Hi! thanks fadecandy is awesome!

@scanlime Thanks for the info. I imagine it's quite a task to keep it neat and tidy with RGBW in terms of data/firmware/backwards compatibility, etc.
@nkint not directly: NeoPixel LEDs only, but if you really want to, you could probably get away with a DMX servo shield as fadecandy supports the common Enttec DMX USB Pro adapter. More info on that here: https://github.com/scanlime/fadecandy/blob/master/doc/fc_server_config.md#using-open-pixel-control-with-dmx
@nkint wether it makes sense to use an Enttec DMX USB Pro and a servo dmx shield, instead of a basic microcontroller directly controlling the servo is totally up to you :)
