I have read a lot about Node-RED and about its importance in IoT projects. I am going to use on my Raspberry server where Homebridge and MQTT servers are already running.
I understood all about programming and flows (I am a Python programmer).
However there are a couple of points that are not clear to me.
First, is what happens then when a flow has been written and deployed? Whats does deploy mean? Shall it be compiled and run as a stand alone software or? (always in a Raspberry environment).
For instance I want to get some values from MQTT and publish then somewhere. What shall I do after having written the flow?
Second question, this time in an HomeBridge environment. How can I integrate/import Node-RED flows into Homebridge?
For instance I want to create a new accessory called Toggle Switch that switches on an existing accessory if it is off and switches it off if it already on.
How shall I combine Node-RED with Homebridge?
Thanks for the clarifications,
