You can follow this step-by-step tutorial to install the Indigo addon installer for Kodi. We have prepared this guide so that you get the most out of your leisure time rather than ending up wasting it configuring Kodi.
Kodi, the open-source media player software is known for its support for extensions. The extensions are known as “add-ons” among Kodi’s userbase. Kodi add-ons generally behave like regular apps, making the media player more of a standalone operating system.
Assuming you have used Kodi before, you already know about the existence of an official add-on repository, offering 100+ unique add-ons for the masses. Having said that, Kodi also allows users to install community repositories and add-ons.
It’s one of the primary reasons why Kodi has seen a staggering boost in userbase in the last few years.
However, it consumes plenty of time to install add-ons from third-party repositories, as it usually involves more than a dozen steps to follow. If you ever have to reinstall Kodi, installing all your favorite add-ons one-by-one is a lot of hassle.
Thankfully, the Indigo addon installer for Kodi from TVAddons offers a solution to this issue. You can use it to install hundreds of other popular add-ons and repositories on Kodi without having to go through the same procedure over and over again.
What does the Indigo Kodi Addon Installer Offer?
Indigo is a successor to the Fusion program add-on, which made add-on installation easier and offered one-click access to a vast library of Kodi add-ons, repositories, and maintenance tools.
You can pick up your preferred add-ons from Indigo’s trusted repository sources, or install them manually from download URLs.
Indigo isn’t just an add-on installer. It also gives you access to dozens of utilities and tools, including auto-maintenance, add-on wiper, backup/restore, config wizard, debugging mode, network speed test, and many more.
The Indigo add-on is compatible with Kodi v17 Krypton and the all newer versions of Kodi. Personally, it has saved us a lot of time when trying out new video add-ons. We advise you to refer to the later section in this guide to learn how to use Indigo’s add-on installer tool.
Addon Installer for Kodi / XBMC: Install in 1 Minute
Indigo is available on TVAddons’ Fusion source (not to be confused with the Fusion program add-on), which itself offers access to dozens of popular Kodi repositories.
You can install Indigo like most other third-party Kodi add-ons. We have given detailed steps that you can follow to install Indigo from the Fusion source.
Step 1: Allow Installation of Unknown Add-ons
As you probably know, you can’t install apps from external sources on Android unless you manually allow it. The same applies to Kodi, which requires you to enable a setting before you can install add-ons from unknown sources. Here’s what you need to do:
- First, open the Kodi app from your device’s home screen.
- Go to Settings by clicking the cogwheel icon on the Kodi home screen’s upper-left corner.
- Scroll down and click System in the Settings menu. If you are still using Kodi v17.x Krypton, click System Settings.
- Next, select the Add-ons option from the sidebar, then toggle on Unknown sources.
- Ignore the warning and click Yes. The Indigo add-on and its repository sources are trusted and safe to install.
Step 2: Add the Fusion Source
As mentioned earlier, Fusion is the official source of the Indigo add-on installer. You can easily add the Fusion source to Kodi by following the steps below.
- Head over to the Kodi Settings screen and select File manager.
- After that, go down and click Add source on the File Manager page. It should open up the “Add file source”
- Select <None> in the new window and enter the source link: http://fusion.tvaddons.co. Click OK to save it.
- Now click the bottom text field in the window and enter the “Fusion” name. You can type in something else as well.
- Finally, click OK to save the Fusion source. As long as you don’t get an error message, it should be saved on Kodi.
Note that the process above applies to both Kodi Krypton and new versions of Kodi.
Step 3: Install the Indigo Program Addon
Assuming you have added the Fusion source, you are now just a few clicks away from installing the Indigo addon on Kodi. The following steps will guide you through the installation process:
- Visit the Kodi Settings screen once again and click the Add-ons It’s a shortcut to the Add-on browser page, which you can access from the Add-ons tab on the Kodi home screen as well.
- On the Add-on browser page, click the “Install from zip file” option, and then select Fusion from the sources list.
- Now open the begin-here folder on the root directory and click the program.indigo-x.x.x.zip file.
- If you see a prompt on the screen regarding the installation of additional scripts and dependencies, click OK to proceed. Otherwise, the Indigo add-on won’t work.
Once you see the “Indigo Add-on installed” notification, you can launch the Indigo add-on from the Add-ons tab on the Kodi home screen. It should be listed right below the Program add-ons row.
If you get a pop-up message from TVAddons, click the Dismiss button to close it. It won’t annoy you later again.

Guide to Use Indigo’s Addon Installer on Kodi
When you launch the Indigo add-on for the first time, it should take half a minute to download the icons and prepare itself for usage. Once you see the Indigo add-on contents on the screen, click the Addon Installer option.
On the following screen, you should see Video Addons, Audio Addons, Program Addons, International Addons, etc. It’s almost like a third-party storefront for add-ons. In addition, you can manually search for your favorite Kodi add-ons from the “Search by Addon/Author” option.
If you can’t find your favorite add-on in Indigo’s library, scroll down and click the Install ZIP from Online Link option, then enter the download URL of the add-on zip file that you wish to install. If Indigo recognizes the zip file, it should automatically sideload the add-on on Kodi.
From the same screen, you can also install TVAddons’ Git Browser tool, which lets you download Kodi add-ons from official GitHub sources. It also has a batch add-on installer you can use to install and update multiple third-party add-ons at one go.
While you explore Indigo’s vast add-on library, be sure to check out the maintenance tools and utilities as well. Furthermore, you can extensively personalize the Kodi interface from the Kodi Skins section on the Addon Installer screen.
Indigo is an excellent addon installer for Kodi. If you frequently shuffle your Kodi add-on collection with new ones, the Indigo add-on installer will save you a lot of time. It also offers a batch uninstaller, which you can use to remove redundant add-ons from Kodi efficiently.
To try out new repositories, check out the Fusion source you added earlier on Kodi to install the Indigo program add-on. Most of them are cross-compatible with the latest and older Kodi versions.
