Programming Neopixels with MakeCode and the BBC micro:bit

NeoPixels are tiny, programmable, color-changing, LEDs manufactured by AdaFruit. NeoPixels make cool additions to micro:bit projects since they require little power, can be addressed individually or in groups, and can change color. Although MakeCode makes programming the micro:bit easy, there was too little documentation about how to control the NeoPixels until now.
