FULL LIST OF THE BEST KODI FORKS (UPDATED NOVEMBER 2018)
Are you looking for the latest (working) and best Kodi forks? This is the latest updated list of all the current Forks from Kodi 16.0-18 Leia
There are many Forks available for Android, Firestick, iOS and windows available! One of the best Kodi Forks as we know it, was SPMC, but sadly Koying ceased development and moved to another Media Center project.
What is a Kodi Fork?
Well, simply put, it is another version of Kodi that is customised to look or feel different with the possibility for additional features, improvements, changes, or to have the ability to run multiple versions of Kodi on the same device (under a different name). Kodi/XBMC Foundation allows the use of Kodi Forks to be made public ally available. In fact one of my previous projects (Nodi) is referenced on their Forks page – Found here.
Here is a definition of a Fork….
The concept of forking a project has existed for decades in free and open source software. To “fork” means to take a copy of the project, rename it, and start a new project and community around the copy. Those who fork a project rarely, if ever, contribute to the parent project again. It’s the software equivalent of the Robert Frost poem: Two paths diverged in a codebase and I, I took the one less TRAVELLED by…and that has made all the difference.
There can be many reasons for a project fork. Perhaps the project has lain fallow for a while and someone wants to revive it. Perhaps the company that has underwritten the project has been acquired and the community is afraid that the new parent company may close the project. Or perhaps there’s a schism within the community itself, where a portion of the community has decided to go a different direction with the project. Often a project fork is accompanied by a great deal of discussion and possibly also community strife. Whatever the reason, a project fork is the copying of a project with the purpose of creating a new and separate community around it. While the fork does require some technical work, it is primarily a social action.
