What about OS.js like a Flow component in Node-RED?


Hi andersevenrud

I´m thinking about you and your product OS.js …
Maybe you can boost other enviroments for major use cases for OS.js

Please take a look in Node-RED
Dashboards would be appreciate and ever I think that your work is too very good for this

What about something like OS.js for a Dashboard component in Node-RED ?

Think about this:


node-red-contrib-osjs-dashboard ? :slight_smile:

This will be good!, maybe, please see this option

Thank you




I’m not familiar with RED, but I just had a look at briefly now.

What kind of a dashboard were you thinking about ?


Node-RED is a hight level Platform (and visual) for build programming solutions based in Data, Events, modules to flow and results

Then the Dashboard is the panel where I can see the result, and in general this is basic and programmatically done with modules, but this now can be very basic

All the “flow” component for Dashboards in Node-Red have basic capacity and for more or best visual results all this modules require more skills of other programm Languajes , and maybe something more manual like Node-RED is more smart

I remember sometime ago that you have something like this, to build automatically dashboards with more accesibylity

I still don’t really understand how you would fit OS.js into this. I would have thought it would be the other way around, i.e. using RED inside OS.js like some sort of development platform :thinking:


Ahh, Ok, I´m thinking about this
First look at the IDE (Interface Designer)


Yes, this was my thought as well – which was the point I was trying to make in my previous comment.

I have to take a closer look at how RED works and how this would be implemented into OS.js. Let me get back to you on this :slight_smile:


This can be a very good thing!
Good luck and I’ll be watching
Thank you!
