I’ve started to use n8n just recently and I’m absolutely amazed by many unique ideas compared to other automation tools.
Function node in particular is great, however it may be a bit tedious to perform data wrangling in JS.
From my opinion, JS is just simply not the best tool for that. Speaking of “best tool” for data wrangling, there are several other options like SAS and R. As a data analyst by trade, I use them all the time and recently came across one interesting JS project that tries to unite these “worlds”:
I wanted to ask whether it’s possible to use tidy.js in n8n workflows? I’m thinking primarily about writing custom code in function node, but maybe some custom nodes can also be created. My experience in docker \ JS is very modest, so I was able to follow instructions and install n8n via docker-compose. But I have no idea how one can connect some “external” JS framework to n8n.
Hope my question makes sense and some steps can be done even without any official support of tidy.js
