To make it more powerful, i suggest to add a simple but yet powerful business rule engine. Node-red-contrib-nools provides a rule engine for node-RED. It uses nools, a rete-based rule engine.

I suggest to make a -click installation application image

    That is a great suggestion. An Ubuntu 16.04 LTS + Nginx proxy (with let's encrypt SSL certificate) + Node.js + Node-red + firewall ports setup ... there are a lot of things to set up just to get started.
    A 1-click installation droplet would be nothing less that amazing. Anyone will be able to get started right away with Node-Red and if they need more, they'll still have access to a full Ubuntu server.
    Services like FRED ( are charging a lot for something that would cost a fraction here on Digital Ocean.
