Piunora comes with a WS2812 (aka Neopixel) LED for you to use in your application.

The LED is connected to GPIO12. See our Blinka example located in the home folder to use the LED.

Or check the examples out here in git.

Please be aware that this uses the PWM0 peripheral (also available on GPIO18), so if you use PWM audio this will be in conflict.

If you prefer C over Python you can also use rpi_ws281x directly which is the underlying library for the Python library.
