📺 A short demo (< 3 min) which shows how to create a simple workflow which automatically sends a new Slack notification every time a Github repository received or lost a star.
n8n has 100+ different nodes to automate workflows. The list can be found on: https://n8n.io/nodes
The official n8n documentation can be found under: https://docs.n8n.io
Additional information and example workflows on the n8n.io website: https://n8n.io
Create Custom Nodes
It is very easy to create own nodes for n8n. More information about that can be found in the documentation of "n8n-node-dev" which is a small CLI which helps with n8n-node-development.
Additional information can be found on the documentation page.

What does n8n mean and how do you pronounce it?
Short answer: It means "nodemation" and it is pronounced as n-eight-n.
Long answer: I get that question quite often (more often than I expected) so I decided it is probably best to answer it here. While looking for a good name for the project with a free domain I realized very quickly that all the good ones I could think of were already taken. So, in the end, I chose nodemation. "node-" in the sense that it uses a Node-View and that it uses Node.js and "-mation" for "automation" which is what the project is supposed to help with. However, I did not like how long the name was and I could not imagine writing something that long every time in the CLI. That is when I then ended up on "n8n". Sure does not work perfectly but does neither for Kubernetes (k8s) and did not hear anybody complain there. So I guess it should be ok.
