QuinLED-Dig-Uno: WLED Tutorial
Recently new control software for the ESP8266 and the ESP32 has started to become more popular, it’s called WLED and turns your QuinLED-Dig-Uno into an addressable LED controller that can be easily controlled from an app on your phone. This article will be about installing it and doing some basic configuration.
Since this mainly involves using a phone app I decided creating a video guide for it would be easiest to follow, below the video I’ll have some links to things mentioned in the video including a custom binary for running WLED with an ESP32 on the QuinLED-Dig-Uno.

ESP32 special instructions
When using the ESP32 on the QuinLED-Dig-Uno you need to make sure to be adressing GPIO16, not GPIO2 (problem with trying to use several controllers on one board). Aircoookie has started making builds available which use the GPIO16 pin for the ESP32 which is needed for the ESP32.

If you are new to DIY and building projects yourself, this might be a great project to start with. The QuinLED-Dig-Uno was developed with starting DIY people in mind, making sure soldering the board is as easy as possible.
