Ok, this maybe we’ll trodden ground, but for a while now, I’ve always tried to run the things I need on my NAS, mainly via a container (e.g docker)
But.... a recent flow/dashboard design challenge made me question my Docker approach for hosting NR, as i need to access ffmpeg, which is installed on the host machine) .
What is the ‘best’ way for me to run Node Red ?
I appreciate this will be a subjective topic, especially as I had previously run node red solely on a Pi previously, but the benefit of using my NAS as a shared host for all my HA needs, shone through, largely due to my ability to allocate any amount of the host’s quad core cpu and it’s 16gb memory where I felt it was needed.
Given the choice and greater flexibility, is a VM a better way to go ? And if so what virtual OS would be best for NR to be installed on ?
