I have an LED array and a program that I would like to release as open source. With this, I have 6 animation arrays that are displayed depending on a radio transmitters position using 0’s and 1’s to dictate what LEDs are on or off. All works just great.
The thing is, I want to give this project to my friends who are not computer literate but I also want to allow them to change the animations that will be displayed with ease.
Right now, I have all the animations programmed as arrays that are stored in a .h file but updating this file is far too scary for most people. It would be great if I could put all of the arrays in .txt files so that when they updated and saved the text file, the animation would change the next time it was turned on.
Is this possible? How could I make this easy for a “normal” user to update these arrays even if I have to use code to parse these into actual C++ arrays?
