ESP8266 controlling WS2812 Neopixel LEDs using Arduino IDE - A Tutorial
Glad you're doing that. Thanks for pitching in! It wasn't my intent with this one, since there many different ways you can do this depending on what you want and I had other plans for the control and just needed to figure out the ESP8266 interface w/ the neopixels. I'm glad others are contributing, and I'd be glad to update this instructable to point to another that demonstrates how to control via wifi.
Working on it. But I seem to be running out of space. Trying to consolidate code to get it to fit. Look into the ESP8266 example sketches(ive started with captive portal for a direct connection when no wifi router is around). if/then/else; ive programmed in based on the indexOf url (ex /rainbow/ or /red/ or /redc/ for red chasing ect) and buttons to pass it to the url. Code is sloppy right now, but hopefully I'll have something soon.

Thanks, glad this helped!
Thanks for the tutorial. Very well written, great to have everything in one place.
Cool project. Thanks for putting forth the effort to help people learn. One question though, since your using the ESP8266, it seems as though the article would include info on how to actually control the pixels via wifi. Am I missing something?
I tested, control individual leds by Blink can be normal operation！But, with 12 for the lamp ring cannot normal control, lamp ring no response
Why I can't finish, gpio output is Unlike the arduino
