BIS (Blender Interplanety Storage) add-on is ported to Blender 2.8
The add-on branch for Blender 2.7 is fixed on the number 1.5. The master release for Blender 2.8 has the version number 1.6 and higher in future development.
For both add-on versions the same library is used, so all BIS materials are available for all add-on versions, however, please note, materials made for Blender 2.8 may not look correct in Blender 2.7 and backward.
Now the download consists of two archives to install the add-on:
bis_2_7.zip – for Blender 2.7
BIS.zip – for Blender 2.8
To make an integer input/output in the node group:
BIS add-on 1.5.2. version or later, Select the desired node group in the Node Editor,
In T-panel in the “BIS” tab, “Tools” section: click “+ Input” to create an input or “+ Output” to create an output in the selected node group.
