Hello all!
I just want to clarify on what would be the best method to control a SK6812 RGBW strip on a ESP12F. Would the preferred method be DMA or UART? Also, I would like to have a single WS2812b directly bitbanged as status led. Any GPIO pin should then be okay for the single pixel right?

@ashthespy Either DMA or UART will work great. By default on Esp8266 DMA is used with the normal declaration like NeoPixelBus<NeoGrbFeature, Neo800KbpsMethod> strip(16);.
A single pixel should be ok using the BitBang method. Declared like NeoPixelBus<NeoGrbFeature, NeoEsp8266BitBang800KbpsMethod> strip(16, 4);

@Makuna Thanks for the quick response! I shall go ahead with my Pcb design then!
