Development resources

Post by mrpmorris »

I've just been introduced to xbmc on the xbox by a friend, I am loving it!

I'm curious to read material regarding developing python script plugins. I thought there might be a sticky in here :)

Could I have some recommendations please?

Thanks!

We are currently recovering from a big lost.. http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2
At the moment there is no XBMC4Xbox wiki..

Anyways.. what you really need is python documentation.. wich in any case wont be supplyied by us. :)
Keep in mind that XBMC4Xbox and XBMC are not the same (not all infos are good).. but you can probably learn a couple thing there:

I started to learn some Python myself but couldn't get on with it because I'm too dumb! However I found the following links some great resources for xbmc plugin creation...

Introduction To Computer Science
How To Write Plugins For XBMC

t0mm0's resources:
Simple XBMC Addon Tutorial
Downloads Needed For Tutorial
t0mm0's URL Resolver

There was another really useful one which I may have on my laptop somewhere, I'll take a look for you and if I find it I'll post it up somewhere.

I have a little experience with python, not to different from C# which is my main job. The API's are the info I needed, so thanks for the links :)
