Electron main window won't display the content of Node-RED


#1

We are trying to transplant Node-RED, a tool for create flows, onto Electron. That is, client open our electron application and they can draw flows in the main window.

We are on the first stage to see if we could build a PoC demo, unfortunatelly when we try to load ‘http://127.0.0.1:1880’ which is the service portal of Node-Red after starting Node-Red, the main window won’t display the workspace while we can see it in a real browser.

We want to know if we can load and use Node-RED’s portal like in a browser.

Since I’m not familiar with the way Electron’s window load a web page, any suggestions are welcome.
