An extensible network service container for Node.js.

NodeRed is an extensible network service container for Node.js. NodeRed provides plumbing such as a TCP/IP and WebSocket server, a protocol parser, a request dispatcher, inter-node communication via Redis' PUBSUB features, and extensibility via JavaScript. NodeRed is written for Node.js. Moreover, extensions are simply Node.js modules. These extensions may add new request handlers to the NodeRed client-server protocol; may hook into NodeRed client-handling events (e.g. on client connection); and may emit their own events that yet other extensions may listen for and react to.
