This is a new skin for Kodi 17 named OMNI for its omnipresent menus. Users of Mimic will notice some similarities, as it was the base for this skin. OMNI is much more streamlined, however, and doesn't have as many customization options. Here's what you need to know:
  • The main menu and submenus are accessible from every window. Press left from the main menu and everything will slide to the right, revealing the submenu.
  • The main menu and info dialog menus use icons only. Although it may not be absolutely clear at first what some options do, you will quickly figure out what they are.
  • Press right from the window content or scrollbar to access the media menu. Or press "m" on your keyboard or remote.
  • Only keyboard and remote input are supported. Mouse input is entirely untested.
Enjoy, hope you like it!

Download/Install

OMNI is now available in the Kodi repository. The source is available here: https://github.com/braz96/skin.omni/tree/krypton

If you would like to express your appreciation for this skin, please consider a donation to the XBMC Foundation. http://kodi.tv/contribute/donate/

Nice start, the fun part (at least for me is always the home screen and views)...the other billion windows though take most of the time! Good luck and always nice to see new skins pop up Smile

Icons seem a little "bold" to me, but looking great for a start.

Nice to see these new menu ideas filtering down through the skins Smile

Thanks for the comments, feel free to give it a test drive if you'd like. Still have some work to do on info dialogs and global search/extended info, but it's coming along. Will also require a massive amount of code cleanup once the basics are done.

For Kodi 17 Krypton only.

Thanks! Made some more progress today on Global Search and the video/music info dialogs. Not much left before I start cleaning up the code.

Hi. Great skin. Can you please make favourites as a widget?

It's already there as a default widget. Is there not an easy way to select it from the list of available widgets? If not, I'll take a look at adding it.

Update: Added a favorites widget, so you don't need to have skin helper service widgets installed.

I''m sorry. I found it. It''s indeed a default widget. My mistake. Thanks for your answer.

I take it back, I just added 2 new views for Movies and TV Shows. They're really just copies of the Wall view for displaying Landscape and Logo art.

Thanks for including banner and logo, it gives the skin such a better look in these threads. Nice work!

Thanks! I also made the menu icons a little smaller after considering your previous comment.

Cool, I think you are the first one on the official Repo to provide those resources and be accepted. I love to see Kodi moving forwards.

Also on the website, it now shows screenshots!

Looks great, hadn't looked at the addon website in a while. Mimic also has a banner and logo in the resources folder, they're just not being used for anything (yet).
