Trying to test a new scraper, but it won't show up as an information source
#1
Hey guys, I'm trying to write a new movie scraper. It's very early stages right now, but for some reason it doesn't show up under "Choose Information Provider" (only TMDb and local Information is listed). I'm doing this on a portable Kodi install so maybe that has something to do with it.

I've added it to a folder under portable_data\addons\ and I've created an addon.xml and scraper.xml as well. Kodi.log shows the plugin being loaded, and it is listed under dependencies as with a status of "Orphaned".

However, it does NOT show up under My add-ons list under either "Information Providers > Movies" or under "All"

What am I doing wrong?

Post your addon.xml file and maybe someone will spot the error.

perhaps you're using an incorrect extension point in your addon.xml file?

for movie scrapers, it should be xbmc.metadata.scraper.movies

since it's currently listed under dependencies i suspect you're incorrectly using xbmc.metadata.scraper.library instead

Naturally after 2+ hours of banging my head against a wall before posting here, I figure it out 5 minutes afterwards. My addon.xml had:

  <extension point="xbmc.metadata.scraper.library"

Instead of

  <extension point="xbmc.metadata.scraper.movies"
