Hi guys,

The Web site is aviable at: http://localhost:1880/button

I did something similar in the past where i got help here, i tryed a lot but i cant get the solution by my own so iam hoping that someone may know how to do this.

Iam looking to find a solution that you get in output in Node Red whenever a switch is checked. And if Possible that you can send the Status to the Website if a status change. For example i turn a light on from somewhere else that the dashboard gets the status and change the switch on.

Thx in advance

I guess the first question is how much HTML/JavaScript coding do you know? If little to none, then you would probably be better off using Dashboard which will mean you don't need any front-end coding. If you do know some then you will hopefully understand that to use an http-in/-out, you'll probably want a template node in between that contains the HTML and any front-end JavaScript code. You will want to code a checkbox or some kind of toggle switch in the template node.

If you know some HTML but want Node-RED to do some more of the heavy lifting for you, you could also consider using uibuilder which may make things a lot easier.

Yes Itz not that much experience I got there, I hoped that with the switch I'd there could be an easy script to do the thing iam looking for

Then Dashboard is likely what you want. Install it from the palette manager in Node-RED, it is maintained by one of the original core devs of Node-RED.
