The XBMC/Kodi Foundation is still working hard on the next big update to its popular home theater software, Kodi 18 “Leia”, but whether you’re running the alpha, or are still on Kodi 17, we’ve some great news for you.
Unofficial add-on repository TVAddons has released a new tool for Kodi called Batch Installer which allows users to create their own custom “templates” for configuring Kodi to new devices in seconds.
Users can select which Kodi add-ons to include, and also specify their choice of skin as well as other modifications.
The Batch configuration file is easily auditable for security, and downloads Kodi add-ons directly from developers on the fly, meaning everything is always up to date.
TV-Addons says the new tool will replace outdated Kodi builds, which famously “pose a risk to users due to their large size and abundance of different files from many sources”. Batch Installer is configured using one simple file that controls everything.
