n8n - Workflow automation tool
n8n is an extendable workflow automation tool. With a fair-code distribution model, n8n will always have visible source code, be available to self-host, and allow you to add your own custom functions, logic and apps. n8n's node-based approach makes it highly versatile, enabling you to connect anything to everything.
📺 A short video (< 5 min) that goes over key concepts of creating workflows in n8n.
n8n has 200+ different nodes to automate workflows. The list can be found on: https://n8n.io/integrations
The official n8n documentation can be found on our documentation website
Additional information and example workflows on the n8n.io website
You can try n8n without installing it using npx. You must have Node.js installed. From the terminal, run:
This command will download everything that is needed to start n8n. You can then access n8n and start building workflows by opening http://localhost:5678.
Sign-up for an n8n cloud account.
While n8n cloud and n8n are the same in terms of features, n8n cloud provides certain conveniences such as:
- Not having to set up and maintain your n8n instance
- Managed OAuth for authentication
- Easily upgrading to the newer n8n versions
Build with LangChain and AI in n8n (beta)
With n8n's LangChain nodes you can build AI-powered functionality within your workflows. The LangChain nodes are configurable, meaning you can choose your preferred agent, LLM, memory, and so on. Alongside the LangChain nodes, you can connect any n8n node as normal: this means you can integrate your LangChain logic with other data sources and services.

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'." - Jan Oberhauser, Founder and CEO, n8n.io
