Node-RED on IBM Cloud
This repository is an example Node-RED application that can be deployed into IBM Cloud with only a couple clicks. Try it out for yourself right now by clicking:
How does this work?
When you click the button, you are taken to IBM Cloud where you get a pick a name for your application at which point the platform takes over, grabs the code from this repository and gets it deployed.
It will automatically create an instance of the Cloudant service, call it
sample-node-red-cloudantNoSQLDB and bind it to you app. This is where your
Node-RED instance will store its data. If you deploy multiple instances of
Node-RED from this repository, they will share the one Cloudant instance.
When you first access the application, you'll be asked to set some security options to ensure your flow editor remains secure from unauthorised access.
It includes a set of default flows that are automatically deployed the first time Node-RED runs.
This repository is here to be cloned, modified and re-used to allow anyone create their own Node-RED based application that can be quickly deployed to IBM Cloud.
The default flows are stored in the
defaults directory in the file called
When the application is first started, this flow is copied to the attached Cloudant
instance. When a change is deployed from the editor, the version in cloudant will
be updated - not this file.
The web content you get when you go to the application's URL is stored under the

package.json file and all other Node-RED
configuration settings can be set in
