GraphSCAD node editor using Python which makes OpenSCAD code

This was discussed briefly previously:

https://forum.openscad.org/Graphscad-A-New-Nodal-editor-for-Openscad-td20016.html

and the overall concept a bit more in-depth during the discussion of ClickSCAD:

https://forum.openscad.org/ClikScad-create-OpenSCAD-models-without-all-the-typing-td27474.html

Since then, things have simultaneously stalled and opened up. In particular, the source code for GraphSCAD has been released:

https://github.com/graphscad/graphscad_code

but unfortunately, there hasn't been much interaction --- in particular, user activation on the forum seems to have come to a halt:

https://graphscad.forumotion.com/login

One really interesting thing about GraphSCAD is that developing custom nodes is pretty much expected as a way to extend the program, and a couple of interesting interface options/interactions have been made standard, in particular, Boolean options for Assembled and Debug. The thing which I really wish that it had was an option for writing out additional types of files (yes, I'm still trying to work out how to get G-code out of some tool which I use for 3D modeling).

Has anyone else been using GraphSCAD or is interested in using it? Thoughts on making nodes?

Went ahead and made a subreddit:
