Full Version: JSON-RPC: TODO list
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Okay since I have very little time to work on XBMC right now and the time I have I'm spending on the settings refactor I thought I write down the TODO list I kept for possible JSON-RPC features/additions. The idea is to list all ideas and to decide whether something makes sense or not. If something is wanted and would be accepted into XBMC it will be in green. If it hasn't been decided yet it will be in black and if it has been "declined" it will be in red. That way anyone who would like to work on a specific feature can take a look at possible candidates.
To get something into the list just create a new thread in the JSON-RPC subforum and state your idea as detailed as possible i.e. how should the method be named, what parameters and options would it take, what would it return and what would it actually do. I'll try to add all of them to this list with a link to the actual discussion. If there's something without a link it's from my old internal TODO list so if you are interested in the idea, feel free to create a thread for discussion.
