Skinning for beginners - Foundation skin, skinning tools, and tips
#1
THIS SKIN IS NO LONGER COMPATIBLE WITH CURRENT KODI VERSIONS!



Foundation skin: Updated for Eden

Foundation is a very simple but fully functional skin designed to be used as either a base for creating new skins or as a learning tool for anyone interested in what makes a skin work.

It comes with both 720p & 1080i coded XML's and I've also included a screen shot folder of every window/dialog XBMC uses to make things even easier.

To get the most out of it you'll need to either make a new keymap.xml or add this to your existing one -

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<keymap>
    <global>
        <keyboard>
            <F5>XBMC.ReloadSkin()</F5>
            <F6>Skin.ToggleSetting(DebugGrid)</F6>
            <F7>Skin.ToggleSetting(DebugInfo)</F7>
            <F8>Notification(Testing 123,Hello world)</F8>
        </keyboard>
    </global>
</keymap> 

F5 - Reload skin
F6 - Show/Hide the Debug Grid
F7 - Show/Hide the Debug Info
F8 - Activated the KaiDialogToast.xml
