Node-RED is a tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. I often used it for my Proof of Concept and demo.
In my future it will be more and more present the cloud platform Azure, so I decided to write this post about how to install and use node red on Azure. Here are the main steps:
Create an Ubuntu Server
in Compute select Ubuntu Server, give your machine a name, the username you want to use and the authentication details you want to use to access the instance:
Configure TCP Inbound rule
on the Network security group option, add a new inbound rule with a name and a priority and the options set as Protocol equal to TCP and Destination port equal to 1880:
logon in virtual machine by ssh and install nodejs repository, then install nodejs and nodered:
that’s all, you can continue to use node-Red for any proof of concept.
thanks to all !
