Short description of error
It is possible to create socket for frame node and connect to it.
I don't understand why frame node instance has an inputs/outputs attributes. And I don't understand why frame nodes are nodes if they have nothing common with them.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • create custom node tree
  • create frame node
  • add input socket for new node (via API)
  • add other normal node
  • create new link between created socket of frame node and socket of the normal node (via API)

Please share your example .blend file (including the script that creates the socket and link).
This just saves some time for devs to take a look at this. Thx in advance...

import bpy

tree =['NodeTree']
frame_node = tree.nodes['Frame']
normal_node = tree.nodes['Custom Node']

frame_socket ='MyCustomSocket', 'Test')
normal_socket = normal_node.outputs[0], frame_socket)
