About n8n

n8n is a free and open node-based Workflow Automation Tool. It can be self-hosted, easily extended, and used with third party web applications or custom in-house tools to automate repetitive tasks. With n8n, for the first time, people can move beyond simple integrations to build multi-step workflows that combine both 3rd party APIs and your own internal tools to create easy to use automations that snap together all the pieces of what would otherwise be very complex, disconnected systems. n8n is headquartered in Berlin and was founded by Jan Oberhauser in 2019.

Our name

It is "n8n" with all lower case letters. It can either be pronounced "n eight n" or "nodemation".

While looking for a good name for the project with a free domain, Jan quickly realized that all the good ones he could think of were already taken. So, in the end, he chose nodemation. 'node-' in the sense that it uses a Node-View and that it uses Node.js and '-mation' for 'automation' which is what the project is supposed to help with. However, he did not like how long the name was and could not imagine writing something that long every time in the CLI. That is when he ended up on 'n8n'.
