Hi @bsoriano
I'm now running Kodi 20 Nexus (LibreElec) on my machines. So far Amber runs fine; if I encounter bugs in Amber under Kodi 20 Nexus, do you want us to post here in the main thread, or in the "Amber for Leia/Matrix" thread...?
...If at all since Nexus is still fairly new.

I know plugins and other things will get depreciated at times during development, and we need to come up with work-arounds or go without at times.
Just want to know your thoughts on it.

Thanks.
@TheRealDeadMan, I have created a Nexus branch of the skin on GitHub, and I also created a Nexus repo. At the moment neither are updated with the latest changes.

You can post any issues in the same Amber thread, I will change the name of the thread to reflect that Amber runs on Nexus also.

Regards,

Bart
@TheRealDeadMan , I have just updated the Nexus branch with all of the skinning engine changes for Nexus, and also with all of the updates I have done to the Matrix version of the skin.  Could you please test and let me know how it goes? Thanks.

Sure thing. Give me a day or so to get back to you, right in the middle of projects and haven't had much time lately - playing catch-up now that we are free and getting back to normalcy. Smile

Hi @bsoriano, just finished updating to current LibreElec Kodi Nexus nightly and Amber 3.6.3; all is working fine. (The Matrix version of Amber also works fine on Nexus; I installed that a few weeks back to see all the cool updates you had done.)

The updated script.skinshortcuts v2.0.1 is also working fine with Amber Nexus - my first time running it since its release on Jan 23. I'm not sure if anyone else has tried it with Amber Matrix yet, but I assume so by now.

Any other minor issues are due to the alpha Nexus build, but updates and fixes are consistent.

Thanks for your continued updates Smile
I just bought a new Intel NUC to setup a new instance of Kodi, specifically to try Nexus. I love the Amber skin as it seems to be the one that my partner finds most intuitive....once I make some tweaks to the settings.

I installed Amber from the official Kodi repository (v3.4.11). I have never manually installed a skin or addon but I'll see if I can work it out and get the 3.6.3 up and running. With 3.4.11 I have noticed a few bugs. But I'll wait until I have the new version running before asking questions. I presume I just download the zip file and install from zip.

Thanks for such a quick response great skin.

Marty.
PS...sorry to read about loosing your job. Do you have a donations option? I usually support developers with a small donation for stuff I use frequently.

Yes, you can do that. Or install the Nexus repo zip so it updates automatically.
But... he does not keep it as up-to-date and the Matrix version. The Matrix version still works fine under Nexus if you want to use all the newest bells and whistles. Smile
