Getting started with WDTVExt ?   

Postby thespecialist » Sat May 22, 2010 9:34 pm

Is there any link that shows you how to get started with WDTVext ? I took a quick look but can't find anything. I know there's this wiki page but that doesnt explain much: http://wiki.wdlxtv.com/DevelopWDTVExtPlugin#Filename

That's pretty much it for now, regarding existing information.
I think we all started by exploring the example code provided with wdtvext (weather, extsheet , etc plugins).

If you have a concrete question i'd be happy to answer it if i can ;)
I can also provide some further example code (willing to comment it as well ;P)

I will try to start a 'WDTVext First Steps' post here later today...

Cool 8-)

I was busy reverse engineering: I wanted to make that 'local drives' icon permanent (not depending on an USB drive attachement), so I could access mounted shares even without an USB drive but then I figured, maybe this i possible with WDTVExt ? I saw you can add and remove icons from the menu ?

Anyway, it indeed would be very helpful if there would be some quick documentation about what it is, what it can do, what it can NOT do and some other basic info that gets you started programming plugins for it. And yeah, of course it's possible to start by analzying code etc but the more info we share with each other, the faster people can create something and the nicer this community (and the resulting FW) will be :)

Cheers,

TS

BTW, maybe make it a sticky post, with also links to other (informative) first reads

BTW, about what we can NOT do: "create menu items that link to a folder or file", I guess that means that what I wanted to do (make that local folder directory visible without an USB drive in) not possible ?

I tried this without any success, i think that this is another dmaosd problem... it shows the Folders item only if there is actually a usb device connected..., creating USB1 or 2 doesn't change a thing, so dmaosd must have a look at the mounted usb devices...
I don't think wdtvext can handle this yet in any way... :(

I have off today and tommorrow and am going to finally delve into my theories on how to handle this problem.
PM's are for private matters only, please post public matters on the forum to help others who might have the same issue.

I will work on the wiki page and eventually release a small js library to add content properly to page.extraContent (so multiple plugins adding content to the same page can coexsist peacefully ;) )
