Hi! I would like to develop a Kubernetes Operator for submitting Node-RED flows. I currently run Kubernetes outside of GKE and have an idea for deploying as well as scaling out my Node-RED flows. While researching the proper steps to take I found postings mentioning that it is requested that such ideas are posted here first and out of respect for this great project-- here I am!
My idea is to create a Node that indicates containerized segmentations in the flow that, when exported and submitted to an operator, automatically get turned into TCP nodes. These TCP Nodes then act as a junction between pods in the deployment, with the proper services and pods automatically generated and orchestrated by the operator. I have plenty of additional ideas and details but wanted to stop there and check with the community on the proper way to go about such development or if something already exists for this use case. Many thanks for creating Node-RED!
