Is Node-Red suppose to work with BBB?

I will admit that I just opened the box and followed the "getting started" guides to get things up to date. However, my goal with buying this device in the first place was to play with Node-Red. I do not see that it has the ability to interact with the gpio of BBB. Should it have some nodes on the pallet? I've tried to add the third party nodes but those instructions only end in errors.

As long as I know it "should" work, I will keep trying.
