A bit of Slack (thank you chris_b), gooling, etc. and managed to get it running

The following script is not perfect,

For my environment which doesnt use TLS and authentication (test env), I had to comment out the following lines from the script:

These changes should be included into the package by default with simple checks.

Unfortunately the app also breaks on newer Splunk versions such as 7.3, while I made various changes to make it work I have not found a good replacement yet!
