I decided to play with node-red. I have no experience with it or with node.js or with docker. I gathered that the best way to install it is to install the other components from the distro repositories, including npm, and then install node-red using npm. I run openSUSE Leap 15.0
When I ran the npm command from the node-red docs I got a bunch of warnings about deprecated modules/components/whatever (I don't know the correct terminology). Since I've no idea what I'm doing, I have no idea whether they matter, or how to fix them if they do. So I'm hoping that somebody who is
more familiar with this stuff than I am can tell me whether I need to worry. This is the npm output:
# npm install -g --unsafe-perm node-red npm WARN deprecated firstname.lastname@example.org: Mailparser versions older than v2.3.0 are deprecated npm WARN deprecated email@example.com: All versions below 4.0.1 of Nodemailer are deprecated.

Node-red does come up in my browser and apparently works.
