Create other dashboard in node red

Hello everyone, I will put you in context, I have a project already done in node red, I have my flows and my board already done, it is a big project, but I want to do another project, practically have another board without damaging my existing project (since my board contains color settings, clock, favicon, etc), sometimes I think that I must have the red node installed on another device to be able to do another project, which I think would not be practical, thanks in advance

May be you can use the project functionality of NodeRed. So you can do several projects with the same installation.

Depending on the needs, maybe buy a Pi and use it for the new project???

How does it work or how is that functionality activated? this is the first time i hear about it!!!

the idea is that in a single device to have several projects it would not be convenient to buy a raspberry pi for each project :c

in settings.js you can enable the project functionality:

        projects: {
            /** To enable the Projects feature, set this value to true */
            enabled: true,
            workflow: {
                /** Set the default projects workflow mode.
                 *  - manual - you must manually commit changes
                 *  - auto - changes are automatically committed
                 * This can be overridden per-user from the 'Git config'
                 * section of 'User Settings' within the editor
                mode: "manual"

I already have an existing project, with this configuration can I save my existing project? or just create new projects? :open_mouth:

Try to create a new one. The you should be able to switch to the existing one. The project functionality is part of the editor theme. Further information you can see here: Projects : Node-RED

In reality just a new directory is created where a new flow.json is created. You can always save at least your existing flow. json to save your flow.

Good now I know about that functionality, thank you very much :slight_smile:

Another thing is you could install another copy of node red on your device and use that for the new project. I believe that there is a thread by @TotallyInformation about this.

About the ā€˜projectsā€™ option (I use it all the time) only one project will be running at a time so if your current flows are gathering data or controlling other devices, all that will stop.
