Where does Node-Red save it's definitions ("Nodes") - on what directory location is the .xml (or .json) file?

Hi there

I can see where it is on Linux (Raspbian), but i can't find it on Windows 10 Pro x64...

Somewhere on ´C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\node-red´ ?

Maybe somebody can help me?

Thank you very much. :slight_smile:

With best regards,

I don't use Windows, so ignore this if someone else shows up, but I thought it was in c:/Users/user_name/.node-red
Since the folder starts with a dot it may be hidden by default, you may need to enable Show Hidden Files.

@colin is correct on WIndows (with backslashes the "right" way around of course :slight_smile:

That is where Node-RED itself ends up if you install it globally.

That is where it ends up if you don't move it somewhere else, yes.

Actually, Colin is correct in that Windows has been happy with forward slashes for many years. :grinning:


Is this going to be a 5min or the full half-hour?


In a bunch, in a bunch!!

Now i remember, on Linux it's the same... on user profile as a hidden folder...
