Can't install custom node

Describe the problem/error/question

npm link n8n-node-friendgrid

This command can’t link the node, ~/.n8n/nodes (or /usr/lib/node_modules/n8n/nodes are both mannuly created) directory is empty. And also , i can’t find friendgrid node when i select the node.

I follow this document (Tutorial: Build a programmatic-style node | n8n Docs) step by step , but with no success.

What is the error message (if any)?

Hi @sheng_zhou :wave: Welcome to the community :tada:

Maybe our resident node-builder @marcus could help you out with this? :smile:

Hey @sheng_zhou,

Can you share the commands you ran and the paths you ran them in? I just gave it a quick go with some of my nodes and it was working as expected.

hey @sheng_zhou did you run npm link n8n-node-friendgrid from inside the ~/.n8n/nodes folder ?
