I must say up front I really like the UI on Node-Red. However I am trying to get Node-Red to work like this:
- Node-Red in Docker (https://nodered.org/docs/getting-started/docker).
The Host is Windows 10 (currently) I have been using the Node-Red Alpine Linux version for a Docker container. Does Node-Red need to install on a Windows Container?
b. Used Node-Red as a File Watcher (inotify) on Host for a specific file in a folder or subfolder.
- Node-Red needs to triggers a C# EXE when 1b is met
a. The EXE is on the Host but if it could be within another Docker Container that would be great.
b. The EXE connects to ODBC and pulls data from an internal SQL DB. How to do this in Docker?
c. Based on 1.b a C# .EXE generates Excel files that will be on the Host folder and subfolders. Docker Volumes?
- Eventually would like Docker containers of Dev and Prod.
I see bits and pieces around but nothing that really works. I am sure someone has done this right? If so can you point me in the right direction.
Thank in advance!
