    Picked up a second Photon/Neopixel: Followed exact procedure as the first one; but today the code won't verify/compile. Tried several times; same error:

    Any ideas? :(



    Edit: Opened the saved project from yesterday; tried a verify on that, and it failed as well. :confused:

    Most likely it's a firmware issue on the Photon if the sketch worked on the other one, would compare both to see if they run the latest and if not update its firmware manually.
    Under Devices you can find each device firmware:

    If that is the same version check the FastLED library, just verified it with FastLED 3.1.5 which is the most recent there.

    @Rick164, a brief check reveals that both units are on fw. 0.6.0. (I was expecting dissimilar firmwares)

    Tried re-flashing both units with both new project and saved .ino from yesterday - in all cases code fails to compile via Web IDE
    FastLed 3.1.5 included in project.
    All actions done on same notebook as yesterday.

    It's so strange; especially if you've just managed to verify and compile a test sample of the code. :eek:

    Nothing odd in the project below, all lines of code accounted for; except the errors.

    Hi @Rick164

    Had some time to return to this: I can compile other projects successfully; however NEW SKETCH > include FASTLED > Copy/Paste AtmoOrb_UDP.ino does not want to verify/compile.
    In fact, any project, even simply including FASTLED on it's own in an empty test sketch doesn't verify!

    Results in: "Error: Could not compile. Please review your code."

    Am I the only one getting this?
    Or has a change been made to the FASTLED (3.1.5) library which is causing a compile error in the particle Web IDE?
    Anyone else building on of these Photon/NeoPixel 24 ring units right now?


    @Lightning303 - Sorry to bother you as well; I'm wondering if you could offer an opinion/thoughts? Any feedback and ideas welcomed and appreciated.

    There's something weird going on with the 0.6.0 and up firmwares from Photon, if you use 0.5.3 all sketches work perfectly :)
    If you want to use Photons with 0.6.0 we would need a FastLED update but dev isn't ready so far.

    Updated tutorial to reflect this so new users don't run into it, @Angst sorry for the delay and thanks for reporting it as it helped trace it back.
