Comments in Github?

I want to put documentation on each flow within a comment node and then have the documentation also show up in GitHub. I note I can evolve the from within nodered (but even that seems to be one way. If I change the within GitHub and then pull to nodered, the readme in nodered does not update).

Is it possible to at least get to a URL where the comment node puts the text so that this could be used within a Github readme page?

Thank you.

What do you mean by 'pull to node-red' and where are you seeing the readme within node-red?

The readme is shown in the project settings dialog as the description of the project.

@solarslurpie If there's an issue with things getting out of sync in the editor, or not refreshing properly, please raise an issue with details.

Ah, using the projects feature. I was in the wrong context.

@Colin Thank you. Re: raise an issue. Do you mean within a GitHub (so i should google nodered github and submit a PR?).

What about the text within a Comment node? Is it possible to have it sync'd / read within a GitHub such that a person does not need to install the flow before seeing the text?

Thank you.

You should have replied to @knolleary as those questions relate to his post. He should see this now as I have tagged him.

If you are able to, an issue on GitHub - node-red/node-red: Low-code programming for event-driven applications to cover the scenario regarding the readme getting out of sync, that would be great. No worries if not, although I'm not likely to remember about it otherwise.

Regarding your questions about comment nodes - there is nothing built-in to the editor that will pull out text from the flow and add it to the readme.
