From the Community

Jsonata is a very useful and often underutilised tool built into Node-RED. Steve over at Steve's Node-RED Guide has published a great beginners guide. If you are new to Jsonata and want to learn more we recommend you take a look.

Custom Node Spotlight - node-red-contrib-queue-gate

Queue Gate is a handy custom node which allows you to control the flow of messages. You might wish to queue up all the messages in a flow and then release them all, once an hour. Maybe you want to release just one message at a time and wait until the prior message completed a section of your flow. Queue Gate makes message queuing really easy without the need to use an external queue solution.
