Release - Omni 2.x for Leia
#1
Image

This skin is called OMNI for its omnipresent menus. Users of Mimic will notice some similarities, as it was the base for this skin. OMNI is much more streamlined, however, and doesn't have as many customization options. Here's what you need to know:
  • The main menu and submenus are accessible from every window. Press left from the main menu and everything will slide to the right, revealing the submenu.
  • The main menu and info dialog menus use icons only. Although it may not be absolutely clear at first what some options do, you will quickly figure out what they are.
  • Press right from the window content or scrollbar to access the media menu. Or press "m" on your keyboard or remote.
  • Only keyboard and remote input are supported. Mouse input is entirely untested.
Enjoy, hope you like it!

Download/Install

OMNI is now available in the Kodi repository. The source is available here: https://github.com/braz96/skin.omni

Added a new view for Artists. From this single view you can select an artists's album, and then view the tracks for that album and play them all from one window. The view will slide over to display tracks.

On my htpc, the album list fills pretty quick, not sure how it will do on low-powered devices. I've noticed that for artists with a couple of hundred albums (Pearl Jam for me), it takes a few seconds for the list to load.

FYI, scrollbar is only selectable for the tracks list. Plus, realized that it will only play the track you select. Haven't found a way to play an album from this view.

Inspired by discussion in this thread... http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=314969

Looks great but the in-app list view is very weird imho. You have apps that show you a "preview" picture and it looks like this but is weird because it shows the same preview image for every item:

But then you have most other apps that display the list like so, which makes no sense:

Imho the view should be left side 1-4 and then right side 5-8 etc. Or a uniform list view like you have on Mimic where it always shows a preview image on the right side (it would show the same team logo again big on the right side). But I would prefer the smaller view you see here on the NBA app, without a preview picture. Just change the sorting or add an option if possible.

Just my 2 cents. Looks cool otherwise.
