This tutorial will explain how to write your first Kodi/XBMC Screensaver Add-on
Screensavers should be pretty easy in their most basic form. All you will need is a text editor or IDE and some artwork resources.
Since we don't have a full "HOW TO" guide for this yet (please feel free to sign up to the wiki and edit this page) we will just show some source code of other screensavers for now:
Python example https://github.com/XBMC-Addons/screensaver.picture.slideshow
C++ example https://github.com/notspiff/screensaver.stars
You can either download as a zip and install both of these inside the kodi GUI from the install from zip feature. Or extract the zip into your userdata/add-ons folder.
