Running node-red offline


Is it possible to run node-red without internet access? I want to do some simple file handling on a system without internet access, the only mean that i ll use for communication is bluetooth. Also i want to ask if there is a way to use node-red’s ui without internet access. The answer may be obvious to many of you , but not me.


@ThanosMel Node-RED does not require an internet connection to run - assuming none of your flows want to do anything on the network.

The editor is only accessible in a browser. If you can login to a desktop environment on the device, then launch a web browser in that environment and access node-red at http://localhost:1880.

If your device doesn’t have a desktop environment and has no local network connection then you’re not going to be able to access the editor.
