At the moment I'm building an ui for a solar energy storage with node red modbus contrib. The problem is, that the browser starts getting very lame, when I combine the nodes with a lot of gauges, I think I used about 9 to 12 gauges. At the moment I'm using 159 nodes overall (modbus, dashboard function nodes etc.)
I use the normal write and read nodes, but there are these flex nodes. I know how to use them (with additional function node), but wil they give me a performance boost ?
The ui is now usable again, because I switched the gauges with text output, but this is actually not as I want it. I want to add another storage via TCP/IP and another one via RS232 (just the bms). I think, that this all together will kill my dashboard or at least the browser. Is it, just if there is no other oppertunity, possible to build an own program like an executable which uses my node-red code or do i have to code all precoded nodes by myself ?
And my third question: How can I move Groups in the UI ? I took a map (for the locations of the energy storage containers) and set it as a backgroundpicture with css, but I don't know how to move groups so that I can use parameters I got from modbus, tcp/ip or rs232 and show on the map, where I got the values from. When I try to use spacers, they will block the background picture.
Sorry for that massive text, but maybe someone has already made some experience with these problems. Thank you for your time
