In order to extend the add node menu and search to support assets,
we need to be able to fill both menus with more flexibility:

  • Add nodes to arbitrary paths of submenus based on asset catalogs
  • Use the C++ asset system to iterate over potential nodes

Some other changes to the two menus would also be helpful:

  • The ability to search for nodes based on multiple strings
  • Displaying the categories in the search menu
  • Possibly avoiding the need to modifier another file when adding a new node (nodeitems_builtins.py)

The "dumb" method of defining the add menu for builtin nodes with a Python menu is still a simple method though.
It isn't clear if the search menu and add menu implementations should be linked together.

... to be continued
