I have been toying with the idea of adding support for the entware package manager to CoreELEC.
Entware is similar to apt/yum/pacman in that it will allow you to install over 2000+ linux applications with ease, no longer would there be a need to use docker or hacky addons to install your favourite applications.
This is something that some people in their infinite wisdom have resisted users calls to add in the past, entware packages were designed originally to run on routers and other low powered ARM based devices so I do not foresee it causing us any issues and will likely only be something that power users will be interested in.
Do you want to install a http server? that’s no problem, just type
opkg install apache in SSH.
Why not use your cheap media center box for more than just Kodi!
I would like to hear users thoughts on the idea.
