    There's REST API integration coming (looks a bit buggy atm) and ChromaLink (up to 5 LEDs in a device, looking at the code, and 3 basic effects iirc)

    @njbmartin is that an actual light (USB-controlled?) that responds to ChromaLink or is it a variation of Hue/Lifx thing?

    Looking at that vis you still got some work to do :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: good luck!

    Also challenge accepted, my Lifx is ready to be controlled by my modified script :3

    After arena's retire, this is a really good news :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The only hardware hooked up is Razer Chroma :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    (I had this message written 2h ago but my OS decided to update, lol)

    I took a closer look and noticed the mug holder's base right there :)

    But... I don't get it. So that's a visualisation using REST API? Are there any advantages over the old C++ library (apart from ease of use)? I'm legit curious. I'm using REST for playing with Google Assistant, but I'm failing to see where this project is going :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The Chroma REST API is the best thing to happen to Chroma since the Chroma SDK was introduced, it's so much more powerful and the possibilities for developers has completely opened up.

    That visualiser you see isn't an app and doesn't require a "plugin". It's actually HTML5 running in Google Chrome!

    If you have Chrome, head here to take a look for yourself:

    > it's so much more powerful and the possibilities for developers has completely opened up.

    I looked at the SDK docs and... it's exactly the same :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The fact, however, that you're running it inside a browser (neat!) is both super cool and scary AF.

    So any website can take over the Chroma and trigger bugs without user's consent? Honestly that's, excuse the expression, fkd up.

    SDK already has had a 3+ month old bug where when you try to init SDK for a wireless mamba running at 1000Hz, it starts using 100% of a CPU core until you force stop the service. Now every website can keep triggering this bug for everyone by randomly generating chroma app ident (since the default choice is to allow access)

    On top of that the service auto-binds itself to port 80 which is messing some people's configs and opening up security holes in an already buggy software (Synapse and Chroma SDK). I dunno man.

    Regarding the project though, cool stuff! :) Some neat browser-fu!

    This is still early days, but the REST API will be much more reliable as there's no DLL to inject etc. We're working to improve it, especially around the security aspect.
