph,

Thanks so much for those awesome feature requests. Adding an advanced option for disabling White Restore is something we were already considering. The ability to add a custom White Restore is intriguing, I've passed your comments along to our Firmware team for consideration :)

I like the function EVERY_N_MILLISECONDS, but is there something like "EVERY_N_MILLISECONDS_PLUS_M"?

For example I want to execute A every 100ms.
And I want to execute B 50ms after A.

I know I could use delay(50) inside the EVERY_N_MILLISECONDS function.
Or I could define a helper variable and check milis() to program my own solution.

But maybe there is a smart way I don't know yet. :)

Otherwise I would suggest a feature requast for the next FastLED version.
Like an optional second parameter:
EVERY_N_MILLISECONDS(100, 50)

EVERY_N has some other interesting stuff you can do with it. Here's a rather random example file I made to test out some of it's options.
https://github.com/marmilicious/FastLED_examples/blob/master/every_n_timers.ino

And a second example that does something like what you asked about here, plus it has an example of using EVERY_N with a variable timer. To get "B" to execute at a specific time after "A" I am resetting a timer whenever "A" is run, and then checking if enough time has passed to before running "B".

Does or will the Nvidia Shield TV have all the features of the Chromecast 2?
Performance shouldn't be an issue, I guess.

How does your average day with the Moto360 look like?

+Jonathan Saad Its also strange that you are getting the same on the LGr as the Moto.
I'm getting 4.5% on the Moto and 3.5% on the LG.
On the Gear Live I'm getting 4%.

These figures have been consistent.

The real difference is that I have the screen always on on both the LGr and Gear Live. And I use a lot more apps on these. The Moto is always screen off and only use apps sparingly. If I try and use apps in the same way as on the others the Moto jumps to 6.5% pretty quickly.

New Update for the Android App.
I think the bulbs respond much faster.
Might be because of the new firmware, too.
