Preen Skin Manager: Select, install and update skins for Plex 9 on Macintosh.
Available at http://anomiesoftwar...ware/Preen.html

Preenshot2.png

Features:


  • One central app to browse many of the great skins available for Plex.
  • One easy button to update your Plex skins to their latest versions.
  • No need to download a new version of the software when new skins are released; Preen checks a central database of skins.
  • Manual or automatic use. Check for updates manually using the provided buttons or leave Preen running in the background and it will automatically find new skins and update you to the latest version every 24 hours.

Requirements:


  • An installation of git is highly recommended, though no longer necessary. You can download and install it from here.
  • Preen must be run on the same computer as Plex.
  • Plex 0.9

Thanks:


  • Preen is made possible because of the PlexSkinUpdater by Maverick214.
  • Plex skin screenshots courtesy of El Massman.
  • Launch skins are linked with permission from Maverick214, El Massman and reddraggon220
  • The Plex development team for general awesomeness.

Great work, would be even better if Skin Settings could also be configured through this app... that way, the new Plex/Nine client would really, really become a thin client...
