Looking forward to your replies.
@axled var xxx = require(‘xml2json’)
if u need something other than code YOU write, that is a dependency
create a package.json in your module folder and add those other things to the list to get installed after your module, with npm install
xml2js is the only way I know to do it. I know we try to not use dependencies but sometimes it can’t be helped.
@cowboysdude Do we? Didn’t know about that. Why? Because it’s getting too complex?
@lavolp3 Well I use the principle that less moving parts tends to make things easier…
@cowboysdude well you’re right in the aspect that one dependency of your rfacts module messed up the whole module for me.

Thanks for your posts, i got some further.
- i added following line in my node_helper.js
const parser = require("./MMM-Dreambox-xml2json.js");
So node_helper.js checks for MMM-Dreambox-xml2json.js within the same directory.
After this, i can use a function of
MMM-Dreambox-xml2json.jsinside of node_helper.js by calling
parser.functionname()in my case
