Get selected nodes class

import os
import NatronEngine
from NatronGui import *

def getSelectedNodesClass():

    # get current Natron instance running in memory
    app = natron.getGuiInstance(0)

    # get selected nodes
    selectedNodes = app.getSelectedNodes()

    # cycle through every selected node
    for currentNode in selectedNodes:

        # get current node class
        currentID = currentNode.getPluginID()

        # write node class in console
        os.write(1,'\n' + str(currentID) + '\n')

This script can now be saved in a .py file and added to Natron using the addMenuCommand(grouping,function) function in the file.

It can also be can executed directly in Natron’s script editor by adding:


at the end of the script.
