P141 RGB Strip Plugin

#1 Post by soif » 27 Feb 2018, 04:25

I've just released a new ESPEasy RGB Strip Plugin including RGB+HSV commands and animation modes.

It uses the excellent FastLed library, that provide smooth dimming, HSV colors and pave the way to support pixel type led strips.


Features :
- Controls basic RGB Led Strips
- [TODO] Controls basic RGBW(W) Led Strips
- [TODO] Controls various "Pixels" Led Strips
- RGB or HSV commands
- Various Animations mode
- [TODO] Supports Infra-Red Remotes
- Smooth Diming (thanks to FastLED lib)
- Rainbow color map (thanks to FastLED lib)


List of commands :
- ON
- OFF
- RGB,<red 0-255>,<green 0-255>,<blue 0-255>
- HSV,<hue 0-255>,<saturation 0-255>,<value/brightness 0-255>
- HUE,<hue 0-255>
- SAT,<saturation 0-255>
- VAL,<value/brightness 0-255>
- DIM,<value/brightness 0-255>
- H_RGB,<RGB HEX COLOR > ie FF0000 for red
- H_HSV,<HSV HEX COLOR > ie 00FFFF for red
- SPEED,<0-65535> Fast to slow
- MODE,<mode 0-6>,<Speed 1-65535>
Available Modes:
  • 0 : OFF
  • 1 : ON
  • 2 : Flash
  • 3 : Strobe
  • 4 : Fade
  • 5 : Smooth
  • 6 : Party

Command Examples :
- /control?cmd=ON .................Turn Leds On
- /control?cmd=OFF .................Turn Leds Off
- /control?cmd=RGB,255,0,0 .......Set Leds to Red
- /control?cmd=HSV,0,255,255 .....Set Leds to Red
- /control?cmd=Mode,2 ..............Animate Leds in "Flash" mode
- /control?cmd=Mode,5,400 .........Animate Leds in "Smooth" mode, with a speed of 400


Recommended Hardware :
It works out of the box on theses very cheap hackable chinese devices :
Please test it and report feedback here.

Enjoy ;)

Looks cool!! Just ordered a controller. Will it be possible for you to create bin files with this plugin? Still haven't been able to figure out compiling my own. :oops:

Hi Soif,

Thanks for your efforts and sharing the project!

I did try to compile and i do have some issues here.

Can you please suply some more info on espeasy version?
I do have all kind of not declared errors like :

C:\Users\robin\Documents\Arduino\src\ESPEasy\_P141_LedStrip.ino: In function 'boolean Plugin_141(byte, EventStruct*, String&)':
_P141_LedStrip:332: error: 'addFormSelector' was not declared in this scope
addFormSelector(string, F("LedStrip Type"), PLUGIN_141_CONF_0, i , options, optionValues, NULL ,type, true );


I did add the recommended fastled lib, added the include in espeasy.ino etc...
Should i declare all missing by hand or is there some other pointer you could think of ?

I developed it using the v2.0 dev branch

BTW built it using platform IO . I didn't tested compilation with Arduino Ide, which often it a bit messy when building.

When compiling with the Arduino IDE 1.8.5, the following errors appear:

_P141_LedStrip:719: error: 'CRGB' does not name a type
void Fp141_OutputRGB( const CRGB& rgb){
^
_P141_LedStrip:719: error: ISO C++ forbids declaration of 'rgb' with no type [-fpermissive]
void Fp141_OutputRGB( const CRGB& rgb){
^
_P141_LedStrip:741: error: variable or field 'Fp141_OutputHSV' declared void
void Fp141_OutputHSV(CHSV hsv){

_P141_LedStrip:760: error: 'CHSV' does not name a type

and so on

Again I did not tested with Arduino IDE, but what you are describing looks like the FastLed library is not included !

There are a little bit efforts to spend to learn Platform I/O : When starting, it looks like a 747 cockpit, but once used to it you will soon definitively forget the Arduino IDE :mrgreen:

Platform I/o allows you to :
- automatically load missing libraries
- put libraries in a big shared folder (as Arduino IDE) AND/OR in a per project lib folder
- offers a serious and convenient build in editor
- define different environments presets to build (and for exmple pass some -D debug arguments)
- does not force you to a NAME/NAME.ino file structure only
- even integrate git
- completely script the build and or the upload to your ESPs (see my EspBuddy baby in my signature)
- and Last but not least : DO NOT INTERNALLY REORDER YOUR CODE when you are building (which often lead to extremely weird and incomprehensible build errors in the Arduino IDE)
- etc......

I think Platform I/o looks very confusing.

A plugin should also work under Arduino.

I totally agree with you, but this is just a matter of having spent a few hours to be used with it.

Yes in an ideal and wonderful world:
- war should not exist,
- and I should be PAID to write code and provide support to other absolutely ungrateful people :shock:

Problem with the Arduino IDE is that it is quite some work to get all the libraries to the desired version and even then..
Did you try to create a portable install like I suggested earlier (was this thread???) with the libs dir from the ESPeasy sources in the lib dir of the portable install?
That way you'll have all the libraries at hand like they should work. All except for a very few like the Arduino ESP8266 core lib.
That one should you install in Arduino IDE and absolutely make sure you're using version 2.3.0.

lol, well i did flight sims in the early days!

I am digging in as i want to compile my own firmware, and you are right it compiles fine on platform i/o but some how the other plugins i use don't
But that's part of the hobby i guess :D

I am doing 2 ways in... http domoticz and mqtt node-red, There for i use the lights and the mi-light plugins. Kind of exotic way of control.

Still did not manage to upload my firmware ota, so it might be i am having 512kb versions or struggle with some other issues. Just have read some more on how to do 1024 64k spiffs.


Mean while it did compile on the arduino 1.8.5 with 2.3 esp8266

Fastled related warning from the compiler are normal, and can be ignored.

Sounds like it has finally compiled fine.

BTW OTA on 1Mb board need to be done in 2 steps, with an intermediate firmware. see the wiki about that. 8-)

You're welcome 8-)

As I would like to submit it as a testing plugin to the EspEasy main repo, I would be happy to get some feedback of people having success or bugs.

Hmmz, issue found.... even after uploading thru serial it did not work.
Seems 128k is the size for my 1024mb version.

So it does compile fine on the arduino ide 1.8.5 as long you use the 2.0 version of espeasy. I did clean my libs and espeasy folder and copied the supplied ( esp easy v2) ones before i did compile.
and did run it on the 2.3 version of the esp lib

I am familiar with the fastled errors as i had 8 esp's driving my led matrix on the fastled lib.
thx for the pointers and support ! ill report back after integrating.

1st expierences :
RGB works nice sofar, only got a issue(?) with setting the white light as in RGBW(W)
off seems to set the rgb channels to 0 but does not set the white channel(s) to 0

I got your plugin working allong with the _105 RGBW and _123 Lights plugin, there also seems to be some kind of cross talk between the Lights plugin and yours
as when i give a rgb command as issued in your doc, the light plugin reports back the status in http.


Cheers,
Robin

Happy to learn it... 8-) :roll:
RGB works nice sofar, only got a issue(?) with setting the white light as in RGBW(W)
As stated in the plugin comments, W(W) channels (while they are reserved) are not already coded, because FastLed does not currently implement it, and because i have NO RGBWW strip to make tests, but I would welcome a PR of someone willing to add the code to support it correctly.

I got your plugin working allong with the _105 RGBW and _123 Lights plugin, there also seems to be some kind of cross talk between the Lights plugin and yours
It is not supposed to work with other ESPEasy PLayground lights plugins, especially if they use the SAME web commands : When any those plugins would be added to the official ESPEasy repo, the maintainers would have to tell each plugins author what command naming convention to use, in order to avoid conflicts.
But after looking at the source code of the 105 and 123 plugins, i don't even see any common Web commands, :shock:

Well i am digging into your plugin just to understand what and how its working. Some how when the esp64 gets released i might write my own code :D .
I did understand it as rgbw(w) and not as rgbw, but that's the way you read it i guess.

The code is very clear written, at least for me as a non programmer.
I did find that you only push rgb values in the code so i did learn something in the end.

I did a quick test in node red with the ui components, and h_rgb, connected all values to a slider and that worked fine.
not sure if all are needed, but dont we all love options.

Funny thing is it does not give me this reply all the time, and for sure its the light plugin ( based on return values ).

But on

http://192.168.1.198/control?cmd=off

i get this reply, funny enough not all the time. But that is just for the record, nothing important.
I do understand that its not common to use all these espeasy led plugins at once, but i love to push things to their limits.
Besides a few small issues it works pretty good.

I do believe each plugin should make his own specific command clearly understandable... In this case "ON" or "OFF" are not clear to which plugin they are sent to and other developpers can easily use the same for complete different purpouses.
You are right there's no "command naming convention" but I then would propose to have all commands of a pluing having specific prefix (e.g. for my 7-digits display all commands are "7dXXX" - infact I do have "7don" and "7doff" to turn on/off the 7 digit display)

I think this should be a espeasy issue...

As a plugin could be used twice on a esp. Like neopixel strips and 12v leds on one h801
Best would be like to address them on Task#.

Something like http://192.168.1.109/control?cmd1=Mode,4,400

where cmd1 - cmd12 is one of the task# in the devices list, but thats just my 2 cents.

That's already the convention for addressing the sensor values (e.g. [bedroom#temp] )

At first I just don't clearly understand why such rgbW or (even rgbWW strip exists ? Is this just to have deeper whites (cold or warm?).

Is it just something like :

Code: Select all

if Requested_RGB_color==FF.FF.FF then RGBWW_Output=00.00.00.FF.FF

I absolutely agree with you, but without any command naming guidelines, and being at this stage only in the Playground repo, I've just named it as simple as possible. Onces told exactly how to name it, modifying the command names in the codes will be a matter of minutes if not seconds. :)

Instead of task number he means task name, like its used for rules and mqtt... i guess to be strict.

I use it for normal lighting or "party" lighting myself. So its not that its used to mix them but just to have a choice between a or b or mix a and b.
i know people that drive 5 white led stripes on a h801. Just because its possible and damned cheap.

As designer i do a lot of things with color, and i must say pastel a like colors look better with white mixed in and like my hue lamps the choice between warm and cold white is very nice to have....
But most of all, i dont see much color balanced rgb leds that do give a proper white light.

But thanks for the pointer, i will have another look....

I think this should be a espeasy issue...

As a plugin could be used twice on a esp. Like neopixel strips and 12v leds on one h801
Best would be like to address them on Task#.

Something like http://192.168.1.109/control?cmd1=Mode,4,400

where cmd1 - cmd12 is one of the task# in the devices list, but thats just my 2 cents.
I don't think is is the right approach and neither easy to implement due to the current structure of plugin calls...

Well this might be a dirty solution then.

http://192.168.1.109/control?cmd=1Mode,4,400

:shock:

Nah just kidding,
But it might be something for future releases to fix this on espeasy level. As with more gpio's on the horizon, people will have more device connected and commands could easy overlap.

Ill pwm my white channels till i found some time and knowledge to change the code.
It's not a issue.

Hi,

just a question to that plugin: Does it send the values for example HSV automatically to the defined controller on value change?

Thanks for the response.

Not automatically, but HSV value are saved in the corresponding variables, so a simple rule, could do the job easily.

just found your code and the idea is nice.

still have to test it but i already came up with an brigtness + / - command sample:

Command Examples :
- /control?cmd=dim_up
Steps brightness + 10
- /control?cmd=dim_up,x
Steps brightness + x
- /control?cmd=dim_up,3
Steps brightness + 3

Code: Select all

      //Brightness +
if (command == F("dim_up"))	{
	int dimstep = event->Par1 ? event->Par1 : 10 ;
        v_p141_cur_color.v 	= v_p141_cur_color.v + dimstep ;	 //Value/Brightness
        if(v_p141_cur_color.v > 100){
		v_p141_cur_color.v 	= 100;
	}
	else if(v_p141_cur_color.v < 0){
		v_p141_cur_color.v 	= 0;
	}
	Fp141_SetCurrentColor(v_p141_cur_color);
	Fp141_OutputCurrentColor();
}
      
      //Brightness -
if (command == F("dim_down"))	{
	int dimstep = event->Par1 ? event->Par1 : 10 ;
        v_p141_cur_color.v 	= v_p141_cur_color.v - dimstep ;	 //Value/Brightness
        if(v_p141_cur_color.v > 100){
		v_p141_cur_color.v 	= 100;
	}
	else if(v_p141_cur_color.v < 0){
		v_p141_cur_color.v 	= 0;
	}
	Fp141_SetCurrentColor(v_p141_cur_color);
	Fp141_OutputCurrentColor();
}
be aware this code is untested. i have to start with platformIO

im interested in fade/transition to ON and fade/transition to OFF and maybe there is a quick addition of controlling setting fade/transition for CW/WW single PWM/color led strip.
And i just recieved an Arilux / magic home with IR.

if i'll get it working i'll make an OpenHAB2 config example with the use of MQTT

Hello Soif. Is there any chance you could make a bin file with this plugin available? I have the H801 controller. My compile skills are still not quite ready for primetime. :oops:
Would really like to try this. Thanks in advance.

Hi Soif,
I'd like to use and compile the plugin with a current version of ESPEasy and I'm getting a lot of errors similar to the one noted above. Is it possible that you correct the plugin? I'm compiling it with your EspBuddy.

This would be really great.

Thanks ver much

Hi Soif,

I have successful compile your code with platformIO and espeasy 2.0, but i 'm new to this and i have simple ( maybe stupid sorry) questions :

- I have magichome with ESP8285MOD, coud i use with this version ?

- If yes i have issue with compilation size for ESP8285 (Error: The program size (478829 bytes) is greater than maximum allowed (434160 bytes)),

do you have a solution for that ?

Regards

Hi soif,
I was able to compile the plugin with the current version and posted a pull request. Nevertheless it turns out that your plugin somehow disables the rules functions TaskValSet and Publish <topic>, <value>. Is it possible for you to have a look on this? I like the plugin but these issues make it a no-go.

And btw, it would be very cool if the plugin could support transition fading e.g. when changing colors.

Thanks

Hi. There's a pending pull request in the Github repo (Commit #13ab228). Does it compile if you use this version of the plugin?

So I must've been using some earlier commit. Now with this one I don't get error related to 'addFormSelector' and other like that.
There are only left those errors:

I can get rid of those errors just by commenting out any occurrence of sws_isr in ESPeasySoftwareSerial.cpp, but that's just workaround, not a solution.

Hi, i tried to compile the p141 plugin under actual mega branch and get a lot of errors.

Does this plugin work for the actual Mega branch or do i have to use an older version?

I don't see anything related to SoftwareSerial in the code of P141.
But it is including Fastled.h, so maybe that one is trying to assign some interrupt triggers to some pins.
This may cause issues. I guess.
These function call SoftwareSerial instead of ESPEasySoftwareSerial: https://github.com/letscontrolit/ESPEas ... wareSerial
Have you added other files, other than the P141 file?

I only added p141 and the fastled lib. It works if i comment out sws_isr_0() like mentioned by johny Mielony. BUT now i am not able to send a pwm command to a specified pin. My problem is that i am using a rgb-W power led and am not able to set white to a value. Only RGB through p141 is working. Is there a way to change white whithin the plugin? I set the led strip type to rgbw and mapped white1 to pin5 but i can´t see a command to switch white on.

BTW the plugin is awesome!

Re: P141 RGB Strip Plugin

Would it be possible to add a command to the plugin just to set a value for white? Something like this maybe:

Code: Select all

			if (command == F("w1"))	{
				analogWrite(v_p141_pins[3], v_p141_pin_inverse ? (PWMRANGE - event->Par1)  : event->Par1);
			}
I´m not familiar with C so i don´t know how to add another command.

How funny, the code i posted above is working :) Now i can control the white channel with mqtt command w1,255

I also added this line to void Fp141_CommandOff(){ function to ensure everything is off after command receives.

Code: Select all

analogWrite(v_p141_pins[3], v_p141_pin_inverse ? (PWMRANGE - 0)  : 0);
I know this is not intended by the plugin author but until the white channel is added it is useful for me and maybe an other.

hi,

first of all, thx to the author for coding this plugin... I think it would be huge improvment for the whole project.

But I was not able to compile it successfully... got the following errors (compiled with platform IO):

seems like there is still this problem with "sws_isr_0()"... but how to solve it?

when could we see this plugin in the "official" dev branch?

any help would be great!

thx

With the sws_isr commented in ESPeasySoftwareSerial.cpp I got it compiled and running. It is a very nice full featured RGB control. One thing that I am missing is the option to select a color and fade it in during a selectable time. This option is available in the lights plugin (https://github.com/ddtlabs/ESPEasy-Plugin-Lights), this one has not seen an update in the last 2 years so I am not sure if it would compile well with the latest version.
