Can one "use" node-red node implementations within flow ? 03.13.2016 02:07 PM
I understand Flow is based on node-red in some fashion.
Can I import a node-red node implementation, the .html/.js, and any other dependencies required to actually implement the node execution code within Flow? ( not talking the pallettes node json data imported via import-clipboard).
As node-red can be run locally we can npm install a node-red-node package, restart node-red and the new nodes will appear on the pallette.
While I can see this can be done within code/lib for simple node implementations I do not see how to import more complex multi-subdir packages. Just adding to the projects package,json and doing a full build did not seem to do the trick, unless I missed a step.
Is this supported in any fashion or are we limited to the pre-installed node implementations?

while this appears to work it would be a bit tedious if there were several files involved, if one has to create the subdir, then upload the files, etc.... I hope this is not the long term answer.
As for now, I'm going to have to abandon my efforts as I'm seeing inconsistent results. The nodes were shown on the pallette, then I try to upload a locale file or deploy or switch to anothed project ( not sure of the exact sequence) and now they are gone. I am seeing some browser hangs ( or very, very long response times) so that could be part of "my" issues.
I would not doubt that this is a "personal" problem at my end with the config I'm running. Linux 12.0.4, chrome Version 46.0.2490.80
I'll try back after I see a bit more web cast activivty or documentation with Flow or the next hack-a-thon, which ever comes first. It is interesting, hope the kinks get worked out.
Thanks Edan for your help...
