Bug me over the internet by tweeting @cheerlights with a colour, like blue! for example, and flash LEDs on my desk at me
Some green perchance @cheerlights
Time for a bit of blue methinks @cheerlights
Do you still support warmwhite @cheerlights ?
Can we have some red now please @cheerlights
I’m trying to do a new project associated with the CheerLights project every year, and this time, I’m using a Raspberry Pi to pull the last set of colours from the ioBridge server.
I’ll be putting a full write-up about the project itself up on here soon, but I’m still waiting for a few parts for it to be complete, but the bash one-liner is handy in and of itself, so I’ll put it here for now, in case there are others who want to start a CheerLights-based thing this year.
curl http://api.thingspeak.com/channels/1417/feed.json | jshon -e feeds -a -e field1 -u
This handy one-liner returns a nice list of the last 25 colours set by the API.
