A command line tool for remotely administering Node-RED.

Install this globally to make the node-red-admin command available on your path:

npm install -g node-red-admin

Note: you may need to run this with sudo, or from within an Administrator command shell.

You may also need to add --unsafe-perm to the command if you hit permissions errors during install.

   target  - Set or view the target URL and port like http://localhost:1880
   login   - Log user in to the target of the Node-RED admin API
   list    - List all of the installed nodes
   info    - Display more information about the module or node
   enable  - Enable the specified module or node set
   disable - Disable the specified module or node set

   install - Install the module from NPM to Node-RED
