Anyone using Rapier for Kodi 19?

I'm currently cleaning up views and coding things from scratch to speed up things.

In this process I really need testers.


Bug reports, speed experiences etc etc.
Especially speed experiences when entering libraries / changing views compared to the previous version.



I will push out a new version right now which will feature rework on these views:
- List Info
- List Info 2
- List Info 3

This version will significantly speed up most views, as they have all been recoded and cleaned up.
This also means that some views have changed ID's, and they need to be selected in the libraries again.
Skin settings > Views need to be set again for certain views as well.


The highlights are:
  • Major code cleanup and rewrite of views.
    Refactor of Skin Settings > Views.
    See above for details.
  • Guide controls dialog has been added to the PVR guide window. Screenshot below.

    You can add it to your keymaps using "ActivateWindow(PVRGuideControls)". Or activate the dialog with "n" or long pressing enter/return.
  • Extended List view has been added for music artists. Screenshots below.
  • Thumbs Info view for clear art is now available for movies and sets.
  • Skin settings -> Supported add-ons will now also show if an add-on is disabled.

  • Support for CoreELEC has been added.
  • "(New!)" label has been added in PVR information window for new premieres.
  • Support for the add-on CDArt Manager has been removed (cdart.png images can still be used).

@Gade - I am going to take it for a test drive for the next coupe days. Big Grin

Thanks for maintaining this classic skin.

Hi shedrock.

Great to hear from you!

Can't wait to hear how you experience it now that a lot of the views are rewritten and cleaned up.

I found a minor bug in List view for tv shows, where both overlays are displaying at the same time. 
I'll include the fix in the next development update.

Other than that the skin should be a lot faster and more responsive.

Cheers
Gade

UPDATE: Rapier 12.1.16 is available through the official Kodi repository!

This update is installed automatically.
If this is not the case, you can download it here.


The highlights are:
  • Support has been added for actor info in Extended List View. Screenshots below.
    You need to manually install the add-on plugin.video.themoviedb.helper
    Perhaps you need to enter a TMDB API key in the add-on settings.
  • Support for Embuary Info Script (script.embuary.info) has been added. Screenshots below.
  • Info has been added on playing media to fullscreen seekbar dialog. Screenshots below.
    This will display after 5 seconds.
  • Added oninfo action ("I" or "Info" on a remote) in all programs windows to open programs information window.
  • Support for Artist Slideshow add-on 2.x and 3.x
  • Changed Skin Settings > Add more categories to only one button. Screenshots below.
    This will make it more user friendly and faster to use.
  • Skin setting to switch to visualization when playing music has been removed.
    Instead, go to "Settings > Media > Music > Switch to visualization on playback".
  • Major bugfixing (huge thanks to @olympus).

TESTERS NEEDED!

I removed script.randomandlastitems and script.skin.helper.backgrounds completely from the skin.
This is to minimize the need for addons (especially non Python 3 addons) and to speed up the skin.

All features from these addons are now coded directly into the skin.

Please test that all custom playlist widgets, all custom backgrounds for main and custom categories are working as expected.

Rapier 12.2.0 in my development repo has the new features.

hi gade,
i tryed to install the skin on a fresh kodi install from yesterdays nightly.
it don't work because the addon:
Code:
2020-04-11 17:08:38.685 T:7924   ERROR: CAddonInstallJob[skin.rapier]: Die Abhängigkeit auf script.skin.helper.service in Version 1.1.3 konnte nicht aufgelöst werden.
is incompatible. its still in your prerequisuites in the addon.xml Smile

or you use another kodi 19 nightly?
