Summary description:  Simple nodes in four colors written in TikZ for LaTeX

Announcement text:
 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.
