Custom views in Amber skin in 1.2.0

Post by RealUser » 19 Jan 2016, 14:18

Is it possible to edit the skin.xml via filebrowser to setup Ambers Custom-Items(Favourits, Playlists) in CustomPath node?

If yes, what is the the correct path-syntax for it?

skin.xml is inside the app, read-only. it cannot be 'edited'

sorry, i mean settings.xml in skin.amber.

special://profile/addon_data/skin.amber/settings.xml

in this, there are customPath nodes:

Code: Select all

    
    <setting id="CustomHome.1.Background" type="string"></setting>
    <setting id="CustomHome.1.Path" type="string"></setting>
    <setting id="CustomHome.1.Label" type="string">Neu</setting>

We use slightly modified version of Amber, but I don't think that we removed these options if they were in skin settings.

Do you know where the settings are in original skin?

In Kodi they are in guisettings.xml

Code: Select all

<skinsettings>
        <setting type="string" name="skin.amber.CustomHome.1.Label">CUSTOMTITLE</setting>
        <setting type="string" name="skin.amber.CustomHome.1.Background"></setting>
        <setting type="string" name="skin.amber.CustomHome.1.Path">PlayMedia("special://profile/playlists/video/neu-komplett.xsp",return)</setting>
...
</skinsettings>
In the settings there are menu-editing options in "home-menu" in the original amber-skin.

Unfortunately i can't find the special://profile/addon_data/skin.amber/settings.xml anymore in the current version of MRMC. :(

that was removed as we do not support any Addons and rest relies on python(I think)

This has nothing to do with addons.

In these settings you can place favourites. For me it's important to get my playlists (favourites) to the mainmenu.
That's possible with original amber. I need this for my kids. they should se a menuentry for animation-movies.

You can disable or remove the addon-entry. But please let us customize the mainmenu with our favourites.

thx

it has everything to do with addons, you might not realize but skins can leverage python addons to do things and fetch information. The addon.xml in the skin shows these very things.

https://github.com/jester-xbmc/skin.amb ... /addon.xml

addon="script.favourites"
addon="service.skin.widgets"

those are python based.

You're absolutely right, i don't realize this. I thought, Amet means the "Add-Ons"-entry in the screenshot.

If it's impossible to customize (favs/playlists) the mainmenu in amber, perhaps there's another skin without the need auf python, to set up something like this.

thx
