Blender uses Python API to provide users with scripting support and to allow creation of user defined add-ons.
We use this API to provide add-on's functionality. We also use several Python modules that are necessary. Those are installed using Python Wheels system. The installation is done automatically with add-on setup.
Add-on needs SSH support from the operating system. This is done depending on the system as:
- Ubuntu sudo apt install openssh-server openssh-client
- MacOS it is installed by default
- Windows 10
-- To install OpenSSH, start Settings then go to \textbf{Apps $\rightarrow$ Apps and Features $\rightarrow$ Manage Optional Features}.
-- Scan this list to see if OpenSSH client is already installed. If not, then at the top of the page select \textbf{Add a feature}, then:
\begin{itemize}
\item To install the OpenSSH client, locate \textbf{OpenSSH Client}, then click \textbf{Install}.
\item To install the OpenSSH server, locate \textbf{OpenSSH Server}, then click \textbf{Install}.
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
To setup the add-on in Blender, first download *bheappe* folder from this repository and save it as a .zip file. Use this link to [download](https://code.it4i.cz/raas/bheappe/-/archive/master/bheappe-master.zip?path=bheappe) it.
