Enable the animate mode, and move your mouse around in the render view.
I want to fork the NodeBox source code and add mouse interaction feature. But it is a little trouble for me to build the compiling environment. Part of compiling tools can not be downloaded when I tried to compile the NodeBox source code last time.

    Cool! This is an interesting exploration.

    I am glad to see you experimenting with custom nodes. In this example and the one you posted yesterday, however, the nodes you made are easy to do within NodeBox.

    For example, attached is a simple Nodebox network that replicates your basic interaction without the need for custom nodes.

    I am excited by the idea of forking NodeBox. This requires more coding skills than I possess, so I wish you luck. If you did manage the fork, what would your forked version do differently?

    I can think of MANY changes I would like to see in a forked NodeBox. Please keep us posted as you feel your way through this challenge.

    Using free hand node and related node network I can snap a point by mouse. Refer to the screenshot.

    I found I can just place a point node and move the handler to achieve the same purpose.
