Just weeks ago, we at FlowForge announced our plan to develop a successor to the Node-RED Dashboard. Today, we're excited to reveal the pre-alpha release of this highly anticipated project, bringing us one step closer to a new era of data visualization in Node-RED.
This will always be a problem because the node-red instance is single tenant itself. That said, if you stick to certain practices like using a form for data input, it can be achieved.
The template node now supports forms and form elements so your editing is completely isolated from other users accessing the dashboard. Your flows would need to avoid using context as race conditions can occur.
Thanks @Steve. Is there special support for form elements in template nodes, or are you referring to using standard HTML input controls in <form></form> sections?
I use the template node extensively for multi-user dashboard functionality and wrote a document (for my development teams) on how to use template nodes for multi-user UI, with user-scoped messaging to/from other Node-red nodes. Will you be willing to review this document for correctness, then we can share it with the Node-red community?
