Node Red is pretty cool, but they seem to have a quite limited set of
components available, compared to the (by now outdated) listing at

We're doing something quite similar in this space with
http://flowhub.io/ but supporting multiple runtimes. These include:

* NoFlo (FBP implementation in JavaScript, both browser and Node.js)
* MicroFlo (FBP implementation running in microcontrollers) http://microflo.org/
* ImgFlo (FBP compatible interface for the GEGL image processing system)
* ...and others compatible with the runtime protocol

Here is one example of a IoT-ish project we did using the
NoFlo+MicroFlo combo, with NoFlo talking to web services to get data,
and then passing it to MicroFlo for LED visualization inside a bar

Another fun project in this space: http://bergie.iki.fi/blog/noflo-ardrone/
