I want to create a new file i using the fs function. I get the following error “ReferenceError: fs is not defined” . I tried that but error persists https://flows.nodered.org/flow/cdf160c36f082dc2a20cd1183ac6cd7d.
Have you followed the instructions in that example flow to add
functionGlobalContext in your settings file?
yes do i need to download fs via npm?
fs is a built-in node.js module, you don’t have to install anything else.
I see there is a typo in that example. It sets the
fs property in
functionGlobalContext, but then in the Function node it does:
var fs = global.get('fs1') - note the
fs1. That should match the property name set in
If you’ve copied that code without checking it, then you’ll have the same typo in your code.
Thank you Nick for the constant support in the forums.
