Create a Node Library for Dynamo

If you're interested in developing a Node library for Dynamo, the easiest place to start is by browsing the DynamoSamples. These samples use the Dynamo NuGet packages which can be installed using the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio.

Documentation of the Dynamo API via with a searchable index of public API calls for core functionality in the dynamo nuget packages. WIP.

The API Changes document explains changes made to the Dynamo API with every version.

Build Dynamo from Source

You will need the following to build the latest Dynamo on Windows:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 (any edition)
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 (included with Visual Studio 2022)
  • Node.js v16 and npm v8
    • Download and install the latest LTS version of Node.js
    • Open up your Command Prompt and check you have successfully installed Node by inputting node -v. If you have Node installed, it will tell you the version.
  • GitHub for Windows
  • For runnning Dynamo tests within Visual Studio -NUnit Test Adapter 2

If you are working on legacy branches, you may need to install legacy .NET Framework versions through Visual Studio Tools > Get Tools and Features... or downloading from the archive here.

The Dynamo user interface is Windows-only, but with some extra effort the Dynamo engine can be built for other platforms. Directions for building Dynamo on Linux or OS X can be found here. Find more about how to build Dynamo at our wiki and Dynamo Developer Resources


Dynamo is an open-source project and would be nothing without its community. You can make suggestions or track and submit bugs via Github issues. You can submit your own code to the Dynamo project via a Github pull request.
