Dear craigcurtin :

Thanks for ur reply,
Cause I cant find it, Maybe keyword is not good!

Thank u.

The Node-RED Dashboard UI is created by the flows you have running in Node-RED. You cannot have the Dashboard UI without Node-RED.

But you can disable the Node-RED editor - look in your settings.js file, find the disableEditor setting. Uncomment it and set it to true.

When you restart node-red, the editor will not available, but the dashboard will be.

You may also want to change the ui setting so the dashboard is served from / rather than the default ui.

Dear knollearly :

Thanks for ur reply.
ok,I see.
And I just want it be like A.exe file,
Just run A that it can run alone.

Thank u.

You can make a .cmd or .bat file to run node-red when double clicked.

Or create a shortcut link to the node-red command (which you will find if you type where node-red in a cmd terminal)

Dear Steve-Mcl :

I just hope just only UI Is like A.exe
But it seems cant be...

Thank u.

you can also create a shortcut to the UI

Drag the link from your browser to desktop


BUT - as Nick said, Node-RED MUST be running (because dashboard cannot work without node-red)

Dear Steve-Mcl :

Yeah, It seems only can do like u say.

Thank u.

You could try one of the many Node-RED Electron packaging projects.

Like this one: Dashboard as electron app

That should come close to a stand-alone app.

Dear kuema :
