Extended Raspberry Pi Library for the LPD8806

Great project mentioned in the Adafruit Forums!

I’m in the middle of a large lighting project using a Rapsberry Pi to control some LPD8806 LED strips and the original library post was actually created the same day I got started. It got things started nicely but I was already used to all the built in functions and animations from the Arduino library, so I decided to extend the library with more animations and some helper methods and classes to make using it easier.

Eventually this will be part of a network controlled lighting system but it’s quite usable for just about any application.

Library is hosted here.
Demo video is here.
