Node-RED is a visual tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services. The latest release of Node-RED 3 brings a new alternative text editor and support for continuous search.
Version 3.0 of Node-RED has a number of improvements to the editor interface, starting with a right-click context menu in the workspace, and improved debugging of flows with a new tooltip that shows the full location of the node when you hover over a node.

A new continuous search option has been added; specifically, this lets you move between matches in a set of search results. There are also more predefined searches, including the ability to restrict the search to the current flow.

The developers say it has proved to be very stable and provides a much richer user experience, so in this release they have switched over to Monaco as the default editor.
Node-RED 3.0 is available now.
