[MMM-HTTPRequest] Send request without paying attention to the response
I just finished my first module for the MagicMirror. It is a very simple module, it lets you send a HTTP request and not paying attention to the response (other that the status code).
If you want you can configure it to be completely “silent” (no alerts) or it can send a notification (e.g. show an alert) when finished.
Any feedback is much appreciated!
