If you use the new Git?project BEWARE! Make sure you have backups.
After all the repeated nagging by the UI I decided to create a project last night.
I created a project but quickly gave up because of the lack of documentation and non intuitive interface.
This afternoon I glanced at my home console to find it reset to the default ui-builder page.
Opening the node-red control panel confirms it has completely removed all my local files.
It didn't just overwrite the default files, it removed the svg's and images that I added.
Who thought it was a good idea that opening the control panel should do a silent deploy to production? I'm really struggling to avoid four letter words here.
How do I opt out of the node-red console auto updates?
This update was ill thought out and botched.
The projects mode would only be enabled if you turned it on in your settings file.
If you disable it again and restart Node-RED, then it will go back to using the flows file in your
.node-red directory which should be what you had before you tried creating the project
Instructions for reset:
Login to your node-red server.
sudo vi /home/you/.node-red/settings.js
/** To enable the Projects feature, set this value to true */
/** 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
Change the "enabled" option and reboot
