Using node-red ui from asp.net web app

#1

I have an asp.net web app, where I need to develop just a UI similar to node-red drag and drop, and import/export the JSON flow, basically just a client-side functionality (HTML/CSS/Javascript) is what I need, is there any viable solution?

any help is appreaciated.

Sorry, not all that clear what you are asking for.

It would probably be easier if you explained what you were trying to achieve.

Hi @TotallyInformation,

In simple terms, I need to get Node-RED UI only its client-side working without its server/runtime/APIs.

That isn't a very easy thing to do today.

You'd need to replicate all of the http endpoints the editor uses to load state, such as the contents of the palette etc.

There is no guide for doing that.

But that doesn't really make sense since Node-RED is BOTH back and front end code that is integrated.

However, the core of the admin UI is built using D3.js so you could use the ideas in Node-RED to build your own tool. Many visual UI tools have been built similarly.
