Node Red (Pi installation) Nov 2018

11/25/2018

Just installed pi os with noobs (Raspian v2.8 Nov2018), surprised that node red was preinstalled (nodered version 0.19.4).

What to do next after default installation:
1. Start node-red. Open browser, point to localhost:1880 Chk version (setup hamburger)
2. Pallette is not visible

chk npm version with npm -v
sudo apt update && sudo apt install npm ; however this seem not to work
then I tried "update-nodejs-and-nodered"
that did the trick.

3. Install the extra nodes:

dashboard

arduino

alexa

dweet


Autostart
sudo systemctl enable nodered.service
