I thought I was ready for some beta testing of the Slide Tweeter AddOn. Unfortunately, I’ve run into a snag with authenticating some of the code.
When you install and Addon from Google, it’s in something called
AuthMode.NONE which significantly limits access to certain data. This is a good thing because you don’t want Addons running through your account changing things the minute you install it. Anyways, once it’s installed, you can then prompt the user to enable the Addon, which gives it access to all the necessary permissions.
I’m working on moving permissions around so it installs and adds a menu successfully before activating the Addon. It’s turning into more of a trick than I thought it would.
