    Default Kodi skin support

    Hi, folks,

    Is there a way to set up your own config files or something to support Kodi skins?

    Right now, IIRC, Aeon Nox and Confluence are the only skins that have configurations, so I can't set up defaults that match a particular skin.

    I'd like to have one for Black Glass Nova, but how?

    Thanks!

    In the Mezzmo Kodi Plugin there is a function that translates the selected view mode into the view mode code for the skin https://github.com/Conceiva/MezzmoKo...mezzmo.py#L202, you could modify this to add the skin name that you want to use and the view modes that it supports. You would need to look at the code for the skin you want to use to see what view modes are supported and their codes.

    Hmmm... So I took a stab at this, but I'm not getting any joy thus far. I added the following to mezzmo.py:

    elif current_skin_name == 'skin.blackglassnova':
    blackglassnova_views = { 'List' : 50 ,
    'Panel' : 51 ,
    'BigList' : 52 ,
    'Grid' : 53 ,
    'LowList' : 54 ,
    'BigPanel' : 55 ,
    'BannerList' : 56 ,
    'ShowcaseEpisode' : 57 ,
    'ShowcaseSquare' : 58 ,
    'ShowcasePoster' : 59 ,
    'CardList' : 5050 }

    view_mode = addon.getSetting(contentType + '_view_mode' + '_blackglassnova')
    if view_mode != 'Default':

    selected_mode = blackglassnova_views[view_mode]
    xbmc.executebuiltin('Container.SetViewMode(' + str(selected_mode) + ')')

    In the skin xml I found the following:

    In addon.xml:
    <addon provider-name="Tgx" name="Black Glass Nova" version="7.0.1" id="skin.blackglassnova">

    In views.xml:
    -<views>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,tvchannels,tvr ecordings,programs,pictures" languageid="535" value="50" id="list"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,programs,pictu res" languageid="31095" value="5050" id="cardlist"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,programs,pictu res" languageid="31090" value="51" id="panel"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,tvchannels,tvr ecordings,programs,pictures" languageid="31091" value="52" id="biglist"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,programs,pictu res" languageid="536" value="53" id="grid"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,tvchannels,tvr ecordings,programs,pictures" languageid="31092" value="54" id="lowlist"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes,artists,albums,songs,programs,pictu res" languageid="31093" value="55" id="bigpanel"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets,episodes" languageid="31095" value="56" id="bannerlist"/>

    <view type="movies,setmovies,tvshows,musicvideos,seasons ,sets" languageid="20445" value="59" id="showcaseposter"/>

    <view type="artists,albums,songs" languageid="20445" value="58" id="showcasesquare"/>

    <view type="episodes" languageid="20445" value="57" id="showcaseepisode"/>

    </views>

    But when I go into the Mezzmo add-on settings, I am able to only select from the aeon(s), estuary, and confluence skins.

    What am I missing?

    Ah... It looks like settings.xml may need some mods to select the views available in order to set it up in the settings (duh).

    Any pointers for adding this support?

    Thanks!

    You will need to edit settings.xml in the Mezzmo plugin to add blackglassnova to the skin names:
    <setting id="skinname" type="enum" label="30061" values="Estuary|Confluence|Aeon Nox 5" default="Estuary"/>

    Then you will need to add the supported modes for each value:
    <setting id="top_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30349" values="Default blackglassnova|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1|S howCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|Wa ll|LowList|BigList" default="List" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-15,0)" enable="eq(-15,0)"/>
    <setting id="folders_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30342" values="Default|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1| ShowCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|W all|LowList|BigList" default="List" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-16,0)" enable="eq(-16,0)"/>
    <setting id="files_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30343" values="Default|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1| ShowCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|W all|LowList|BigList" default="List" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-17,0)" enable="eq(-17,0)"/>
    <setting id="servers_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30344" values="Default|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1| ShowCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|W all|LowList|BigList" default="List" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-18,0)" enable="eq(-18,0)"/>
    <setting id="movies_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30330" values="Default|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1| ShowCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|W all|LowList|BigList" default="Shift" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-19,0)" enable="eq(-19,0)"/>
    <setting id="episodes_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30341" values="Default|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1| ShowCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|W all|LowList|Episode|BigList" default="Episode" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-20,0)" enable="eq(-20,0)"/>
    <setting id="songs_view_mode_blackglassnova " type="labelenum" label="30365" values="Default|List|InfoWall|Landscape|ShowCase1| ShowCase2|TriPanel|Posters|Shift|BannerWall|Logo|W all|LowList|BigList" default="List" subsetting="true" visible="eq(-21,0)" enable="eq(-21,0)"/>
