Install via Update Site

After starting KNIME, go to File → Preferences → Install/Update → Available Software Sites, click on Add… and paste the update site. Make sure the update site matches your current KNIME version.

In order to install nodes behind a firewall or proxy server, most developers also provide update sites as ZIP archives for download. If a zipped update site is available, NodePit will also list this in the Installation section in the side bar on each product and node page. In order to install nodes from a zipped update site file, add a new update site by hitting the Archive… button and select the downloaded ZIP file. Attention: Keep in mind, that you will have to take care of keeping your installation up-to-date by manually downloading new versions regularly.

Add Software Site

Once added, save and close the preferences window, choose File → Install KNIME Extensions… and select the product's name for installation. Follow the instructions and restart KNIME when prompted to do so. After a successful installation, you will find the freshly installed nodes in your Node Repository.

You might see a warning regarding missing signing/certificates. You can safely ignore this. Most community developers of free and open source products do not sign their products to avoid large costs for acquiring certificates.
