I've ran into a few issues that I will try to address one at a time. I'm not sure if this first item is a bug with Node-RED, or if I'm just doing it wrong.
ISSUE: Unable to remove node package after I've added then removed a node from a flow.
DETAILS: Trying to figure out how to use ElasticSearch with Node-RED (issue #2) and trying all the various projects listed in the palette. When I install a package, apply a node to a flow to test, and then remove it when it doesn't work, I am unable to remove the package from the management window. The only way to remove it is by calling
npm remove <package> on the host system. However, after I do this I notice the following error when I list available node modules using
npm ERR! missing: node-red-contrib-elasticsearch-continued@~0.1.0, required by email@example.com
npm ERR! missing: firstname.lastname@example.org, required by email@example.com
So my QUESTION - how to resolve that issue? And more specifically, how do I remove a node package from Node-RED using the palette manager when I am no longer using it. I've search through my flows for any references to these modules and cannot find them referenced anywhere. And if that is not an option, where is this dependency listed? What file/folder/location is holding the information for firstname.lastname@example.org?
Thanks for your assistance - and I hope to learn enough to contribute back to the community.
