Introducing Feeds for Git Browser: Easily Share Lists of Kodi Addons with Friends

We’ve just added new feature to our Git Browser tool called Feeds. Feeds allow anyone to create and share “lists” which offer their selection of Kodi addon developers. This is the easiest way for bloggers, builders, YouTubers and Kodi enthusiasts to share their favourite addons with their respective audiences. And if you’re known as the “go-to Kodi guy/gal” in your circle, then this new Feeds feature should make life much easier too. Since this feature just released today, we’re probably the only people who have a Feed list up, but we hope to see many more popping up in the coming days.

It is our hope that this feature will make it easier for those who have been having trouble figuring out which GitHub usernames to lookup. We think that it will also present a fantastic alternative to “Kodi builds,” giving the users the ability to pick and choose which specific Kodi addons they want, while ensuring that everything is downloaded directly from authentic repositories. We can’t do everything alone, so please reach out to your favourite Kodi bloggers, YouTubers and “builders” asking them to create their own Git Browser Feeds today!

We’re expecting to see many Git Browser Feeds created over the coming weeks. If everyone does their part to create their own Feeds and promote this functionality, it will continue to our goal of decentralizing the Kodi addon community, while giving more power to individual addon developers. If you enjoyed this and other guides we offer, please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Should you have any questions or comments, please feel welcome at our discussion forums at any time. We have at least one very powerful new Kodi addon coming soon, so stay tuned and get excited.

Have a Question? Visit our Discussion Forums Today! There's always someone who's eager to be of assistance. Praise is always appreciated as well.

Please remember that our community is supported entirely by volunteers, developers are not paid and updates made to their addons are made during their free time.
