Install NodeRed at your computer

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways.

It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to wire together flows using the wide range of nodes in the palette that can be deployed to its runtime in a single-click. (src: nodered.org)

The website provide all information about installation, how to get started and where download the source code.

"snr":{snr}, 
"station":"{station}", 
"data":"{data}",
