Installation Node red Platform

Installing Node-Red Platform

Longtime had wanted to try this platform called Node-red created by IBM, was developed in nodejs, Node red is developed by Nick O’Leary and Dave Conway-Jones thanks for their contributions.
But that is Node-red ?
It is an open source graphical tool based connection nodes containing API’S and / or services for communication and / or connecting devices to the Internet
of things, has a friendly web interface contains a variety of basic and complex functions IoT, there is also an online version of node red called IBM bluemix.
There are many tutorials to install Node-red on a local server, but these tutorials although very complete I did not work properly, I decided collect the steps to install Node-red in Linux, in this case Lubuntu (Ubuntu) I hope you will his liking this guide.

Applications

No need to be a great programmer to use Node-red, although his native language is javascript with a few tutorials will be very easy to make applications Arduino or ESP8266 or other platforms.
Currently installed Node red on Raspberry pi, excellent, although effected, since testing I decided to install it on Lubuntu (Linux) by hardware capacity.

Tutorial Install lubuntu

For testing I have previously installed a virtual machine with lubuntu, through the SSH client PuTTY equivalent to a command terminal.
