very impressive what pyflow can do in the next version. I will start rebase for my FreeCAD version soon.
IMO it would probably be best to make the rebase on this new version and just focus on getting it in the addon manager for easy installation (or do you plan to get it in the master directly?). Adding individual nodes and extending its functionality will in the long term in anyway depend highly on the community, so even if we start with only "five" nodes, just get it in the hands of the users...
I was for some time having a bit of a doubt if pyflow is the right way to go forward with for the nodes implementation for FreeCAD (there are a few similar opensource tools available and I just never did or saw any deeper comparison of them to be able to have a clear decision), but seeing now from https://wonderworks-software.github.io/PyFlow/
that it has support for Subgraphs, Python node and import/export, it indeed looks like a very solid package. I find this functionalities extremely important for building a strong ecosystem around it, similar to grasshopper apps
and dynamo packages
, so for example, in our addon manager, additionally to our existing workbenches and macros we could have a third tab with node extensions...
by the way, pyflow is now on patreon https://www.patreon.com/pyflow
