Node red nodes to integrate rules into your flow

npm install node-red-contrib-nools

This package provides a rule engine for node-RED. It uses nools, a rete-based rule engine. You can create custom flows with multiple rules, the flow is bind to one or more assert nodes to insert new facts into the flow. Each fact is of type Message and identified by the msg.topic of the incoming node-RED message. If a message already exists with the same topic it will be updated. New messages will be asserted. If all conditions of a rule are evaluated the rule will be fired. The fire node outputs the rule name into your node-RED flow. The message object provides different functions and properties. There is also a Clock class which is available.

You can use the publish({topic: "sometopic", payload: "somepayload"}) to publish messages via the fire node. The topic property of the node operates as a filter.
