Apple TV Plugin

Would one of you awesome plugin developers be willing to look at this and see if you can make an Apple TV plugin out of it? :D

Actually this would probably be what you would need to work with:

That module is for python 3. EG uses python 2.7. This will likely be possible in the future, but not with current versions of EG.

We are currently working on making a variant of EG that does run python 3.5. it is still a ways off. But it is something that you will be able to do.

a very optimistic timeline would be a year out. Ya never know. ya never know I may get a wild hair across my ass to get it done faster. or I may win the lotto and pay someone to do it.

The problem is not so much with EG it's self. The problem is with the 350+ plugins. I do not want to make additional work for the plugin developers. There may be no way around it either.
so we will give the developers time to address any issues/changes before we would even think of releasing it. at the very least for a few months.

I have a running test version and it still needs work. It does run. The biggest hurdle was getting the core to operate properly and it does.
If you like the work I have been doing then feel free to Image
