How to use global variables

Modified on Mon, 06 Sep 2021 at 10:30 AM

Inside function node's code the general lua rules apply:

In LuvitRED there is an additional way to use global or flow wide variables. Using this method a variable can be accessed from within every function node.

By using the prefix global, the variable will be stored in RAM with the key following the prefix (separated by a . ). This method is identical to using the 'global store' node to store a variable to RAM, and both can be used together. 


function block 1
global.variable = msg.payload

function block 2
if global.variable ~= nil then
    msg.payload = global.variable
return msg

The attached flow demonstrates the use of the multiple ways to store/retrieve variables in LuvitRED.
