What is moldecule?
You design. We code.
moledcule is a Chrome Application and acts as a companion for your AVR based microcontrollers.
moledcule was built to enable non technical users to leverage the capabilities of general purpose programmable RGB LEDs. moledcule connects to your AVR microcontroller such as Arduino to compile and flash ‘sketches’ to the microcontroller. It allows you to configure your devices, program and run them without writing a line of code. moledcule compiles the code, verifies it, and then ‘flashes’ the newly compiled machine code to your device.

[color=#10cfbd]Does moledcule support the Paradise Arcade Kaimana?
Yes, Including Reset to Default Settings
Moledcule was largely inspired by Kaimana, with the express desire to assist people who are not comfortable with coding, hardware, and the likes. The Kaimana is an Atmega32u4 microcontroller loaded with the Arduino bootloader.
Essentially, moledcule as a ‘theme’ creator for your Kaimana system; we support the capability to flash your Kaimana with the moledcule firmware, amongst other arduino devices with microcontroller hardware.
We have thoroughly tested moledcule against the Kaimana hardware.
It is important to note that while we support the Kaimana, we are not officially endorsed by Paradise Arcade, and therefore are not liable for any issues with hardware in conjunction with using our software. To address this, we have a backup system that allows you to flash to the default version of the Kaimana library at any time.
If you are using the Kaimana and need help, please visit the Kaimama shoryuken.com support thread.
Does moledcule cost money?
We truly believe in the concept of “open source community”. As of this writing, moledcule costs nothing to use.
Can I create patterns for my hitbox?
Our interface supports both fightsticks and hitbox layouts, 6 button, 8 button, alt buttons, directional leds, led rings.
How does moledcule handle my existing wiring order?
Drag, drop, reorder, done
The Kaimana and similar arduino LED controllers use a digitally addressable LED chain. This allows for simpler wiring; each LED can be set individually without necessarily wiring in that manner. Everything starts with the controller and ends at the last LED in the chain. That said, once everything is wired up, the LED patterns you author must make note of this chain.
We know that rearranging your existing wiring to accommodate a LED controller is a hassle. We solved it for you by offering a clear visual interface that allows you to arrange the LED patterns according to your physical wiring, instead of the other way around.
Do I need to know how to write code in C/C++/Java/ELM/Rust?
What’s great about the moledcule is its simplicity. Plug in, compile and flash the theme of your choice. We do the lifting. All that is left to do is express your creativity.
Do I need AVR, Arduino, Teensy, Special Hardware…?
All you need is Chrome
The beauty of moledcule, is that works right out of your browser.
Simply download the Chrome App available directly in the Chrome Web Store and launch it!

What are Themes?
Patterns to suit your ideas, preferences, or design
Themes represent both LED color and animation patterns of your own making. Those patterns can represent an idea - such as buttons with light, pastel colors. It could match a preference - perhaps you enjoy simple flashing lights, or a smooth transition from one color to another. If you are designing your Fightstick around a favorite movie or cartoon, you can light and animate specifically to match it.
In moledcule, you can create an unlimited amount of themes, clone others, and even compile others’ themes directly onto your device. The best part is that you can share your themes with others across the globe.
Manage your own list of themes
Themes are your own awesome collection of color variations, build variations and so on.
With moledcule there is no longer a need manage files on your desktop. Themes are as portable as you - login from any Chrome browser get back to work.
Can I restore the original Paradise Arcade Kaimana firmware?
Moledcule will compile and flash your device with the original manufacturers code. If you ever need to revert back to the device’s original state, simply visit the “reset” section of the application, and click the “reset” button. Moledcule will do the rest.
I’m ready to try this thing out!
We are just excited as you are to kick things off in the right direction.
