Cannot see custom nodes after updating from 0.236.2 to 1.0.5

Describe the problem/error/question

Hello, I updated my n8n package globally from version 0.236.2 to 1.0.5.

What is the error message (if any)?

I can’t see my custom nodes that I was developing on the 0.236.2 version anymore.

Please share your workflow


I have redone linking but still the same issue.

Is there a fix for this?

Thank you!

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.0.5
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): npm
  • Operating system: MAC

@alexnemes are you linking the custom nodes folder into n8n’s node_modules folder?
If yes, Can you please try linking it inside the $HOME/.n8n/custom folder instead ?

Yes I was linking into the node_modules folder, like this:


What exactly is the path for the new folder $HOME/.n8n/custom where I should link to?

Can you please try this:

cd ~/.n8n
mkdir -p nodes
cd nodes
