after a few (successful) tests with deploying java on a Raspberry using resin.io and an external binary repository, I wanted to try “Node-RED”, the visual programming editor and runner you propose here : https://github.com/resin-io-projects/resin-node-red/
I have a few questions :
Why are u using a “node” image instead of the “alpine-node” ? I get it that the “slim” one is not ok, but why not alpine ? Currently, the image is 500 Mo and takes 25 min to download, while my java on alpine was 100 Mo and took about 6 min.
After enabling the public resin.io URL on my raspberry, I try to create some simple flow and deploy it, but it keeps saying : “Deploy failed: Not authorized”. I can see a login button in the upper right corner, but the doc says : “username : none, password : none”, so I’d think you don’t have to login by default.
Let’s say I define some USERNAME and PASSWORD var, do I have to crypt myself the PASSWORD var ? What would be the accepted crypting method ? (I’ve tried with plain text environment variables defined at application level in resion.io web console, but with no success.)
And now Let’s say I just want node-red to be deployed and run a pre-designed flow copied by Dockerfile, is this use case ok ? Do I need to hard code login/password somewhere to enable the flows to start ?
And a last one, because I know you do like questions : when Node-RED is loading, it says “Cannot find Pi RPi.GPIO python library” (I’m on Raspberry 2), is there a way to fix this or should it be fixed in ResinOS ?
Thanks for your lights.
