Kodi Add-ons are extensions that can be run from inside the Kodi GUI. They are usually written by third party developers and published to our official repository. Add-ons can also be published in other repositories or as stand alone zip files anywhere on the internet. Examples of Add-ons include video website streams, scrapers, skins and scripts.
Kodi Add-ons are typically written in python.
Add-ons should work with the latest Krypton Release. Each time a new version of Kodi is released we add new features which may lead to a break compatibility. It is up to the author to update their add-on to remain compatible.
