I'm creating a plugin with gdnative c++.
I created a simple class, compile the library, make a simple script working according to the official example.

Now I want to add my stuff like a custom node. The gdscript editor can complete my class name and access it's property, but I can't see it in the window to add a new node to a scene with [ctrl+a].

How to do that?

Open the Project Settings and click on the Plugins tab. Your plugin should be in the list. If it is not showing, click on the Update button in the top-right corner. Assuming the plugin is inactive on the Status column; click on the status to select Active.

Hm, the problem is not about the plugin not being updated. It's about registering a Node that can be used in the editor that has been make with gdnative.

First, learn how to create editor plugin aka tool: https://docs.godotengine.org/en/stable/tutorials/plugins/editor/making_plugins.html with GDScript.

Then, in C++ use register_tool_class<YourClass>() instead as you would normally use register_class<YourClass>() for your custom type.
