New on CTAN: simplenodes
Creating TikZ figures may be fun but after a while it becomes repetitive and you find yourself implementing the same repetitive patterns over and over again. This has a few negative effects on your daily productivity; - bad coding style by copy-pasting old solutions, - un-maintainable code, - repeating yourself over and over again, - inconsistent styles in a single document and over multiple documents. This package tries to solve these issues by providing two simple commands; - one command to create simple nodes, - one command to link these nodes. Some simple styling options can be changed upon loading the package. The positioning of the nodes is done by using the tabular environment.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/simplenodes The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/simplenodes/

simplenodes – Simple nodes in four colors written in TikZ for LaTeX
This is a LaTeX macro package for generating simple node-based flow graphs or diagrams built upon the TikZ package. The package provides two basic commands, one to generate a node and one to create links between nodes. The positioning of the nodes is not handled by the package itself but is preferably done in a tabular environment.
In total, four simple node types are defined, loosely based on the nomenclature and color patterns of the popular Java script Bootstrap.
