For several months I have been scraping my Powerwall SoC data via an API within Node-RED, and then graphing the output within emonCMS. Works brilliantly.
I would like to do something similar with some Solcast solar data - both Actual and later, Forecast. I have two “personal” APIs - one for each feed. I have copy / pasted the entire Powerwall Node-RED flow, substituting a local IP based API for an external url. The flow throws up an API Failed RC=200 error in the emonCMS node. In the debug window it says …
“JSON parse error”
I have made no changes to this node, so presumably it is the previous node that is causing the issue. Sorry to be dim (once again), but how might I resolve this?
In case it helps, herewith a snippet from what the API returns in a browser.
How might I parse this, or does the software do it automatically? (Presumably not!).
