About n8n#

n8n (pronounced n-eight-n) helps you to connect any app with an API with any other, and manipulate its data with little or no code.

  • Customizable: highly flexible workflows and the option to build custom nodes.
  • Convenient: use the Desktop app or npm to try out n8n, or the Cloud hosting option if you want us to handle the infrastructure.
  • Privacy-focused: self-host n8n for privacy and security.
