[RELEASE] XBMC Command-Line Client (XBMC-CLC)
#1
Thumbs Up 
I've started work on another developer's tool -- a command-line client for the XBMC Python interpreter. You can get it in SVN. (I'll also probably have a link for it on my website with additional documentation sometime tomorrow.)

I'm basically just trying to recreate the functionality of Python at the Windows command prompt. There are some big problems with it, such as keyboard entry triggering XBMC effects and the text very quickly scrolling outside the viewable area of my TextBox. The basic functionality is there, though.

I'm releasing it now, not because it's ready, but because I could really use some extra testers and suggestions about what needs to be fixed, what can be fixed, and how to work around the system's limitations.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Oh! To exit the script, hit Ctrl-Z or Ctrl-D (just like you would normally) or, because of the way XBMC processes keystrokes) any Ctrl-key combination. Escape just clears the text currently entered on the command-line.

This could be an interesting way to interface other languages. Would this be able to expose more functionality than the current web interface?

Not really (at least, not right off-hand). I'm using the Python interpreter that's already in XBMC to capture and process Python calls. If I can iron out the problems it should be more powerful than the web interface for some of the Python stuff, but not really anything beyond that.
