Actually, at the time of this post, the Add-on Front-end website is working, but has no addon content. I saw the same thing yesterday as well.

Confirmed here.


RE: Official Add-On Website - zag - 2014-05-09

OK confirmed.

Will look into it. It needs to be bumped to the Gotham repository anyway.


RE: Official Add-On Website - da-anda - 2014-05-12

looks like an issue with the repo.xml durnig import will whipe the DB. Will fix and switch over to Gotham repo


RE: Official Add-On Website - Kib - 2014-05-13

Should it not show both combined?


RE: Official Add-On Website - da-anda - 2014-05-13

current architecture doesn't allow to switch between XBMC versions, so we can only show the addons of one version. Added the mentioned import fixes and files a PR for the Gotham bump


RE: Official Add-On Website - Karnagious - 2014-05-14

No more download numbers?


RE: Official Add-On Website - da-anda - 2014-05-14

no, because the download tracking almost killed our mirror system + we reached Googles limits on requests per day. We're looking for an alternate way to provide download statistics, but this will need some more time.


RE: Official Add-On Website - Martijn - 2014-05-14

we are currently around 50 or 60 million downloads a day (addons, repo lists, binary files).
since Analytics has a certain API limit which we reach within seconds, connections are being dropped or timed out.

We talked to some developers who developed their own mirror system which allows way way way more downloads per day and provides statistics as JSON output. As said by da-anda this needs some time to get properly tested. Do note we are really willing to show the anonymous download stats for add-on but now on the expense of our servers.


RE: Official Add-On Website - Karnagious - 2014-05-14

Thats a good problem to have.

Thanks for the clarification.


RE: Official Add-On Website - zag - 2014-05-14

- A new Games category should now be available to view.

http://addons.xbmc.org/category/games

thx to Da-anda

For add-on authors, please use an ID starting with "script.game" for it to show up

EDIT: no don't, see below.


RE: Official Add-On Website - da-anda - 2014-05-14

NO, please no "script.game", this is just a hack to make currently available games show up in this category. I suggest to rather use <provides>game</provides> which is more straight forward in future, because looking at the upcoming games API by garbear there could also be binary games etc

Do NOT start making up things unless properly discussed within the team. These things need to be integrated into the code.
We need something future proof and well thought of. None of the things mentioned will actually work atm.

We need to see how Retroplayer has it done or any other options.


RE: Official Add-On Website - zag - 2014-05-14

Yep I had a quick look at the current 3 Game add-ons and they are indeed all different.

<provides>game</provides> sounds like a good solution for the future but we need to discuss how this effects things.


RE: Official Add-On Website - da-anda - 2014-05-14

@Martijnn - already discussed this on IRC once, and the best most future proof I could come up with was <provides>game</provides> (along audio, video, pictures) - so entrypoint doesn't matter, only the content type it provides.

edit: garbear is already using my proposal. see https://github.com/garbear/xbmc/commit/c8acf95c2281ad2f54990ae46ba97f2bdf37b0cf#diff-fe90e40b1c72ae300145dd5560eb4e7aR84
