Hi & Welcome

New Node-Red Releases

There have been two node-red releases since late July.

The 2.0 release introduced quite a few new features,I think that the two most important ones are:

  • inject now
  • flow debugger

Inject Now

Up until now if you changed a value in the inject node you would need to redeploy the flow before you could inject the new value.

Node-red 2.0 now lets you edit the node inject node and inject the new value without having to redeploy.

The button is in the right hand corner as show below:


Flow Debugger

This is a node that you need to install and activate. Once activated you can set breakpoints in the flow and the flow will pause at the breakpoints.

A screen shot is shown below


You can find more details here

I also did a video here

Version 2.1

This version has just been released and you can find all of the details here.

From my perspective the changes introduced in the MQTT nodes are the most important and long overdue.


I started a project on my smart home site that you may find useful as it is about using node-red to control Tasmota switches.

There are currently three videos> I created a prject page to keep all the videos in one plave and as well as to add supplementary material.

See Tasmota Node-red project


Just a reminder that I have several books available on Kindle.

Let me know what you think and what else you would find useful. Again please use the suggestions page

Best Regards
