How to share code or flow json


To share code samples or flow json in this forum, you need to take care to format it properly so that it is displayed correctly.

The forum provides a few different ways of doing it, but the easiest way to do it is to wrap the code with ``` - three back-tick characters. On standard US English keyboards, this is on the same key as the ~ character.

Here’s an example flow shared by just pasting it in:


Note how the forum has turned the normal " quotes into smart-quotes and . That is no longer valid JSON and cannot be imported. By wrapping the same JSON in backticks:


You can see the quotes remain untouched.

For code from a Function node, first without the backticks:

msg.payload = “Hello There”;
return msg;

And again, with the backticks:

msg.payload = "Hello There";
return msg;

The added syntax highlighting also makes it much easier to read.

Also, (especially larger flows) can now be saved as a txt or json file and uploaded directly to the post.
