Hops - Output Showing As Input? - Bug? User Error?


I just started using hops, got it up and running in R8 after installing required runtimes from reference in the terminal.

I made this very simple test definition and the geometry output is showing as a geometry input.

Main script calling hops test function:

Hops test function:

Perhaps I’m fundamentally overlooking something here, but I thought that the Util components for Hops/Grasshopper Player were bi-directional meaning, depending on which side of the node is connected, determines if it is an input or output. (Unlike clusters, with a dedicated input and output node)

Could someone shed some light on what I am doing wrong with this simple test def?

Thank you all for your help!

Hops Version:

Rhino Version:

It looks like Context Bake is the output for everything Geometry wise? Is that the case
