I want to create few subnetworks and then use them in another projects. Is there way to export and then import such created subnetworks in nodebox 3 ? I mean i want to create my own node (without using python, just creating a subnetworks from core nodes) and use it in another projects. I was looking in the documentation and on the forum but didnt find how to do it. Could you help me with it ?

    Unfortunately, this is not supported yet. Custom nodes currently can only be implemented in code.

    A (dirty) workaround is to copy-paste your custom nodes from your master document. However, that means that changes to the master do not automatically propagate to the "instances".

    I've created an issue that tracks this:

    I am also very interested on this functionality.
    Is there any progress on it?

    We're working on supporting this functionality in NodeBox Live, the online version of NodeBox. That means the functionality in version 3 will lag behind a bit.
