XBMC Add-On Frontend Repository
#1
About
One thing I noticed with xbmc is the plugin management and organization is lacking. At the moment I think it is a manual process to add/approve plugins and there is no real central web repository. Plugins are hard to find on the web and discussion of them seems limited to random forum threads dotted all over the place. The documentation and source code is also not centralized. Lastly its hard to know if a plugin is working or broken.

Idea
Create a web based repository of all plugins containing basic information(details, icons, screenshots) as well as links to the community discussion, wiki manuals, source code links and current status.

Screens
Image

details screen | category list

Future Ideas
- Move away from Slow XML data
- Community voting on plugin status [working/broken/abandoned]
- Make it more like Apple/Android web stores (allow donations/commercial plugins ect)
- Add user reviews and scores

Source code
http://code.google.com/p/xbmcrepo/downloads/list

Release History
- 0.2 fix bug with games category
- 0.1 initial release. Basic categories, info, and web links.

Test Link

Disclosure: I am part of the MeediOS project (I helped write their OpenMAID plugin repository). I also use xbmc though so happy to help out here as well.
