Ive asked ChatGPT to help me but it didnt give a viable solution
Ive done API calls before without any issues but this API service has gzip encoding
I have put an "Accept-encoding" into the http request.
However all im getting back as expected is garbage.
Has anybody done this before? any help appreciated as usual
I guess you will need to unzip it to see the content ?
Take a look at node-red-contrib-gzip
Thanks for the reply!
the gzip node only compresses not uncompresses ?
ChatGPT talked about gunzip but that node doesnt exist (that I can see anyway)
Not quite true,
Passing a string, will compress said string, passing a buffer, will decompress said buffer.
So instead of returning a string from your request (assuming HTTP Request Node), get it to return a buffer, and pass that, the node will then treat it as a compressed buffer, and decompress it.
