BMP supports RLE also, and embedded PNG, embedded JPG, and all sorts of bit pattern formats; but for some reason its hard to find any apps that actually write those formats anymore.
I wonder at some point will it be better for advanced raster users to switch to some standard "effects" format, I thought I remember one a few years back when looking into christmas tree lighting.

@Makuna is there any possibility your lib might work on ATTINY85? even just a small number of pixels?

It compiles.... ordered some to see if it works... planning to make a smart lightbulb, for camper van... so don't want to go and put an ESP in there... bit overkill to have one of those per bulb...

@sticilface It uses less memory and less code flash than any other NeoPixel library, so it really depends on how much RAM and Flash the uC has. The Arduino Gemma uses this same uC and it works with it just fine. I use it as an example for my memory tests here

thats good to know... unfortunately.. to actually control it... i.e. use PJON which is what I'm planning to do.. results in sketch being too big... never mind... i'll just use an actual ATMEGA328P-PU instead in my design
