Specify location for your custom nodes#

Every user can add custom nodes that get loaded by n8n on startup. The default location is in the subfolder .n8n/custom of the user who started n8n.

You can define more folders with an environment variable:

export N8N_CUSTOM_EXTENSIONS="/home/jim/n8n/custom-nodes;/data/n8n/nodes"
Refer to Environment variables reference for more information on this variable.
