Plugins auto-update

Post by Joco1114 » Fri 05 Feb, 2010 07:16

It would be very useful if plugins can update themselves automatically.

It would be really nice to have the possibility to automatically update the plugins.
For FAR we already have the Updater plugin, maybe that one can be modified to also look for plugins :?:

imho, this feature very hard to implement without plugring - centralized plugins site

Yes, this auto update for the plug ins. I bet this would just need very little work as there is already an existing and working updater plug in. It would just need to be tweaked a little to get the plugin updates as well. Though, you would need a central repository for the plugins to be updated as it will be hard to scavenge for update links.

I know this is an old thread, but i thought I'd let people know that there is a plugin called "Renewal" for FAR3 that can also upgrade other plugins if they are configured to support it.
The plugin can be found at http://code.google.com/p/farplugs.
