Full Version: New JSON RPC: API also in Boxee
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hi everyone

I'm developing a library for controlling XBMC using the JSON RPC service.
I had to rewrite nearly everything because the API has changed in Eden.
Now I only have one question, does Boxee (e.g. v1.5) also support the
new JSON RPC api?

Another question: Is there an API to send keyboard strokes to XBMC to
simulate the keyboard?

Thanks.
Rico

I develop the JSON-RPC API for XBMC but I have no connections to anyone at boxee so I have no clue if they intend to pull the changes made in XBMC into Boxee. You'll have to ask them. That being said AFAIK boxee uses a very old development version of XBMC's JSON-RPC API. I think it's even pre-Dharma so I wouldn't hold my breath.
Thanx for your reply.

I've checked out the documentation of boxees api.
And yes, it is not the eden API and it misses the library API.

Ok, I will write the Boxee team...
Thx
