/home/pi/.node-red/node_modules/.... I have copied those changes to a fork of the node on github.
However, I then set about seeing if I could add a config option to the companion .js and .html file. All I did was try to add a select list. First I tried a dynamic select list using
oneditprepare, but not only did I not see the list appear in the node's edit panel, I don't even see the label or any indication that I've changed the html file at all.
I restarted my whole raspberry pi and still I see no differences. I understand I'm probably not using a proper development strategy, but is there a way to make changes to the node's edit interface show?
The node is still functioning properly and still reflects the changes I made to server.js.
That asked, what's the best way to tinker with a node's code? Should I create a whole separate copy somehow and give it a different name? How do I deploy changes for testing?
