The KNIME Hub offers extensive functionalityto easily search, share, and collaborate on KNIME workflows, nodes, and components with the entire KNIME community.
Public & Private Spaces
Share and organize your workflows and components on the KNIME Hub. Just create an account (or use your existing KNIME.com account) and log in to the newly added My-KNIME-Hub Mountpoint. This is available with KNIME Analytics Platform 4.0.
After you’ve logged in, you’ll see two spaces: public and private. Workflows and components uploaded to your public space are publicly available and therefore shared with the entire KNIME community. Workflows and components uploaded to your private space (maximum 1GB) are only visible to you from KNIME Analytics Platform 4.0.
This means you can organize, save, and access your work in one easy-to-access location.
The search on the KNIME Hub enables you to find answers to all your KNIME related questions. The search looks for nodes, extensions, components, and workflows (among our own KNIME example workflows and components as well as workflows and components built by you: the community) and displays detailed information: e.g. where to find a specific node, links to documentation.
On Windows you can directly open the workflow by clicking the
Open workflow button. This
automatically downloads and opens the workflow in KNIME Analytics Platform. On other operating systems,
Download workflow to open it in KNIME Analytics Platform.
Drag & Drop
To use a node, component, or install a new extension you’ve found on the KNIME Hub, simply drag & drop them from the KNIME Hub into your running KNIME Analytics Platform.
Workflow Metadata Editor
Each workflow in KNIME Analytics Platform comes with some metadata attached to it, which is also displayed and used for searching on the KNIME Hub. Workflow metadata not only helps documenting your workflows but also makes it easy for others to quickly find and understand them. You can now more easily edit this metadata with the Workflow Metadata Editor view in KNIME Analytics Platform, which you can see in the Description view of KNIME Analytics Platform after you have selected a workflow in the KNIME Explorer.
KNIME Hub Search Bar in KNIME Analytics Platform
We have integrated the KNIME Hub Search into KNIME Analytics Platform. Just enter your search query and hit
enter. This opens a browser window and displays the search results. By default, the search bar is displayed
Node Description view. Otherwise, open the
KNIME Hub view by
selecting it from the
View drop down menu at the top.
