Build Commands (Add-ons)

The build-system also builds a range of LibreELEC or Kodi binary add-ons. These follow the same basic build command syntax as an image build, e.g. to build Tvheadend 4.2

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon tvheadend42

To compile all game.libretro add-ons:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon game.*

To compile all https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/tree/master/packages/mediacenter/kodi-binary-addons:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon binary

To compile all https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/tree/master/packages/addons:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon official

To compile all add-ons:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon all

It is also posssible to exclude specific add-ons:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon all -game.* -official -pvr.hts

To log errors to the $BUILD/logs/ directory:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon all --write-logs=errors

To show help and list all add-on building functions:

PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 scripts/create_addon --help

Note

In LibreELEC 10.x and newer ARM SoC devices (Allwinner, Amlogic, NXP, Qualcomm, Rockchip, Samsung) use the ARMv7 or ARMv8 project. This project uses a minimal distro configuration (disabling most features) to reduce the overall time spent on building add-on dependencies.

PROJECT=ARM ARCH=arm DEVICE=ARMv7 scripts/create_addon all
PROJECT=ARM ARCH=arm DEVICE=ARMv8 scripts/create_addon all
