    After the plugin detect a new build, it download to bukkit_update in the main-Folder. After that you must stop your server and copy the craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar from bukkit_update to your main-Folder.​
    After Version 1.4 I support plugins if a new version found it download to build_update/plugins. After that stop your server and copy/move the new files to your plugin-Folder

    This is no autoupdater, it only download the new Version do the update-Folder, the user have to copy the files. On this way, he know which plugins he update and can check if he like to update.

    I recommend to save your old craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar/plugin before update. Not all builds from CraftBukkit work correctly.

    For more infos and download:

    • Download the newest build to build_update
    • Config-File in plugins/CraftBukkitUpToDate/
      • to enable/disable automatic download
      • choose between stable or recommended Builds
      • set craftBukkitName (Default: craftbukkit-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar)
      • deactivate pluginLog
      • deactivate craftBukkitUpdateCheck
      • blacklist to add Plugins, you don't want to update (blacklist=test1.jar;test2.jar)
      • deactivate automatic pluginUpdateCheck
      • deactivate serverLog if new Version available (broadcastOnlyToOps=true)
    • Check for update in a configurable period
      Configurable in in milliseconds lowest value is 300000 (5 min), standard is 1800000 (30 min)
    • Broadcast if new update available (To all Ops, or via Permissions).
      Configurable in default value is true
    • Command to download every build you like. Example: If you like to download build 400 you type /craftbukkituptodate download 400 or /uptodate download 400
    • Command to show changelog for BukkitBuild. Example: If you like to show changelog for Build 431 type /craftbukkituptodate changelog 431 or /uptodate changelog 431
    • Command to start plugin-Check, to start type /uptodate plugin
    • Command to start the update-Check, to start type /uptodate update
    • All commands work also at Server-Console type only craftbukkituptodate or uptodate without /
    • Automaticly download new updates for Plugins
      • Download new updates in build_update/plugins
      • with links to the plugins, this one download automaticly if a new one at my server
    • Permissions:
      Permissions/GroupManager is optional else only ops can use the commands.
      Available permission nodes are (case sensitive):
      • craftbukkituptodate.broadcast - these users get a message if a new build available
      • - these users can use download-Command
      • craftbukkituptodate.changelog - these users can use changelog-Command
      • craftbukkituptodate.plugin - these users can use plugin-Command
      • craftbukkituptodate.update - these users can use the update-Command

    Is there any way you can parse an RSS feed or even just a plain text file for latest plugin URLs? Only I like to give each revision its own URL such that it is easily identifiable that the file has changed.

    An RSS feed would also make it trivial to check timestamps for new revisions.

    i asked some plugin-authors to give up their link, but got this reply:
    now i feel like a mailman
  8. Offline


    Great idea, could you make one I will check how I could implement it. Thanks for the great idea.

    It supports html redirects, anybody said something else? If he could give me a php-Script with a redirect to the newest version I could use it.

    Mailman:p, could you ask him if he could get me a php-Script to his newest Version? Thank you.

    Thinking about it subsequently, YAML seems like a better fit really.

    Anyway, here are my two suggested file formats:

    The RSS version abuses the meaning of some of the tags e.g. description for version number. For that, and reasons of simplicity, I think the YAML version is the better fit.

    Another suggestion I'd make is that you ask plugin authors to add a line to their "plugin.yml" file specifying where their "updates.yml" is located. That way, you never need keep adding URLs to your plugin and keep updating it: it can all be totally decentralized. For example:

    • I assume you're scanning the plugin dir already for jar files. So, peek inside each jar file
    • Check for a line e.g. "cbu2d:"
    • Download that file, which would be something like the one above
    • Use those details to work out whether to download a new copy of the plugin
    All just a rather over-the-top suggestion though :)

    I didn't like yml because there's no real standard-Parser, xml-Files like rss can parse with many default-Parsers. And if you escape your informations all works fine with xml. For that I will implement the rss-Version, thanks for your work. I write back if finished.

    Implemented. Give me your final link and I will add it.

    BoundaryKill, OddItem and OddGive added.
    PorteCoulissante added a few days ago.
    QuickStrasse - I have a little problem with php-Downloads, because I have no file-Size or Modification-Timestamp and I didn't like the idea to download the complete file to check for a update. I work on a solution.

    Thx for fix :eek:)

    NextStation removed, because he chaged his link to a none-permanent link.
    DeathTpPlus fixed.

    For this one I need no check-File because I can check the timestamp update your plugin ones and it works.

    Added. Thank you for your support and help.

    Will it also pick up brand new plugins as I add them to the RSS file?
  19. Offline


    No, but I check the new plugin-Thread every day and if there a new plugin from you I will check your rss and add it.
    This is because I have a reference Plugin=link and didn't won't check each rss-Feed for each User because this could be a little bit exaggerated.

    FlowControl supported since a few weeks and Flatearth is no permanent link.

    I saw that the links of my plugins are used in this plugin. I have to say that this plugin really helps keeping Bukkit upTodate.

    Alongside of PrivateWarp and PluginControl I have another one (url) you could add:
    Based off of PrivateWarp except that it's global (not per player).

    I have all my url's and downloads listed here (might come in handy):

    The Power Armour Plugin by Cyklo keeps saying it's updated even though I have the latest version. I've already updated it once, cause I figured it was like the other zip files that you have to update once but it still does it. I think there might be some problem with you new RSS code.

    hi, sorry but i hate it that some plugins are in a .rar thats terrible for my start script
    its possible to edit this with a var to deaktivate or anything else?
  27. Offline


    This is a permissions-Problem not a CButD, ask the Author of Permissions no idea. By the way, had I said that i shout rename my plugin to zzCraftBukkitUpToDate so this isn't the first plugin that use Permissions.
    Added. Thanks for the link I'm very happy that I could support your plugin now.
    I have an idea I will check and fix this in the next few hours.

    Fixed. The update shout only downloaded at the next startup after that it shout work.

    Hi i have write a Minecraft Server Startscript for Linux and have now add CraftBukkitUpToDate
    You can found it here

    Cool, thank you. I will link to it at my first post. Have you fixed the rar-Problem or is this still a problem?
    If so, I can try to write a automatic Extractor which can activate in the properties.
  30. Offline


    i can write it too but i have think it would be easyer if all pluginmaker would use only the java,
    because i dont know how i set that i only copy the jar and if i copy all the config will overwrite.
    I dont think that Serverowner would have it.
    ATM it copy the rar in the plugin folder
    and one question, its possible to make a single comand to download bukkit, because its a problem to say im my script whitch version is the newest, so if you can add a comand for download the newest or the newest stable version so i can add it too^^

    PS sorry for my terrible englisch :p

    if you use "uptodate download" without a buildNumber it download the newest.

    P.S. Ich hab an alles gedacht:p
