Run container from node-red

Hi Guys,
I have a case, I'd like to know if you have some example to run container from node-red.


  • I'm extracting information from API and it's running;
  • storing it in a .xlsx file;

After that i'd like run a container with python code (pandas lib) to inprove mesurements, reports and charts.

What do you mean by 'run a container'.

Hi @Colin
I mean start the container like docker container run or docker-compose up.

if you know the terminal command, then perhaps you could do this via an exec node?
Alternatively, perhaps node-red-contrib-dockerode will do what you need?
