node-red-contrib-vnc 0.1.5

Node-Red nodes to connect to a VNC server, send keyboard, clipboard or mouse events and capture screenshots

npm install node-red-contrib-vnc

Node-red node allowing control of a VNC Server

N.B. This has been thrown together for a personal project and it's most-likely not efficent and doesn't have much error handling! I have released it as I cannot find VNC nodes elsewhere so it may be useful to others for similar purposes. I will try to release updates when time permits
