So, I think for testing on the ESP is maybe good to do with bitbang method as the serial is often needed for debugging. When project is developped better, then change to dma.

Serial output or actual debugger? Serial output works fine with dma.
On 12e that is.

Ah, I can use both? Serial output and dma for the led stripe?

Yes, I do it without a problem. Even the uart version uses a different uart than default serial

Cool. I thought I can use one pin always for one purpose.

Serial output and programming are on txdo,rxd0, dma uses txd1
Sorry, dma uses rxdo, but it's used for output by neopixelbus, so it hasn't been a problem.
It's the uart version that uses txd1, so no problem there also.

(Had to pull out my cheat sheet, so many pin mappings)
