In larger projects the need of copy & paste the same functionality (nodes) over and over again is a real pita.
To end this, one possibility would be “ghosts” or “clones”.
A ghost is an instance of the original and has all it’s settings.
It looks like the original, but something has to be different like opacity or the shape line or whatever
Basic needed functions:
- copy node & paste a clone
- edit will change the original - the user must be aware of that - indicated by some kind of info (color, text, …)
- materialize: the ghost gets his own life
Ok, i guess everybody knows the concept - it exists on different levels…it’s just missing in node-red
