This is a
playground to test code. It runs a full
Node.js environment and already has all of
npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including
node-red-node-suncalc with all
npm packages installed. Try it out:
node-red-node-suncalc lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

A Node-RED node to provide a signal at sunrise and sunset.
Run the following command in your Node-RED user directory - typically
npm install node-red-node-suncalc
Uses the suncalc npm to generate an output at sunrise and sunset based on a specified location.
Several choices of definition of sunrise and sunset are available, see the suncalc module for details.
The node provide two outputs. The first output emits a
msg.payload of 1 or 0 every minute
depending if day-time (1) or night-time (0).
The second output emits only on the transition between night to day (-> 1) or day to night (-> 0).
It also sets the
msg.topic to sun and
msg.moon to the fraction of the moon currently visible
(a value between 0 for no moon and 1 for full moon).
