MMM-Rest & pimatic REST-API

  • I need help by my pimatic integration with the MMM-Rest Module.
    In the Module docu the url returns a single Integer but my pimatic api returs a string with more informations. like this

    curl http://user:user@himbeere/api/variables/dht-01.temperature

    what i need ist the value 20

    how i can filter the response?

    i have found this for an php request but i dont know how i can use it in the node_helper.js

    <b>Single value from weather.temperature:</b><br />
       $curl = curl_init();
       curl_setopt ($curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");
       curl_setopt ($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
       $result = curl_exec ($curl);// curl to a variable
        curl_close ($curl);
    	$result = json_decode($result, true);// decode to associative array
    	$result = $result['variable']['value'];//pick desired value
    	print "Temperature: ".$result; 

    $result = Temperature 11.4

                    if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
                        // console.log("send notification: ";
                        that.sendSocketNotification('MMM_REST_RESPONSE', {
                            data: response

    does anyone have an idea how i can integrate the decode in the node_helper.js?
