    boot.py: add your ssid, wlan password, and configure the ip address. You need this file if you want to connect the Wipy 2.0 to your router, otherwise you can avoid copying it and the Wipy remains as an wlan access point.

    main.py: you find some options here. The most important option is ledNumber. Set this value correctly.


    • dimmer_step: increase/decrese step by dimming (default: 0.05)
    • dimer_min_level: min dimming level (default: 65%)
    • sleep_time: time in milliseconds to wait between dimming steps (default: 250ms)
    • rotate_max: max step for rotating (default: 50 steps)
    • sleep_time_fast: time in milliseconds to wait between rotating steps (default: 150ms)

    You can also change the dimming colors:
