Project Goals

Plugin Framework

Develop a framework friendly to plugins that allows easy expansion of the application.

Plugin types may be:

Replace Existing RetroArcher.bundle

RetroArcher.bundle has been renamed to RetroArcher-plex and it has significantly changed:

  • No longer responsible for scanning games

  • No longer responsible for connecting to clients

  • No longer responsible for starting games

  • No longer gets metadata from IGDB

    • Metadata is now collected from our own db based on IGDB.

    • In the future metadata will be collected by this server application, and the Plex plugin will make an API request to this server to get the metadata.
