Wifi101-MKR1000/Zero Neopixel Throwie

Basically what the title says. A few rough edges left to smooth out and perhaps adding a color wheel. Code was adapted from a few sources, but mostly my own work originally intended for an ESP8266 device.

Needed a few mods to the code as the libraries were completely different and as the Wifi101 has no SD reader (the ESP8266-12E can hold 3 megs or so) the whole site is in the code (very messy with long strings of HTML).

Planning on possible update with a color picker which was in the original ESP8266 code. With the added space it could host jquery/js files.
