Help a Noob

Hello all!

I have never used Arduino!

I'd like to create a board to control a string of RGB LED's (WS2812)
what i'm ultimately looking for is a box with a dial or switch to select different colours.

Is this possible, and is there a kit available or a list of components?

Thanks in advance James

I use the FastLED library, and it is very good.

Are you wanting to set one color for all the LEDs in your strip?
If so, you would need some way to set values from 0 to 254(?) for the red, green, blue LEDs.

Is this possible,

Yes.

is there a kit available or a list of components?

No.

You have to look at the examples and work it out yourself. It is not hard, there are examples for setting the strips to a colour and there examples about reading a pot. You have to put them together. That is what learning is all about.
