Exred Overview

Exred is a flow-based programming tool inspired by Node-RED and written in Elixir. You don’t have to know Elixir to use it although that is definitely helpful.

Exred utilizes Elixir’s easy process creation, message passing and supervision trees.

It can be deployed anywhere where you can run an Erlang release or a Docker image.
There are docker files to build images based on the standard elixir:1.5 image (Debian) and on the resin/rpi-raspbian image. Using the rpi image it can be run on a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian, Docker and Docker Compose installed.

Future plans include support for deployment with Nerves.
