Keep all add-on settings synced across all of your Kodi installations

1 Introduction

You can install this addon from GitHub Releases.

The AddonSync service allows you to set one of your Kodi installations as the "Master" and have all your other installations automatically copy any changes you make to the add-on settings there. The master installation uploads them to a network share, and each time the slave instances are run they scan them for any changes and download them if found.

2 Setup

AddonSync works on a "Master" and "Slave" approach. There can be only a single Master installation, but any number of slave installations. First, set up the Master installation, this will export all of your add-on settings to a shared location.

Once you have your Master installation configured to share its settings to a shared location, you can configure any number of other installations to act as slaves and update their own add-on settings from that master copy.

3 Exclusions

There are some addons that will not be synced between installations, this is normally because they need to have their own configurations. These include:

  • Skin settings
  • Metadata add-ons
  • Built-in screensavers
  • Add-ons which have updated only on a Slave or the Master instance, such that the versions of the add-on no longer match
