Cerbo GX and Node-RED via Venus OS Large: dashboard functions?

Dear Victron-users,

I recently bought a Cerbo GX with touchscreen and after a few days of tweaking I decided I want more, for example a custom dashboard. Installing Venus OS Large was the best solution I was told so I installed it on the Cerbo and activated Node-RED. Via the URL and the specific port I can access Node-Red and put instances on the grid with connections etc. But..... that's where it stops for me ;-). I cannot create a custom dashboard. On all the YouTube films I watched, I see in the left column a submenu "dashboard" with for example gauges etc. but I don't see this menu and when I go to URL/ui I get a error there isn't a GUI. Can someone help me a little bit forward?

Kind regards,

Pim

I don't see this menu below (I saw it in several YouTube tutorials). I do need this do I?

You need to add the dash board Node... Search the web about managing the palette and adding nodes

Thnx, will check this tomorrow. By the way, I suppose I will manage to design a dashboard and make it visible on a webpage but how will it become visible in the Cerbo GX?

Unfortunately it won’t. You will have to access from an external device

That's a pitty.... I hoped to make a custom dashboard to add as an extra dashboard visible in the Victron touch screen but now I understand it's only browserbased / VRM-based. Thanks for you information!
