First you need to include the jQuery and Raphael libraries, since LED depends on them. You can download them from the jQuery website, Raphael website or link them directly from the Google CDN.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="//github.com/DmitryBaranovskiy/raphael/raw/master/raphael.js"></script>

Secondly, you need to include the LED Javascript file into your page. You can do it by adding the code below to your page.

<script src="js/jquery-led.js"></script>

Next, you create the element container that you want to apply catLED() on.

<div class="led1"></div>

As the last step, you trigger the catLED() function on the element you just created. In this case, we trigger the function on the div with the class led.
