So i'm making a wordclock. I've got my WS2812 LEDs all wired up and working happily to tell the time
The issue is that I want certain LEDs (by position in a single strip) to have a 'rainbow' effect like the Neopixels examples have.
I'm struggling to code in such a way to show the rainbow effect on some LEDs only, while leaving the other static LEDs untouched. I don't seem to be able to do it by defining both 'pixels' and 'strip' and then trying to light the rainbow ones only - the Strip seems to override the Pixel commands used for displaying the time,
Question is: is there a way of showing a rainbow of a certain range of neopixels within a strip without upsetting the static pixels of the rest of the strip?
Or do i need to wire it as two 'items' - a time telling strip and a strip to show rainbows on?
Cheers - Code below as it currently works, without trying to integrate a rainbow section
