Node-RED is an open-source programming tool for wiring together things in a new and interesting way. Things are hardware devices, APIs, online services etc.
Further Node-RED provides a browser-based editor that eases wiring together flows using a wide range of nodes given in the palette that is deployed to its runtime in a single-click.
In the Internet of Things (IoT) world we want to connect things together. However, sometimes they were not meant to be connected. Node-RED makes this fast and easy.
EVOCEAN developed a Things Execution Framework (TXF) for IBM Rational Rhapsody, such that you can wire the things easily on the fly together with Node-RED. Thus, empowering Model Execution and wiring. You can read more about this on the ConDisSca product page.
The light-weight runtime is built on Node.js, taking full advantage of its event-driven, non-blocking model. As a result 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. With well over 2oo,000 modules in Node’s package repository, it is easy to extend the range of palette nodes to add new capabilities.
The flows created in Node-RED are stored using JSON which can be easily imported and exported for sharing with others. Further, an online flow library allows you to share your best flows with the world.
