    Like anything, it depends on the kind of addon and what functionality you want. If you know python it becomes pretty easy.

    I'm not much of a coder myself (an engineer) but from time to time I tinker. This specific addon was easy because there are several similar addons out there. All I really had to do was modify it for the 97.1 stream To do that I had to find a stream URL I could use. Along time ago they use to have essentially a shoutcast stream so this would have been easier. But now they use their own built in web player.

    Basically I had to search for an alternative site and then look at the html source. I think I ended up finding the streams in the source of Ohio Radio or Tune in ... something like that. This addon would have a been a pretty simple for anyone who is competent at modifying code frankly.

    Creating a complex addon from scratch is a whole new ballgame. But again, if you learn python it becomes much easier to start from the ground up. If interested, just download some addons and take a look at their source code (generally the .py file).

    I knew a girl named Kodi I wouldn't have minded installing on my stick, and I'm scared of pythons. That's what I got out of this thread.

    We use some python at work. It really simplifies many of the database and display functions we use.

    Yeah, it's a very robust language and one of the easiest to learn.
