Example Nodes

The Ultimate Node Template to Boost Your Node Development!

The Example Nodes is a small node extension that contains all of our learnings and best practices from developing various of famous node plugins over a couple of years – e.g. Palladian Nodes, Selenium Nodes, Dropbox Nodes and many more.

The Example Nodes is your head start for developing KNIME nodes. It has never been so easy to start a new node project, upload your extension to NodePit and distribute it with our thousands of users – may it be for commercial or free use.

Using the Example Nodes as a blueprint for your own node project, you benefit from all of our learnings as we provide you already production-ready solutions for various challenges every node developer faces. Thus, don't struggle with the basics, but focus on the business logic of your extension!

Starting your own node project based on the Example Nodes brings you a lot of benefits:

  • Project Structure: A clean project structure that organizes your code into plugin, test, feature and update site modules.
  • Support for Maven Tycho: Build, test and package your extension with just one command.
  • Workflow Tests: Automatically test your nodes during build time using real workflows in a real KNIME Analytics Platform.
  • CI/CD Pipelines: Use pre-configured CI/CD pipelines for Github and Gitlab.
  • License Management: Commercialize your extension by adding our license module to your extension and enforce your users to purchase and enter a valid license to make your nodes executing.
  • Distribution via NodePit: Automatically upload and distribute your update site via NodePit. Your nodes are indexed and available to thousands of users. Create and update your customizable product page, changelog and more information on NodePit.
