Using custom nodes in production

Hi all,

what’s the recommended approach to add a custom node to n8n in a production deployment? I want to create the node as npm module (GitHub - n8n-io/n8n-nodes-starter: Example starter module for custom n8n nodes.), do I have to rebuild the docker image?

Best regards,

It is probably easiest if you extend the existing image by additionally installing your npm package with the custom nodes.
Here a different discussion that explains how additional npm modules can be added:

Hope that is helpful!
