How do I use NodePit Space to share workflows with other users?

Every workflow you save in your public folder is automatically and immediately indexed by NodePit and shows up on our website in section Workflows → NodePit Space → username → public. Browse there, grab the link to your workflow and provide it to your peers. They are able to download your workflow from NodePit.

Uploading a workflow to NodePit Space fails with “Unexpected response (413 Payload Too Large)”. What is going on?

We currently have limited the size of single workflows you are able to upload to 10 megabytes. Once we have made experiences on how you are using NodePit Space, we will modify this file limit or remove at all. For now, you might (1) reset your workflow before uploading and/or (2) remove large files from the workflow folder to reduce the resulting file size.
