Request : Customize Home Screen

Post by vitalogic » 10 Jul 2018, 10:29

Hi @pecinko

First off, amazing work on the skin! My default one from now on. Previously I was with Embuary skin on Kodi, but yours is much more faster.

There is some things that I think can be copied from Embuary which will make this skin even better, which is to be able to customize home screen. I know it's probably in the works already (I hope!) but here's my take on it.

widget-based list
We should be able to create a widget based on source -> library -> options (in progress, and recently added). For example I can select server1, from Kids Movies library, only show in progress.

All server view
Here, we can have one home with multiple widgets from different server.

Hide/show library
Option to show or hide a certain library (ehem) so can't be accessed easily from home screen.

With these 2, I think we can have home screen that please everyone.

Another thing I wanted is a universal search but I think that's not from the skin?

Anyways, keep up the awesome work.

Hey,

I asume you are using Plex and/or Emby since you are talking about different servers? What is your use case?

Hey there, yes you're right I'm using emby AND plex. I have 2 server running both with different kinds of library, also a friend is sharing his plex library. I know it's probably not the most likely use case, but I still think user with one server with multiple library can still take advantage of this level of customization.

1,2 - We will be improving current shelves on home page in 3.8, but current plan is that shelves will be populated for currently selected server. Thing is you can have 10 servers and many of them could be slower remote servers.

3 - We have a tool for that - mrmc profiles and Plex users, right?
4 - This one is planned for future version

Ah nice, yes after thinking about it I think that's the best moving forward. Is the plan for 3.8 includes view for newly added or in progress per-library?

Its great to hear that the search is being worked on.

Thanks again.

You already have this in 3.7 - settings/video(music)/library/ - > uncheck "flatten hierarchy"

We plan to improve it further in 3.8

Ah yes you're right! I always wondered what those settings are for, lol.

But, can we add those view to the home? Right now for plex, it's usually :
- continue watching
- on deck
- recently added tv
- recently added movies

If we can have it like :
- continue watcing
- deck
- recently added anime
- recently added kids shows
- recently added tv shows
- recently added movies

And if we can have some level of customization on which to show and hide, that'd be better. Even like showing a specific genre, or showing in progress for specific library (eg. in progress anime).
