Node-RED nodes for iHost (CUBE)

Can anyone tell me which set of nodes is best to use for Node-RED on iHost? Searching for “ewelink” in the Node-RED Library or from the Manage palette menu item gives three candidates:

  • node-red-contrib-ewelink-cube (updated 3 months, 2 weeks ago, version 1.0.0)
  • node-red-contrib-tcube (updated 3 months, 2 weeks ago, version, 0.0.12)
  • node-red-contrib-superpower-test (updated 1 month, 3 weeks ago, version 0.0.2)

These all seem to contain the same nodes. The last is the most recent, but the first has the highest version number. Is one of these “official” and likely to be maintained in the future?

Also, none of the library entries gives a link to a GitHub repo, although node-red-contrib-ewelink-cube is in GitHub. That repo may not be current, however, since the package.json gives the version as 0.0.1. It would be helpful if the developers could use GitHub, npm, and the standard Node-RED procedure for contributed nodes to clarify the situation.

the maintained one is node-red-contrib-ewelink-cube
thank you for the feedback

Can I use localhost or another IP to acess to ihost API from inside node red plugin?

The most stable way to access iHost in node-red is use IP address.
If you use IP address, then setup a fixed IP address for your iHost is recommanded.

Also, you can use domain from selector in server menu.
