1-Wire to MQTT Bridge using Raspberry Pi GPIO Interface

This flow is an example of using the 1-Wire node which can be found here: https://github.com/RobQuads/node-red-node-1wire

This simple flows reads a 1-wire temperature sensor (DS18S20) and publishes the reading to MQTT as a retained message.

In this flow, the inject node is used to specify the reference name of the 1-wire device to be read from (i.e 28-0114b8096eff, this triggers every minute. This is then passed to the 1-Wire node which reads the value of the sensor from the filesystem (i.e. /sys/bus/w1/devices/28-0114b8096eff/w1_slave)

The change node is used to set msg.retain to true - this causes MQTT to keep a copy of the latest temperature reading, so when a new client subscribes, it immediately gets a value.

Credit to njh for "1-wire to MQTT" bridge as this is based on it with the modifications of replacing owfs with GPIO as the interface
