Paul Wintour has created a 15 page document that outlines the differences and similarities between some Grasshopper and Dynamo Nodes. If you know one of the programs but not the other, this may be a good place to start…

From Parametric Monkey:
To assist Rhino users in becoming acquainted with Dynamo, I have produced a ‘Dynamo for Grasshopper Users‘ primer. Since everything is a little different in Dynamo, the primer provides a list of ‘translations’ in order to find a comparable node/component.
If you want to learn about Dynamo and collaborate with like-minded users, check out these LinkedIn Groups:
Dynamo / DynamoBIM: Graphical Programming for Design
Dynamo for Revit
Subtitle: Development opportunities and future scenarios with ‘Dynamo’
This 155 page document is very detailed and covers a number of interesting topics, including:
- Fundamentals of graphic programming, such as History of graphical programming
- Graphical programming with Dynamo, including technological challenges and Future of Dynamo
- Survey results
Full credit to Thomas Michael Vogt for his work on this Thesis.

There are a number of efforts out there that share some of the purpose of Dynamo Nodes. For instance, the Dynamo Primer lists details of certain core nodes, as does Enjoy Revit for list actions.
Obviously, Dynamo Nodes aims to be a unified portal for Nodes, which includes Custom and Core Nodes, along with the opportunity to Search, Tag, Rate, and Comment on specific nodes and their use.
A similar indexing or glossary effort was undertaken by Thomas Vogt, and his work has been collected in a Node Book for Dynamo. You can download the Node Book for Dynamo v2 at:
I would sincerely encourage anyone who wants to work on a glossary or index like this to contact me and I will invite you as a Contributor here on Dynamo Nodes. If we work together we will be able to make and maintain the best resource for Dynamo Nodes on the web.
Quote from Thomas Vogt:
This is a new version of the node book, but I have no time to completely finish it. Maybe some of you can use it anyway for something… https://www.dropbox.com/s/vlbo5axawtllgpk/Node-Book_for_Dynamo_v2.xlsx?dl=0
