n8n App


n8n Free and open fair-code licensed node based Workflow Automation Tool.

Custom env

Custom environment variables can be set in /app/data/env using the File manager. Be sure to restart the app after making changes.


To set the timezone, set the GENERIC_TIMEZONE environment variable in /app/data/env. Be sure to restart the app after setting the timezone.

Custom node modules

n8n allows using custom node modules. Only the packages available in /app/code/node_modules are available for use. To use a module, edit /app/data/env and add a line like below:

export NODE_FUNCTION_ALLOW_EXTERNAL=handlebars,jsonata

With the above line, we can now use handlebars and jsonata. Restart the app and use the module in Function nodes.

If you require a custom module that is not installed in /app/code/node_modules, please make a post in our forum.
