[Ethereum] How to decode input data from a transaction


I'm sending a transaction to an account with some data with the following command:


I'm getting this result, by extracting the log of the transaction (running with testRPC):

   tx hash         : 0xf654aee5ed23f9aeebd2d73c69c7b9c21a4862787966d09bcb09ed44efc1f252
   nonce           : 0
   blockHash       : 0x6ff8a0e3ac606abd2ede4331b82af52a0daa98448025051fb3b3d50f749aa49f
   blockNumber     : 1
   transactionIndex: 0
   from            : 0xf64918835bc21dff9e8210a807b3964d1be35dd0
   to              : 0x08f986b7535c2b72687d3cb193135f1c6e27c336
   value           : 1000000000000000000
   time            : 1483614904 Thu, 05 Jan 2017 11:15:04 GMT
   gasPrice        : 1
   gas             : 90000
   input           : 0x687474703a2f2f6c6f63616c686f73743a38353435

I want to decode the last line "input" and try to get "http://localhost:8545".
I saw some work similar to my question here and here, but this is not working in my case. Moreover, i tried .toString('hex')) but it remains as hex.

How can I achieve this?

Thanks in advance

You can do web3.toAscii(transactionID.input) to return the data in readable format.
