Enable projects for using github is not working

I want to use GitHub within Node-Red and configured the file settings.js in this way:

    editorTheme: {
        projects: {
            enabled: true

After stopping and starting node-red i see that this doesn't work:

Starting as a systemd service.

Do anyone now what the problem is?

We need to check the basic things first, did you edit the correct settings.js file?
Even more basic, did you remember to save the file before restarting node-red? On numerous occasions I have edited a file and left it open and unsaved in the editor and then been confused when my (non)changes haven't had any effect.
Another thing to watch out for if you are working via ssh or similar, if you have multiple Pis that you edited the file on the correct Pi and restarted the correct Pi. Again a mistake I have made myself.

Hi Colin,

thank you a lot for your answer, that solved my problem!

I googled and find information that i should change this file:


But now, while you gave me the right path: /home/pi/.node-red/settings.js is is working now!

Thank you very much for your help
