Arduino neopixel pattern controllers? Answered

I'm new to arduino. I managed to get one working for my phoenix headpiece, however I'm working on a new project and would love to make something with multiple patterns on about a meter of neopixel strip. I'm not that interested in learning how to write arduino code, and after struggling just to get one basic pattern working last time I am wondering if there are either out of the box controllers out there with pre-programmed patterns (does this exist?), or good apps for generating code that offer something other than frenetic chase/blink type patterns. I really like more organic and/or slow fading patterns.

I've found a few things searching online, but given my newness I'm having a hard time narrowing in on what would be best for a total noob :) One alternative to arduino that came up was Pixelblaze, in case anyone has ever used one of those controllers.

Any advice welcome!
