If you are using Kodi 17 Krypton you are probably wondering how to add custom menu items or widgets. Estuary is not as mature as Confluence or other popular skins so there aren’t many customization options available yet. Luckily for us there’s Estuary Mod.
Estuary Mod is a skin based on Estuary with a lot of new features, developed by Guilouz, Estuary Mod will let us create custom menu items and add a couple of widgets to our Home Screen. Go to the official thread on Kodi Community Forum and download the zip file.
In this tutorial we are going to use Exodus and Trakt to create a custom menu item for TV shows similar to the one available when using library integration, check our guides on how to install Exodus or Exodus and Trakt if you need any help.
To install Estuary Mod go to “Settings” > “Addons” > “Install from zip file” and select the file you’ve downloaded. Wait a couple of second until you are prompted to switch skins. Once you have Estuary Mod installed we are ready to begin.
We’ve created a new menu item, if you go to the Home Screen you should see “My Shows” on the menu; clicking on it will take you to your Trakt TV collection. Now let’s add some widgets.
You can add up to 4 widgets for each menu item, there are some extra widgets on the ExtendedInfo Script addon, check them out. Now lets create some sub-menu items.
There it is, fully customized Estuary. Keep in mind that all of this is in alpha state so some bugs are expected, also some features like Nextup Service Notification won’t work without library integration so it won’t work with Exodus either.
