    In an effort to reduce spaghetti graphs, I suggest creating a node which stores a given value (like a variable in code) which can then be reused elsewhere in the graph.
    Hopefully, this would enable nicer looking / easier to understand graphs.

    I also agree this would be an extremely useful feature to have. Amplify allows this in their visual scripting tool and it makes a huge difference for readability and reuse. It also makes it a more efficient tool overall. I was going to also request dot nodes to increase organization (shader graph has these now) like those described in here. I think both are very valuable for VFX graph as a visual scripting language. I love the overall design and workflow of VFX graph! Great work dev team!
