Low-code programming for event-driven applications
Node-RED is a Flow Based Programming tool written in node.js and using a web front end for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways.
Many extra nodes are available (see http://flows.nodered.org), and can be installed via the Menu - Manage Palette option. Due to the restrictions of snaps nodes that require extra access to files, ports, or have a binary component, may NOT work or install correctly.
If you need access to ports or t compile binary nodes (eg Modbus) - then DO NOT use this snap. Install the full version from [NodeRED.org](http://nodered.org) instead.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
