Node-RED Docker Compose


#1

Is there a docker compose file for Node-Red that someone has completed?

And where would one download the latest Node-RED plugin for Home Assistant if you didn’t install it using Hass.io?


#2

??

Right in node red from the palette manager. Get the websocket version


#3

Thanks, it was telling it to run as root that I was missing. Now to go back and figure out how to make both HomeAssistant and Node-Red not run as root. But at least now I have something that’s all dockerized with the config folders in Github.


#4

Why?

Docker containers running as root isn’t all bad and if you change that (which would mean building a new image for HA), you will break things.


#5

I’ve rebuilt the image a few times already for kicks and giggle, and actually it survived fine - I mapped the configuration directory locally.


#6

There’s a guide here:

On how to use node-red with docker :slight_smile:
