Plugin and Script API documentation and other useful links for XBMC Addon Developers

Where can it be better elaborated?

Have I missed some important points (after all I've only been scripting XBMC/Python for 2 weeks!)

I dunno if you're still working on it (It hasn't been updated for 4 months) but I'd like to see some more pictures (screenshots and diagrams).

If people are anything like me they like to skip over the bulky text (and short one-liners too) and go straight to the pictures and screenshots.

But great work, I can see you've put a lot of effort in, I will find it useful!

In a sense I'm waiting to see what XBMC will do with it. At moment it languishes in the bug tracker. But thanks for your feedback. I'll have a think about pictures if it is to go any further.

I've created a PDF version of the document for easy download. It is at

Hi Amet

As you say, it would be better on the wiki. The problem is twofold

1/ I just don't have the time to transcribe it to wiki format - Anyone out that wants to do it, please feel free ! I'm currently being pulled back into the Xoops CMS project and I have just started a new XBMC mod to provide the facility of dvd::rip inside XBMC (cus I'm fed up of having to use a separate process to do the job. (edit: just found http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=52615 so I'll try and help out there instead.)

2/ Wiki is a bit of a mess at the moment (imho.) You are right, a lot of this stuff is already there, but you really have to dig around for it. But if you recall, I had to ask a lot of questions around the devs to get some stuff (you helped with this if you recall ;-) ). Wiki docs for devs really needs a good clean out/refactor. Again, I'd do it myself but for the time involved. If someone wanted to bring together what I and others have done, prune down the wiki tree and get this stuff 'in one place', that would be a great contribution to the project. If you remember, I wrote the doc in the first place 'cus I couldn't find what I needed easily in one place.

Cheers
A

Few links on passion-XBMC that you could find useful if you start Addon development (translated in english):
- Code Snippet
- Official XBMC documentation pretty up to date thanks to Frost

Got bored and made this guide
[GUIDE] HOW TO ADD A LOGIN FUNCTION TO YOUR ADDON


its a tutorial for a http login method that fills out the username + password forms on a webpage, sends a login request and saves the cookie that is returned.

also contains a simple url opener that handles cookies.

should work for most sites.

more boredom has also inspired me to make a proper python interface for google's JSON api.

the search can be pumped in such a way as to easily provide a very good search function for any site.

it returns unicode and all that

Awesome Nod

Support threads here in development might be a good idea. Wink

Thanks for for taking the time to make modules.

I would love to help with this effort. I'm a total n00b at this stuff and am also finding it difficult to find the relevant information. A lot of the tutorials and HOW-TO docs are out of date.

I'm particularly interested in learning to use the JSON-RPC system to get info from the database. One of the tutorials I saw (on the official wiki) said directly accessing the databases through sqlite, etc., is actively discouraged.

So if I make any headway in figuring this out, I'll help contribute to your new documentation. ;-)

New replacement of addons_xml_generator.py for repository owners. This adds the ability to automatically produce a compressed repository structure.

It seems this link should now be http://mirrors.xbmc.org/docs/python-docs/.
