Can I run Node-Red on Elegoo (it's similar to Arduino)
Is it possible to run Node-Red on Windows or Virtual Machine to test nodes? In the past when I was importing other nodes from other users on PI3 they got messed up easily and had to run backups all the time, which was time waste.
Does Node-Red allow to connect securely to the main dashboard /ui ? By securely I mean, safe with passwords etc.
In fact node-RED does not need a keyboard or screen. I run it on several Pi Zeros which don't have any UI peripherals at all. Everything is done via the browser or ssh. Also I see that node.js can run on an Arduino, but whether there would be sufficient resources to run even a minimal node-RED server is another matter.
None of the main Arduino boards can run node.js. The only board I know of that could just about run node.js was the Arduino Yun, but that isn't available these days (as far as I can see). Admitted their range of boards has grown since I last played with them regularly, but looking through them, I don't see any that run a OS that can support node.js.
@jordan the key requirement for whether a device can run Node-RED is whether you can install node.js on it. That will typically require it to run a linux operating system, rather than be an embedded controller as found on the arduino.
Ah, it seems I was confused by the many articles such as the one below which at first sight seem to be suggesting that node.js is running on the Arduino. Having looked further into them however I see that I am guilty of promulgating fake news. Sorry.
