The next release of Indigenous will have channel management. Which is very cool. In the meantime I'm testing and fixing Ekster.
The other thing I could do in Node-RED is adding a location to a post even when it doesn't have one itself. This can be done because I keep track of locations with OwnTracks. Node-RED can add the location to the post.
Next I need to implement destinations for likes and bookmarks, to make it possible to automatically fetch information title even when micropub apps don't do it.
I added the code for destinations in Wrimini, the Android Micropub client. Now I can send a post to my website, which gets forwarded to Node-RED, which can change the post and post it somewhere else again.
I should implement destinations for Wrimini. I could send posts to a Node Red destination and apply some filtering automatically. This would also work well with the Micropub node.
The next thing that I want is a special micropub endpoint that I can write posts to from Node RED where these posts will disappears after a few hours, days or when removed, an ephemeral feed.
Being able to post from Node Red to Micropub-enabled endpoints enables quite a few possibilities. The version I'm working on now allows you to send just a string as a payload, which will used a content value.
I just released my first Node RED package. It uses @grantcodes micropub helper and can post messages to micropub blogs.
Testing from Node RED

OpenTherm gateway

Yesterday I received the parts for the opentherm gateway. It's a small board that lets me connect the heater and thermostat to my network. With this I should be able to control the heater and thermostat and read the temperature with Home Assistant.

Today I soldered the kit and flashed the NodeMCU that connects the board to the wifi network. It already works standalone and I can read the values through the network. Now I only need to connect the board with the heater and thermostat.
