Node-RED is a popular visual programming tool for industrial IoT use cases like environment monitoring, device connections, and edge computing. In 2016, Node-RED became a project of JS Foundation to develop in the open community. Currently, Node-RED has been used in productions for both edge and cloud. Because of low-code development, Node-RED is suitable for rapid prototyping in PoC phase. But developing connectors (Node-RED nodes) is a time-consuming task because it requires HTML and JavaScript skills. To solve the problem, Hitachi developed "Node Generator" in Node-RED projects. Once developers define API specification using Swagger known as the standard format for REST API, the tool can automatically generate connectors. The tool will reduce the time in PoC phase dramatically. In this session, he talks about the details of the tool and demonstration to show benefits for developers.
