Node-red-contrib-mpi-s7 Palette installation

Hi, I trying use the node-red-contrib-mpi-s7 palette, but it is not install, I tried install in different typo of version, someone have a solution for it?

Can you post here the logs of the installation, a complete overview of your environment (versions of OS, Node and Node-RED)

Node red 1.3.5
Node.js version: v14.17.1

There are several unaddressed issues on the node's github page referencing this, The immediate problem is that it requires git to be installed in order to install the node. However I think that there are other installation issues that you may encounter even if you install git. The fact that the issues have not been responded to suggests to me that the node is no longer usable, in which case you will have to find an alternative solution.

mpi palette

Hi Colin, thanks for answering me.
Installed via "github", the installation is done, but the palette is disabled and it is impossible to enable. See attached photo.
I want to connect Node Red with Siemens PLC via mpi, as the device does not have Profinet communication.
Have you other suggestion?

As I said, it appears that the node is no longer usable or supported. Searching the flows site for s7 yields a number of suggestions, but whether any of these will help you I don't know. Library - Node-RED

Ok Colin, tks!
