I used it and it crashed my system, node-red would constantly restart.giving mongdb errors So there was no way to get back to node-red.. stop-restart. reboot.. same thing
I stopped node-red and removed the modules directories mongodb and mongodb-core because I could not do it from node-red.
(should have stopped mongodb instead ???)
if I try to remove mongo :
and nothing in the log except :
