Importing supershape in nodebox3

I've downloaded the supershape library that is supposed to have been ported for Nodebox 3, but I can't seem to figure out how I exactly add it to my Nodebox 3-installation. Does anybody have any clues for me?

    Do you have a link to the library? I don't remember creating a supershape library for NodeBox 3.

    Hm, weird. I found this post indicating you had ported it:

    I'm such a noob. I see now that I could just open the project in Nodebox. But it's not clear to me how I can reuse the nodes in other projects without always opening this project as a base.

    Btw, sorry for not posting this in the right forum. You can probably move this thread to a more appropriate subforum.

    There is no easy way to do that at the moment. NodeBox files are actually projects, so it would be possible in the future to set up a sort of dependency chain between projects (actually, that already happens with the built-in projects).

    This is an approach that we use in NodeBox Live, however NodeBox 3 currently doesn't have support for this. So you'll have to import the library code in your project, then copy over the node.
