braumeister node

braumeister node

This node does an HTTP request to the Braumeister's /bm.txt file. The response is a txt file containing a csv-like string:

"V1.1.27 Sep 12 2018;0004A30B003FA809;0X13:13XCX2930X0X 72.5X0X2234X1X1X5X0X191XA00SXpiX000X0X0X0"

(See /bm.txt for more details what these values stand for.)

This node converts this string into an object containing measurement data / status values.

Contributions are always welcome! I need help further decrypting the /bm.txt response file.
