How to install other modules in QIoT Suite Lite NodeRED?

 Step:

  1. Connect to your NAS via SSH.
  2. Enter the command “system-docker exec -ti qiot-node-red bash“.
  3. Go to the node-red directory: “cd /usr/local/lib/node_modules/node-red
  4. Use the node that npm needs for installation (for example: “npm install node-red-contrib-chatbot“)
  5. Leave SSH and open QIoT Suite Lite.
  6. Stop your IoT Application and then start it again. You will see the module you just added. (Some module require you to stop and re-start QIoT Suite Lite from the QTS APP Center)

   ※ Note: If your module uses GCC compiler or modifies the OS interface, then the module may not work even if successfully installed.

    Hi,

    I followed the above guide to intstall the node-red “worldmap” node to the qiot platform.
    The node was installed and visible in the node-red interface. However the map can not be seen. I assume the worldmap is a popular node an therefore wonder if you can write a guide of how to make the map visible on the site or dashboard?
