The editor provides a number of APIs for nodes and plugins to use to help them integrate with the editor.
RED.actions- register custom actions
RED.events- listen for events within the editor
RED.notify- show notifications in the editor
RED.sidebar- add sidebar tabs
A set of jQuery widgets are available that can be used within a node’s edit template.
TypedInput- a replacement for a regular
<input>that allows the type of the value to be chosen, including options for string, number and boolean. Used extensively in the core Node-RED nodes.
EditableList- an editable list where the elements can be complex forms in their own right. Used by the core
SearchBox- an enhanced
<input>for common usage around Search UX.
TreeList- a list to display tree-structured data.
The appearance of the editor can be customised using themes. Themes are packaged
and installed as Node-RED plugins, and then selected via the
property in the settings file.
