node-red-contrib-postgres

A Node-RED node to query PostgreSQL.

Install

Run the following command in the root directory of your Node-RED install

npm install node-red-contrib-postgres

The node-red postgres node uses a template node to set the query and uses msg.queryParameters as params for the query.
Each property in msg.queryParameters can be used as $propertyName in the query, see the 'setup params' and 'format query' node in the example.
The msg it then passed to the postgres node.
If you want the output of the query, check the 'Receive output' box in the postgres node.
The result of the query is then set on the msg.payload property which can be sent to a http node.

Example DB

CREATE TABLE public.table1
(
    field1 character varying,
    field2 integer
)
WITH (
    OIDS=FALSE
);
ALTER TABLE public.table1
  OWNER TO postgres;

INSERT INTO public.table1(
            field1, field2)
    VALUES ('row1',1);
INSERT INTO public.table1(
            field1, field2)
    VALUES ('row2',2);
