How to add custom external links to your Tonido

Tonido not only allows seamless access to your files and media, it truly is your personal hub.

With the latest Tonido 2.10.x release, there is a new feature to customize the apps that are shown in the navigation tree. You are no longer limited by the apps Tonido provides, but you can add your own custom app that is a simple link to another website .

This allows you to get quick access to that website from within Tonido.  For example, if you have other web servers or services running in your home, you can point to those too making Tonido a single place to access your stuff.



Here’s how you do it:

1) Download the following zip file (for a link)


2) Unzip the folder inside

3) Copy the folder to your Tonido install directory, into the directory called “plugins”

4) (Optional) Edit the manifest.xml and change the “AppURL” value to whatever you want

5) Restart Tonido

6) Your new app should show up in the Apps Navigation Tree

7) Enjoy!

You can customize the icons shown by replacing the two icons that are in that directory, icon.gif and iconbg.gif. You can also disable them from appearing by “suspending” these apps like normal Tonido apps. You can also delete them in one click.

We have started a Tonido Forums thread here, that will have user-created zips for various things in the future. For now, it has a and external links.
Feel free to create your own and contribute.
