Node-red-contrib-ui-web-push unknown: ui_web_push_client

Hi all,

when I try to use the Basic example flow from bartbutenaers / node-red-contrib-ui-web-push one node is unknown although I think I have installed everything.

Any ideas?


Hi Thomas,
Which node is unknown?

Good morning Bart,

the ui_web_push_client node is unknown.
Can you see it in the screenshot?

Ah ok, so my own node is missing...
How did you install it? From within your .node-red folder? Any errors during installation, or in your Node-RED server log, or in your browser console log?

Hi Bart,

I did install node-red-contrib-ui-web-push using Node Red editor in browser.
I do not remember any problems.

That is not possible, because I have never published that Node in the palette...
I have a couple of nodes that are nearly finished, but never found the time to do that. But it works, because I use it myself to send messages from Node-RED to my Android phone (without third-party tools).
I assume you have installed this one from your palette (which you als need): node-red-contrib-web-push...

You need to install mine directly from my Github repo using following command (from within your .node-red folder):

npm install bartbutenaers/node-red-contrib-ui-web-push

I will add that on my readme page.

I will try to do it so and come back with the result ...

Hi, I am back :slightly_smiling_face:

If I try to install, this happens:

pi@raspberrypi:/usr/lib/node_modules/node-red $ sudo npm install bartbutenaers/node-red-contrib-ui-web-push

What does that mean?
What can I do?


Not sure about that. Hopefully some npm goeroes can join this discussion ...

It looks like you are installing the node globally. It should be installed in your local user directory. Usually ~/.node-red. The messages aren’t a problem but are related to creating a “project” of all you installed nodes
