Hi everyone,

I have been working on a web interface for a while now, and finally feel confident enough to post it on the forums.
So ... Here it is. Hope you like it!

Thanks for you work! Looks really stunning! Nice ;-)
Will give it a try, when I'm at home.

Do you plan to also integrate a music panel into your web interface?
Maybe you can contact the developer of chorus: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=183451
That's another stunning looking web interface. But only for music.... Undecided

Both projects together would be realy nice ;-)

I wasn't planning on adding music, for the simple reason that I don't use music at all.
Might add it in a future version though. I'll keep it in mind Smile

Not really, to be honest Confused
What you could do is set debugging to true in main.js (in /App folder)
Then perhaps some more info about the issue will be available in your browser console.

simply beautiful and well done..

i have 3 requests:
1 for the search function, can you add years to the movies and add the show title to the episode search results
2 can there be an option to change the white background to a dark grey, the white is just a bit bright when in a dark room
3 center the recent items on the home screen

thanks, and again, nice work.

1. Show title and movie year have been added to search results.
2. I'm looking into a way to easily save settings for the interface. When I find a decent way of doing this, layout options might be one of the changeable things in the skin. However, I'm not a fan of a dark background myself, so I won't change this in the default look.
3. Centering the items looks weird to me, to be honest, so I won't change this directly. If you really want the results centered, you could add text-align: center; to the .section class in the file css/visualix.min.js (around character nr. 3850)

Please drop the gui dependency from addon.xml
That should only apply to skins/scripts.

Do remember that there will be some differences between Frodo and gotham jsonrpc. You can detect which is being used by requesting the JSON-RPC version and act accordingly

I honestly love this thing. I'll hold off on too major feature requests ATM though, as I assume you're still implementing your own features. Out of curiosity though, do you ultimately plan on implementing things like a Now Playing control interface, or are you sticking primarily with search functionality?

Oke, thank you Martijn.

Thanks for the enthousiasm Smile

My main focus was indeed browsing the library.
However, I do feel that a control interface is something that should be included in a future version. It would make it much more useful I think.
