No Essential Nodes (KNIME 3.7.1)

Hey guys,

This is Geoffrey Ashok. I’m new here and I don’t have any basic idea about web development.

I am an SEO Specialist and installed KNIME to learn automation to make work easier. It’s awesome to see so many nice people helping each other here.

I have a problem and need your help.

I installed KNIME 3.7.1 Analytics Platform for Windows (zip archive) and was looking for nodes like Google Analytics Query, Twitter API Connector, Twitter Search, and WebSearcher but I could not find any.

I tried Google Search and cannot find an answer to this issue.

Please, can somebody help me to find/download nodes like Google Analytics Query, Twiter API Connector and other ones?

I really appreciate all help as I explore more development and automation.

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

First of all welcome to the forum! We’re all happy to help when we can.

The Google and Twitter nodes you’re looking for are part of the KNIME Twitter & Google Connectors extension.
To install these go to file > Install KNIME extensions then search for the KNIME Twitter & Google extension.

Check the box and click through next to go ahead and get those installed. After that’s all done you’ll see them in your node repository like all the standards nodes.

The Web Searcher looks like it is no longer maintained although it is part of the Palladian for KNIME extension. Which you can install in the same way.

Let me know if you need any more help getting up and running!



Thanks a lot, Corey! Really appreciate you taking the time out to help :slight_smile:



I am part of the Palladian team and would like to shed some light on the problem with the Palladian Web Searcher. The node was providing access to different search engines and was capable of retrieving results from them. Unfortunately search engine APIs and usage conditions have changed quite frequently. Since Palladian is an Open Source, hobby project at the moment, we do not have the time to keep up with those changes.
So instead of providing a broken node all the time we decided to stop maintenance.

If you face the problem of finding nodes again, you might consider using our Node search engine NodePit. Clicking a search result there also provides you with the update site to install it from, as explained in the previous post from @Corey.
