Node-RED is a tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. 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.

The flows created in Node-RED are stored using JSON which can be easily imported and exported for sharing with others.

Available nodes that can be connected:

  • Transform – JS Functions, Mustache Templates
  • Social – Twitter, Twilio, Email, IRC, XMPP
  • Storage – Filesystem, MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL
  • Network – HTTP, TCP , UDP, MQTT
  • Hardware – Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black
  • Analysis – Sentiment, Statistics
