Do you have any plans to extend it? With some functions of the sublime dev kit? I would have a small wishlist Smile

No plans at the moment, I just don't have the kind of time it would take Sad  I only needed a simple way to automatically reload Kodi's skin while developing. Which functions were you hoping for?
- Search for language string skin/addon
- Add string to language resource file of skin/addon
- execute command to Kodi (will be executed by script.toolbox Kodi addon) like "Runscript(bla)" or "activatewindow(bla)"
- get info label from command via JSONRPC (result will be returned by script.toolbox Kodi addon)
- directly jump to a include/variable by selecting and pressing a key combination

These are the most used functions on my end
