Node-RED is comprised of a large ecosystem of nodes for IoT devices and services that makes it a powerful tool for IoT application development. In order to facilitate the usage of this heterogeneous ecosystem in industrial settings, we present here the NOde-red library eVAluation (NOVA) approach for gathering the relevant metadata in a knowledge base and first analyses of the data.
