Running node-red flows without node-red?

first of all, I would like to apologize for this absolute beginner question, but I can not find a suitable answer. If I have developed a program with Node-RED, can I continue to develop the generated javascript code without Node-Red or run it without Node-Red or is the runtime always required? So my intention would be to first develop the basic framework with Node-Red and then manually customize the code. Would that be possible? Thanks for your help


Node-RED doesn't do code generation. The application you develop is stored in a JSON format that the Node-RED runtime interprets and runs.

In other words, to run a Node-RED flow, you need the Node-RED runtime
