Sample Program

from future import *

from sugar import *

rotation = Rotation('P1')

x = 0

# It's the interval mapping formula, you can just use it directly

def valmap(x, in_min, in_max, out_min, out_max):

    return int((x-in_min) * (out_max-out_min) / (in_max-in_min) + out_min)

neopix=NeoPixel("P7",3)

while True:

    x = (round(valmap(rotation.value(), 0, 4096, 0, 255)))

    neopix.setColorAll((x,x,x))
