The Node graph is your main tool to build modules in BRYTER's editor. The editor is the main no-code programming environment. You can connect Input Nodes, Actions, Values, Integrations and Results using Transitions. It allows you to arrange the order of your Nodes, to build conditional logic and to determine the order of execution of your Actions. For example, when creating a document and adding it as an attachment to an email, your Create document Action needs to be above your Send email Action. Furthermore, the Node graph provides you with various navigation and Node creation options.
Navigate the graph
Click and drag on the canvas to navigate through the graph. Use the mouse wheel to quickly scroll up and down. You can also zoom in and out by pressing the plus and minus icons in the navigation area. Once you have zoomed in or out the graph, you can reset the view by pressing the frame icon between the zoom controls. Searching for a node label is also possible by using the keyboard shotcut Strg + F or Command + F.
Adding or inserting Nodes
To add a new Node under your selected one, just click on the plus icon. A list of possible Node types will pop up so you can choose your desired Node type. Once you click on it, it will be placed under a Node or next to an existing Node. If you want to place a Node above an existing one, just move your mouse over the upper transition and wait until a plus icon appears. When you click on it, you can create a Node above the existing one.
Once a new Node is added, the graph will automatically change its layout for better readability.
Press the delete key on your keyboard, click on the delete button (in red text) in the bottom right corner of the editor, or use the context menu to delete an existing Node.
Copy and paste Nodes
You can select Nodes and use the copy and paste commands in the context menu. When using shortcuts select one or multiple Nodes first and press CTRL-C (CMD-C on a Mac) to copy Nodes. Select a Node anywhere in the graph and press CTRL-V (CMD-V on a Mac) to paste Nodes.
Undo and Redo
To revert to a previous version, click on the arrows in the bottom left corner. If it is not possible to go more steps back, revert to a previous version of your Module using the History feature.
If you want to look up a node, you can use the quick find glass by clicking on the magnifying glass in the lower right corner. You can also invoke the icon with CTRL+shift+f (CMD+shift+f on a Mac) and search items like node labels, node notes or transition titles.
After entering the search term into the search bar, authors can see how many matches were identified and search results are highlighted in green on the graph when found. Clicking on the 'next' and 'previous' buttons will navigate the author through the returned search results on the graph.
