yeah that shows two tasks toggling each other, I am unsure exactly what you are looking for, but its a simple enough example to build from.

Im looking to add some blinkiness to the animations :) for example that it also blinks while changing color. Is it possible with these two libs? :)

@Makuna sorry I've abandoned this. Really really sorry. The board ist the https://www.olimex.com/Products/IoT/MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-DEV/open-source-hardware - In the mean time I've switched to the Adafruit Huzzah which worked out of the box.

@codmpm Are you saying you are still having issues or that you lost patience with that board and moved on ;-)
@marksev1 If you think "modify animation" then stick with the animation system, if you think "modify state of sketch" then the task is the better choice.
I am still unsure of what you mean by "some blinky-ness". Do you mean "sparkle"? Either way, in your animation update, just "randomly" do something different for some pixels, like show black.

@Makuna, I still use that board but not togehter with NeoPixelBus. So I've obviously lost patience ;) When my side project NeoPixel on ESP works I will test it again on the Olimex board.
