What is Node RED
A visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things. It allows you to wire together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways.
- Browser-based flow editing
- Built on Node.js
- The light-weight runtime is built on Node.js, taking full advantage of its event-driven, non-blocking model. This makes it ideal to run at the edge of the network on low-cost hardware such as the Raspberry Pi as well as in the cloud.
- Social Development
- The flows created in Node-RED are stored using JSON which can be easily imported and exported for sharing with others. An online flow library allows you to share your best flows with the world.
