How To Make A Plugin??

Post by MasonTM3 » Fri Sep 28, 2018 6:01 pm

I know how to program in python, and more programming languages, and I have a softmodded xbox with xbmc4xbox. I want to make some add ons, but where do I start? What software do I need? I would prefer if I can use visual studio. Thx

best bet would be to download a plugin and have a look, but there may be some info on the wiki or a look on the KODI forum may help.

There are plugins maintained by our dev buzz and there are a few XBOX specific ones around.
The XBOX and mainstream KODI differ in this area exactly what I 'm not sure but I'm not sure someone may reply and inform you.

I believe the XBOX has an optimised/ cutback python version I believe because of limitation of the xbox and some pc plugings wont work out of the box without being modified.
