I have finally got my pi-brella up and running. My original blog post is here and what I am going to do here is just present a quick guide to my first program which was created with the help on the guide you can find by following the link on my original blog post.
Essentially this program lights up the leds, turns them off, waits for the button to press then turns them back in with a 1 second delay between doing this. So just the very basic features people may need to get started.
you can git clone the files for this from
and will find the files in the pibrella directory
