I have decided to walk away from my GetGlue XBMC add-on. I have had very little extra time to focus on this project and as a result have found the python learning curve insurmountable. Having large gaps between opportunities to work on the project lead to starting from square one with each effort. I have however found another add-on that looks to fill the void my efforts were trying to fill. Please take a look at traktheglue by mcassiano.
I tried running the OAuth Keys through the site recommended by GetGlue and it seems to be working. Now I just have to figure out how to make it work automatically via Python Scripts inside the Add-On rather than hand entered on a form. The site I used to test the OAuth Key was; http://term.ie/oauth/example/client.php
What’s been done:
So far I have taken a few add-ons that do a similar function that I am hoping my add-on can do and I have taken a long look at their code both the .xml addon file as well as their python scripts. I don’t know python and am unable to find a good collection of xbmc specific commands that seem to be in play. Read more »
So I started a new project! I have been playing around with XBMC on my home computer for a year or so now and have really enjoyed the open source software that I can play around with a little. I have extremely limited coding knowledge/experience so I have only been able to do minor tweeks with a high level of research and documentation to guide me. I have decided to take a deeper jump into the software world with my new project to develope a GetGlue add-on for XBMC. The reasons for the project are threefold;
- Increase my knowledge of software structures and languages, specifically how to work in Python, make xml documents and how to work with API calls.
- To give something back to the open source community of XBMC. I love the software and I love the idea and practice of open source projects and wish to contribute rather than leach. Even if I can only start the process and work in collaboration with other more skilled developers I have given SOMETHING back.
- To have some fun. I have been toying with learning some programming languages before but didn’t really have any projects that would hold my interest. I think this project will be fun in educating myself about things I care about.
