GIT Integration


What is the recommended way to store my ff application in my git repository?

You don’t.

Node-RED Project’s feature (that uses git) is built into the filesystem storage plugin. FlowForge uses a custom storage plugin that keeps the flows in the FlowForge database.

Features like snapshots are similar to tagging versions in Git and we are continuing to add more features around flow versioning and storing.

Ok, so how do I know my code is safe? If my ff server crashes, it’s all gone?

No, they are safely stored in the database.

I installed Flowforge on my server, is the database automatically installed as well? What database is it?

The localfs build uses SQLite as the database (it can be found in the /opt/flowforge/var directory) and Docker/Kubernetes use PostgreSQL
