Code

ESP8266 FastLED desk light

The software runs on the ESP8266. The web app is stored in SPIFFS (on-board flash memory). I've forked jasoncoon's esp8266 fastled webserver and added some extra functionality, made a proper config area and created custom patterns for the lamp. The software and detailed setup instructions can be found on GitHub. For beginners I would recommend watching this setup tutorial.
