Colored and Custom route pipes

The idea is: Custom pipe colors and routing.

It would be nice if we could change the colour and the routing of the pipes that connect the nodes. As my workflows get more and more complicated and I see similar things on other community members’ complex workflows, having the ability to not only colour the pipes leading to other nodes but also modify where they route rather than them just auto-routing a certain way could help clean up workflows and make organising a workflow for newer members a bit less intimidating! Something more like what comfyUI for stable diffusion does. They have multiple options for how the pipes route and an option to colour each one independently. This provides a space to divide up different sections of workflows.

My use case:

I will share one of my workflows in the first comment. I will run out of characters here.

I think it would be beneficial to add this because:

It will give the ability to 1. Divide up the workflow to better show clients and other team members different sections of the workflow. 2. It could help other community members who post on the forum for help with workflow issues diagnose what that workflow does and when. Giving a clearer picture of what the workflow does. Leading to issues being solved faster.

Any resources to support this?

This is just an image to show a better explanation of the concept that comfyUI uses.

Are you willing to work on this?

I would be willing to work on this. I may not have the skills to do this but I also couldn’t read or write JS or Python 3 months ago :slight_smile:

Here is an simple example workflow where I feel this feature would benefit the most. When passing this onto a client with little to no knowledge of automation most will run for the hills.
