This component allows you to describe and execute complex processes. Unlike symfony/workflow, the logic is tied to node and the code resides in node processors.

// Create flow (step order is important)
$flow = new Flow('flow', ['label' => 'Automation']);
// Step 1: add blocks
$flow->addNode(new Node('block1', 'start'))
$flow->addNode(new Node('block2', 'process'))
$flow->addNode(new Node('block3', 'stop'))
// Step 2: add blocks ports
$flow->addPort(new Port('port1', Port::TYPE_O, 'block1'));
$flow->addPort(new Port('port2', Port::TYPE_I, 'block2'));
$flow->addPort(new Port('port3', Port::TYPE_O, 'block2'));
$flow->addPort(new Port('port4', Port::TYPE_I, 'block3'));
// Step 3: link blocks ports
$flow->addLink(new Link('link1', 'port1', 'port2'));
$flow->addLink(new Link('link2', 'port3', 'port4'));

// For ensure flow is executable you can run validation
