    Paste this command into your Raspberry Pi terminal. This will install everything you need to run Node-Red.

    bash <(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/node-red/linux-installers/master/deb/update-nodejs-and-nodered)

    You can read more and see where this command comes from here:

    Assume you have installed Node-Red, added the dashboard nodes to your pallet and built a flow with dashboard.

    Now, how to see the dashboard....

    On any browser, enter: <IP address of device running Node Red>:1880/ui

    If that was not your question, please ask again.

    Thanks Alan. Actually I have not installed node red on my computer. I keep looking for a outline of where to start. (A map of sorts) Yesterday I found some information but it took me to a node.js but was not sure this was what was needed, Should I use the LTS or the Current version of node.js.
    Any help with this would be well appreciated.
    Thank you

    Alan, I have now installed the node.js program using the LTS version.
    I am at this position, see image.
  • Hi Paul,

    I run Node Red on a Raspberry Pi. We have a Node Red for Ham Radio groups.io group. The group site has over 200 members who can assist with any questions you may have. In the WiKi section of the site I have written a WiKi on setting up a Raspberry Pi from scratch with Node Red, .Net, and FRStack. It would then be ready to install your first flow.

    In the file section there are people (myself included) who share our flows for various equipment and the Flex 6000 series radios.

    You will need to join to access the file section and WiKi but membership is free.
