There is a big community that builds software for Node-RED and the Pi. The import Nodes functionality is a dialog that allows to add third party software to the current installation.

Adding new functionalities

Click the right menu in the Node-RED web page. Choose Manage Palette then Install.

And fill the edit field with the libray name to import

Be aware that some nodes need further low level installation (as “apt-get xxx”) that can be only be made by advanced users. These additional steps cannot be guessed by the generic node installer that is described here.
