Elder Scrolls Online Commadline Addon Manager

Elder Scrolls Online addon manager and a Tamriel Trade Centre price table updater.

MIT License

It is recommended that you back up your ESO live profile before using eso-banana in case you want to revert back.

On Windows, press Windows Key + e to open a file explorer and enter the following path in the address bar:

%HOME%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\

or on Windows 11

Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\

Make a copy of the live folder and rename it to something meaningful like old or backup.

Usage

Follow the installation instructions for your platform:

On first run, the addons.text file will be created in your ESO live directory. It will look similar to the following:

https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info7-LibAddonMenu.html
https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1245-TamrielTradeCentre.html
https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1146-LibCustomMenu.html

Add the ESOUI url for each additional addon you wish to keep updated. Make sure to include the www. indicator that ESOUI requires for some stupid reason.
