    I've added sk6812rgbw-spi support in Hyperion-ng So we can drive them with PWM or SPI

    No real improvement on the colorspace yet as there aren't any fancier algorithms written to make the most of the white channel.

    We've just got ignore and subtract_min

    I haven't looked at this again as I only have a few of these leds.

    happy to help someone integrate some smarter algorithms from elsewhere

    It should work - it looks to be the same as the sk6812rgbw
