the new boxee API enables developers to build sophisticated applications (such as the Pandora and RadioTime apps) using a set of API calls in Python and writing the GUI using XML.
we started boxee based on features and content we wanted in our own living rooms.
we introduced additional content and features based on user feedback.
we have created the new API to further democratize the process.
we want to provide developers with easy tools to create new applications and share them.
users can install new applications via the boxee App Box, the beginnings of our app store. unlike other app stores, boxee does not want to be a gate keeper (or bottleneck) in deciding which applications are published so anyone can become a publisher. publishers can each create a different repository of applications they host. to add an app from their repository, just add it to my repositories in boxee. for example, boxeehq publishes their applications using their own repository (dir.boxeehq.com).
weve also set up a developer section on the boxee forum and are looking forward to hearing your feedback on the API, issues you are having, stuff you would like us to add or do differently, etc. the forum is also a good place to connect with other boxee developers and share information about what youre working on.
