Thanks for your help, I was able to get the Node Red working with MQTT from ESP8266 for my project.
However, I have a question: How do I save that UI lay out? I dont want to create again and again…is there a way to export/store that Node-Red dashboard, and bring it up when I want?
What do you mean? Save all your Node-RED Nodes configurations?
You can export your Node-RED nodes and import them to your new Node-RED installation: https://rntlab.com/module-13/exporting-node-red-nodes/
Got it. Thanks Rui. I was hoping we can select all in one shot…but I guess we need to export one collection of connected nodes at a time.
Additionally, I’d like to know if we can arrange the outputs “dashboard” widgets (like the text boxes, gauges) in some fashion/order we like?
If you actually drag your mouse and select all your nodes, you can export/import all of the at once (if they are in the same flow, of course).
