a short summary of what I want:
I Have severeal units in my company which are sending data via MQTT
In the UI I have three different "views" = tabs.
In tabs I have different groups.
MOBIL (one TAB containing all units in different groups)
Displaying a gauge and a button per unit for all units. It is an overview of all units I have. One group per division.
DIVISION (one TAB per Division, one group)
More or less the same (a few more information about the unit) as MOBIL but only the units belonging to the division.
DETAIL (one TAB and group per UNIT)
Detailed information about the unit.
Especially in the DETAIL View I do about 30 times the same and I have one flow per unit.
Currently I am doing a redesign of the whole thing because I am getting more units I want to handle and it gets complicated to have so many flows doing the same.
Waht my redesign does:
I have one flow getting the MQTTs, doing calculations and whatever I want to prepare the data.
I have a subflow which should do all the UI part. For each unit I start one instance of the subflow.
So far so good.
I have two major issues from having the prfect solution for me:
First one is "design of UI Widget in Subflows" which is hopefully fixed if this project gets done. https://github.com/node-red/designs/pull/24
Second one is (and this is my question / feature request), that I need to be able to assign TAB and GROUP dynamically to the Ui Widgets (e.g. Button. Gauge, Chart, Template, etc.). Of course I would need to have the tabs and Groups to be set up in dashboard, which would be fine for me.
Did someone have had the same situation or is it worth to discuss a feature request?
Thanks and best regards
