Physical Web Node-RED nodes

Been playing playing with some NodeJS to build Eddystone beacons after watching this:

And having a poke round here

I had earlier been looking at BLE and NodeJS to build BLE devices that can have their state updated via MQTT

Physical web nodes

I’ve written 2 new nodes, the first will listen for any Eddystone beacons in the area and publish the details about the beacon.

The second creates a Eddystone beacon and broadcasts a given URL, it can also update the URL with the msg.payload value.

The code is here* and it can be installed from npmjs with:

npm install node-red-node-physical-web

* this will be moved to the node-red-nodes repo shortly
