Trigger an event when Node-Red starts, but not on deploy

I'd like to trigger an event when NR first starts, but I don't want to get it each time I hit 'deploy'. "Inject with init" node does the latter, unfortunately.

not if you deploy modified nodes only ...

(unless of course you modify the inject node!)


There is other solutions - e.g. you could use memory based context to "remember" you have triggered a flow.

True. Thanks.
