Keep all Addon settings in sync across all of your installations

1 Introduction

You can install this addon from: Repository:robwebset

The AddonSync service allows you to set one of your Kodi installations as the "Master" and have all the other installations be Slaves. Then you can have the master installation upload to a network share, and the slave installation download them.

2 Setup

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

Once you have your Master installation backing up it's settings to a shared location you can configure any number of other installations to act as slaves and update their own settings from the master copy.
