Too many node red instances to keep track

#1

I have a few instances of node red running and I would like to add a simple title to the title bar so I can keep track of which one I'm accessing. Often its just an IP address so having something to show a name would be good.

Is there a config item for this?

The simplest approach would be to add a text string after the Node Red logo and the text, Node-Red.

A better approach would allow the logo and text to be replaced.

Thanks,
Chris.

So changing the favicon and icon would be OK? as per the docs on settings.js

https://nodered.org/docs/configuration see section on Editor Themes

I think a title property in the settings would be a good idea.

It could be displayed as the <title> and as text along side the Node-RED text.

Something like...
nrtitle

I’ve never needed to change it, but isn’t that what the title in the settings.js does?

page: {
        title: "Node-RED",

@ukmoose
I dont have that in my settings.js ?

I do use the --title command kine option when starting node-red but it doesn't modify the title or the <title>

Who knew.

... OK, so @knolleary knew (and the info info was here)

For anyone interested in setting the page title or header title - above image shows what you edit & what you get.

Every day is a school day.

Thanks.
