Testing your Addon
To test your addon, you will need to add the addon manifest URL to a client.
There are currently two such clients that you can test with:
Stremio Web Version
Note: if you want to load an addon by URL in Stremio, the URL must either be accessed on
127.0.0.1 or support HTTPS.
If you're using the
serveHTTP method, there are two shortcuts that you can use:
If you launch your addon with
npm start -- --launch, it will open a web version of Stremio with the addon pre-installed.
Another shortcut is to use
npm start -- --install, which will open the desktop version of Stremio and a prompt to install the addon.
Testing in Stremio App
Testing in Stremio is easy, simply download Stremio v4.4.10+ (latest beta from the site)
Testing in Stremio Web Version
Open the web version of Stremio at: https://app.strem.io/shell-v4.4/
If you use
npm start -- --launch, the addon will launch at https://staging.strem.io, which is a staging (development) version of Stremio.
Note: Torrents will not work in Stremio's Web Version.
