Edit your Kodi Skin using Notepad++
Hello and welcome to part three of my blogs about tools needed for skinning koid, in this part i’m looking at notepad++,
this an highly effective tool used by addon creators and skinners in the kodi world, once you get used to the process you will understand why they use it.
First you’ll need to download Notepad from here, once you have downloaded, installed and run the program you’ll be greeted with the following
As with most programs you use the open file icon to get to files you want, the location for kodi file are as follows C:\Users\Yourname\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\addons\Skin name\1080i or 720p\
For this quick look at Notepad++ I have used the Aeon Nox skin, i’ll now show you the sections that you will need to edit, the first one that is used is the home.xml
Then there is the Includes Home.xml
For the Aeon Nox skin the Rss feed is stored in the Includes recently added.xml. As you can see from the picture below this is where the widgets information is stored.
One last picture of xml files is the Font.xml. This is as the name suggests where the font info is stored.
So this is just a quick glance at notepad++, how to edit these sections will be covered in other blogs. I hope you’ve got a basic understanding of the files edited using notepad++.
