Hi Everyone,

I have no idea if i'm posting this in the right subject but I couldn't find anything better...
I'm trying to see how I would be able to install node-red on ClearOS. Seems like it's a bit more difficult then I thought (node.js, python version...).
Anyone who has a tutorial on how to install this? Would be great if I was able to. Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Wout

    I don't know. I was only commenting on the initial installation.

    Even all the possible extra node installations for node-red?

    I have a feeling that using npm just to install Node-Red would be OK as everything, on an initial glance, looked pretty much self-contained.

    We bought a raspberry pi to make this our node-red server. This way I don't have to install it on the clearOS, so I don't know if your solution would work, but I rather not risk it ifthe npm would conflict with ClearOS... Thank you for the fast response!

    Having a quick look round, nodejs is available from clearos-epel so you can install it with:
    yum install nodejs
    as clearos-epel should already be enabled. You'll only get 6.14.0 but that should be good enough. Then you can follow the instructions on the Node-Red site and use the npm package manager to install the rest. Normally using a third-party package manager is a bit frowned on but the alternatives don't look like they are any better. The danger is if npm brings down a package which conflicts with ClearOS.
