Introduction


Since I started playing around with TTN, I've been looking for a good way to visualise the data that's coming out of all the nodes.

Tze Jin Shee wrote an excellent story on how to get setup with NodeRed and Freeboard.io, integrating the two via Dweet.io and allowing us to create dashboards quickly and easily.

I thought I'd see if I could take this one step further and use Variables in NodeRed to automatically create the Dweet Channels - it turns out that it's easier than I could ever have expected!
