LED Strip light effects

Does anybody know about work done to control an RGB LED Strip with effects?
Like a Knight Rider (red bar bouncing from one end to the other) or a Progress Bar or any other?

How are you controlling your LED strip?

There are quite a few Arduino code Knight Rider examples on the web, you might be able to adapt their algorithm to suit your own setup.

If you have a Raspberry Pi, then you can control strips of Neopixels using Node-RED and

Making a Knight Rider effect is certainly possible but not done it myself

Alternative is to use the exec node to call say, a Python program, that already does effects

If you use an ESP32 to control the lights, then you can use the excellent WLED firmware to do all kinds of animations etc. Which can easily be controlled via a web interface OR via a node red dashboard.
