FASTLED has been updated and works with Arduino 1.6.5

For those of you who are interested in using the latest Arduino IDE, there is an updated FastLED 3.1 available:

Probably time to update the BlinkinLabs website's links. ;-)


  • Ah, thanks for the heads up. We've been using 3.0 with arduino 1.6.3, since it seemed to be stable enough for building.
  • i installed what driver selection do I want to use for the 3535 size blinkytape leds?

  • doesnt work // FastLED.addLeds<NEOPIXEL, DATA_PIN>(leds, NUM_LEDS);

  • Which version of FastLED and Arduino are you using? The LEDs on that tape have SK6812 driver chips, which should work with the NEOPIXEL or WS2812 outputs on FastLED.
