Discussion

This is a purely editor-based node with no interaction with the Node-RED server. The diagram generated is based on the current flow in the editor not the flow that has been deployed. Therefore any changes made in the editor will be reflected in the diagram generated.

This allows for the construction of flows in the editor that can be used for Mermaid diagrams but that are not deployed to the server.
