Like others, I have been using the XBMC Remote Dashboard Widget to navigate Kodi. However, since the introduction of the Notification Center and its own widgets, using the dashboard got redundant so I created a simple remote that fits in OS X Notification Center.
This remote allows you to send various commands to Kodi as well as monitor the player’s progress, volume, speed and fill in text inputs. In order for the app to function, you will have to transfer the app to your Applications folder and open it to access the widget in the Notification Center. You can set it up with the right IP for your Kodi's system by clicking on the “i” in the top right corner.
List of commands:
- left - left
- right - right
- down - down
- up - up
- return - select
- back - back
- h - home
- m - context menu
- i - info
- space - pause
- f / shift+left - forward player progress
- b / shift+right - backward player progress
- shift+down - volume down
- shift+up - volume up
- p - play previous item in playlist
- n - play next item in playlist
- shift+r - restart
- cmd+v - add youtube or vimeo video to the playlist from a link in the clipboard

For now the app is not signed and may trigger security issues. You can find the source files here.
I hope you enjoy the app! Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
