View Full Version : Plugin Development

November 7th, 2008, 01:54 PM
If someone is interested in developing a new plugin for Boxee is there a place that gives an overview or guide on what is required?

I would like to develop a plug in that works with pyTVShows to automate the download of tvshow torrents (I know pyTVShows will work on mac and atv, but not sure about others).

At a minimum I would like to be able to do the following:
1. View the contents of the config file (show name, session, episode) so that you can tell what show it is currently looking for.
2. allow the user to run pyTVShows to go and get any new content.

Other features that I would like to add would be things like:
1. allow the updating of the config file based on shows on tvrss
2. updating the config file so that you can change the session/episode.
3. setup pyTVShows to auto run
4. provide some stats on the last time a show was downloaded.
