About Node-RED

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.

Step 1: Installation & Running

Type the following into the terminal:

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -

sudo apt-get install -y nodejs build-essential

sudo npm install -g node-red

At this point you can test your instance by running node-red. Note: you may get some errors regarding the Serial node - that’s to be expected and can be ignored.
Once started, you can access the editor at http://:1880/
