Hi @Tk8and15, tbh I am surprised they don’t show up in the sidebar, seeing your custom nodes are already on the canvas and thus available to the instance. Mabye our resident node builder @marcus knows more here?

Hey @Tk8and15,
by default your custom node should be visible in the MISCELLANOUS category of the sidebar and should also appear when you search for the node.

If you want to customize in what category your node appears you can add a codex json file next to your node. The HttpBin node in our n8n-nodes-starter has an example codex file.
