Where is settings.js with docker default config?

Installed nodered via docker using the following command on an Ubuntu 18.04 system, but I can't seem to find the settings.js.

docker run -it -p 1880:1880 -v node_red_data:/data --name mynodered nodered/node-red

Where is this


folder located, so that I can access the settings.js file?

It is actually mounted in the root filesystem as /data. I order to see where it is:

docker run -it --rm nodered/node-red:latest /bin/bash

Once in the container perform ls -hal and you will see the data directory in the root filesystem of the container

This starts NodeRed in a verbose mode, showing

[info] Settings file : /data/settings.js

Can you elaborate on how to get into the container?

cd /data

gives an error, that the folder doesn't exist.

sorry my bad

docker run -d --name=nodered nodered/node-red:latest

This will bring node-red container called nodered up and you can now perform

docker exec -it nodered /bin/bash

This will drop you in the shell of the container and you can perform your required operations accordingly.

If you just want the contents of the settings.js file and don't want to login into container

docker run --rm nodered/node-red:latest cat /data/settings.js

Somehow that also started NodeRed in verbose mode, and nothing else.

But, I found a way to get access:

sudo docker exec -t -i mynodered /bin/bash
nano /data/settings.js
