Is it possible to connect NodeRED to a java IDE?

#1

I've seen some examples of code such as here that imply it's possible to edit NodeRED via an IDE (such as eclipse) - is this correct? If so, does anybody know how you can do this/how it would interact with the NodeRED flow diagram?

Thanks!

Hi @nhar

the page you link to is an example of using a JavaSDK for the Watson services in IBM Cloud. It doesn't have any relationship to Node-RED.

There is no integration between Node-RED and other IDEs.

There are contributed nodes, such as https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-file-function, that provide similar functionality to the built-in Function node, but uses external files for the function code. That does allow them to be edited outside the of the Node-RED editor, but it isn't a highly integrated experience.
