Hi! I just tried to implement this cool dashboard. I do have knowledge about node-red so not a total beginner. I have a strange issue though which I cannot wrap my head around. There is one step that goes wrong each time for me. The minute I configure statichttp in settings.js to configure the path to the css files, my dashboard ui crashes. The url can either not be loaded (plugin not found) or it says, please add some dashboard nodes.
When I disable the statichttp, all returns to normal, but then the files are not loaded. The dashboard UI page will start working again, but without a fully configured dashboard.
I have the fealing that when I configure the static path, the dashboard-ui or node-red is missing critical files to use the dashboard ui.
I tried an alternative solution, which is to find out what the default static path is. I do need to point out that my installation of node-red is a little bit different. I am running a programm called SignalK on a raspberry pi (a marine open standard) and use a node red embedded plugin, so the installation directory is not default.
This means I have these folders:
/home/pi/.signalk/red (In here there is no settings.js file, this is managed elsewhere)
/home/pi/.signalk/node_modules/node-red (this does contain a settings.js file, but when editing the httpstatic folder, it doesn't do anything also not after reboot) example:
How settings.js is managed, is through a signalk plugin.
When applying this, the dashboard itself will crash.
I have also asked the developers of Signalk, but I just wanted to try if anyone in here has any other ideas of what is happening.
