After upgrading from version 1.3.5 to version 2.0.5 (which went fine), I decided to try the new features, like the debugger, lint and Monaco editor. All looks fine and I think it is a enormous step forward for Node Red. Compliments to developers.
I tried the Lint on my existing flows. Some of them run already for 2 -3 years without any issues.
The majority of the indicated errors were nodes not aligned to the grid. That is easy to solve.
However I have now 8 errors left, indicating "loop detected".
Part of the flow looks as follows:
This flow has to scrape a webpage and I'm interested in two elements, which are extracted from the HTML code. In order to join them later in a "Join" node, I added 2 "Change" nodes to set each topic, to be used in the "Join" node.
I do not know a simpler solution to avoid the "Lint" error.
The other "loop detected" errors are all similar, two branches, that are joined.
Is this the intended behavior and if so, can it be avoided?
