Is there any possibility to embed express js inside node red ? I know for the fact that its possible for node red to be included in any of our node projects. But what if due to some rare cases, I want to use express js in node red. is it possible ?
I'm not entirely clear what you mean.
Node-RED already uses express.js to serve all of its HTTP endpoints - both the admin endpoints and those created by the flow.
Any node or plugin has full access to the express app -
RED.httpAdmin are the two express.js apps used.
thanks! this solves my query
Just to expand on Nicks answer. It is perfectly possible to add a new ExpressJS server to a Node-RED custom node. That can be useful if you need to be able to offer different settings/middleware than the 2 built-in ones.
