Hello,

I'm looking for someone who is a coder/skinner for Kodi and can help me with enhancing some standard skin functions, which I had back in Kodi 15, but which were removed by introducing a new Skin in Kodi 17.
(btw: I’m running OpenElec on a RP2, using a AppleTV Remote as a Remote Controller)

I did changed some of the functions of the default skin „Confluence“ for Kodi 15, but now, I'm too busy/lazy/nooby to apply my knowledge to the new skin „Estuary"...
Thats the reason, I'd like to pay for the luxuriousness of getting things done by others. Please tell me, how much you like to get for your work/time.

When I receive the modified files, I will textcompare them with the originals and will hopefully learn by reproduceing and copy changed codesnippets :-)


What do I need? (see References/Screenshots at the end of this posting)

I’d like to enhance mainly the contextual menu on the main screen, but also I don’t want to see the clock. never.

So my requests would be:


1)
Enhance the Movie-Contextmenu while on the  HomeScreen:
Add a „Manage…“ entry for the selected Movie.
After chosing „Manage…“ the standard „Manage…“ contextmenu should open.
The „Manage…“ entry should be available on the sections „In Progress Movies“, „Unwatched Movies“, and „Recently Added Episodes“


2)
Enhance the TV Shows-Contextmenu while on the  HomeScreen:
Add a „Manage…“ entry for the selected Movie.
After chosing „Manage…“ the standard „Manage…“ contextmenu should open.
The „Manage…“ entry should be available on the sections „In Progress TVShows“, „Unwatched TVShows “, „Random Movies“ and „Recently Added Movies“


3)
Enhance the Music-Contextmenu while on the HomeScreen:
Add a „Play“ and a "Queue Item" entry for the selected Album/Artist from the Music Section of the HomeScreen.
After chosing „Play“ or "Queue Item", the selected Album should start playing or queue the selected album. (If it is possible, to play all music of the selected Artist too, this will be great. If not, no problem.)
The „Play“ and "Queue Item" entry should be available on the sections „Most Played Albums“, „Unplayed Albums“, „Random Artists“, „Random Albums“, „Recently Added Albums“ and „Recently Played Albums"


4)
No Big Clock anymore in the upper right corner of the screen. (On some video files, a "subclock-info" is shown: "video ends at <time>", which I don't mind if it is shown. But no big clock/time)



Please let me know, if someone is willing to spend some time for this, or will/can help me with editing the corresp. XML files (which I don’t know).

Any input would be appreciated.
