Inactive [ADMN] CraftBukkitUpToDate v2.6.7 - Keep your Server/Plugins up to date [1185]

Discussion in 'Inactive/Unsupported Plugins' started by NoFear13, Feb 20, 2011.

  1. 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
      • Pail Gui-Support check Thread for more infos
    For Linux-User, if you like to move your new plugins automaticly, try the script from Myx0x3:

    If you're having issues with your plugin loading before Permissions, you should start listening for PLUGIN_ENABLE events then bind to Permissions when you see its event. Also you may wish to put a null check for the Permissions plugin binding at CBUTD load. :)

    If you have any questions on this, I'd be more than happy to help out. :)
    (Or you could look at my Wormhole X-Treme code here, here and here for doing both of these types of events. )


    I think I misread the post above. My bad. :|

  4. Thanks for the tip. I will check this at this evening.
    I added this yesterday, i check every day for new plugins and if I can add it. So if you have a permanent link at your new plugin you not have to tell me because normally I will add it automaticly.

    To Everyone with this error:

    2011-03-23 17:35:05 [SEVERE] BLOCK_PLACED loading CraftBukkitUpToDate v2.1.3 (Is it up to date?)
    java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: BLOCK_PLACED
    This has nothing to do with The Plugins.
    CraftBukkit did a change to the eventtype from "Block_Placed" to "Block_Place" with on of the last updates. (Don't ask me why they changed the eventname...)

    Just rollback CraftBukkit to Build 556.

    You have to wait until the plugins are updated, or Bukkit changes its behavior again!

    If you use this method of loading Permissions (along with the new tense changes from Enabled to Enable etc...), bukkit will stop blaming your plugin for Permissions breaking.
  10. Thanks for the tip, alron has said the same, tonight i will not be able to test the changes I will implement this tommorow.

    You know i like everything short, so it would be nice if you could also add a /cbutd command :D ^^
  12. Offline


    Could you add 2 properties please?
    First one is: Don't print "new version available to console" but still print to admins on the server
    Second one: Don't check plugins on server start. It's usefull for me because whenever before updating server, i update plugins first, so it's useless for me.
  13. Added.
    I will add this in the next Version.

    By the way, Version 2.2.0 released. 80% faster plugin-Update-Check :D

    Set automaticUpdatePlugins=false
    and broadcastOnlyToOps=true

    What's going on with the Persistence plugin updating? It keeps downloading this check file and no actual plugin update. Is something wrong with the permanent link or something?
  16. Changed. Thanks for the tip.

    All of them require direct link. No archives, no versioning in them. Please check main post before posting links

    yea only .jar because its terrible if you have a .rar in your plugins folder
  20. Offline


    On this note I've also noticed that the plugin doesn't seem to be downloading the .check files for when it downloads new craftbukkit builds either. Every time I start up the server it tells me theres a new version of craftbukkit even though it downloaded that version, or at least it told me it did, when i started up. I don't even know for sure if it's actually downloading the new versions.

    EDIT: The console is also telling me the link for the NetherGate plugin is incorrect, as well as persistance. But I'm guessing these will be fixed like you said in the next release.

    Dear, there is no need to hammer my site every 60 seconds looking for an update. Stop it.

    @NoFear13 Please hard code a minimum interval of at least an hour for dumb people who think they get some sort of benefit from filling up my access logs. There's no good reason to be checking any more often than that, and there are extremely few good reasons to check even that often.

    they are the creators update each link I would have told you this 2 weeks ago but i researchewd on the correct links.
  23. I looked at my log from yesterday, he's only checked 16 times from 21:00 UTC+1 until 23:00 UTC+1, not every 60 seconds. But I will implement a minimum interval for the plugin-Command.
    But there's a second check at Server-Startup and I think nobody whould start his server every x Seconds.
    As always, I will implement a minimum Interval and let you know when it's finished. After that let me know if you have still problems.

    Have a question/rant.

    I have started using this and I have noticed a few things:
    - Some plugin links are not .jar's, but are .zip and the nasty .rar and other such annoyances
    - When you install the .jar, they do not always contain all their own dependencies (I am not talking about plugins requiring things like iConomy, I mean things like using sqlite or mysql or whatever-the-heck-else), so you have to install further crap to the base directory or to a lib folder under the base directory
    - Not all .jar's generate their own configuration files, which at worst I have experienced the plugin puking Exceptions all over the console, and at worst just using default (which it should still write out so they can be edited)
    - And worst of all, not all auto-updating .jar's work with the latest recommended craftbukkit, quite frankly that should be a requirement, because I keep getting this occasional ones that have not worked with the recommended for *weeks* and some others that only work on the newer ones (then why are they putting that one on the auto-update link!?!), so I get nice random plugin failures at times due to these decisions of the plugin authors.

    Would there be any chance of altering and changing this auto-update-downloader plugin to handle these more poorly designed plugins without causing the servers to die because of them?

    A few ideas:
    - Make it a hard requirement to work with the latest recommended craftbukkit, if one is discovered that does not then it should be removed from the list, preferably complaining very loudly.
    - Make a kind of apt or port-like system to handle dependencies and such, as such would auto-uninstall jar's if they are incompatible with the current running version, this however would require a little more meta-data on the part of the plugin authors so instead of just giving a .jar they could, at worst, give a link that is specialized based on the recommended craftbukkit version (something like$s/myplugin.jar where $s would be replaced with the recommended craftbukkit version, at the moment 556), or at best, a meta-file that they should supply a link to instead of the .jar, that file should contain a listing of lines of something like "512-556: http://<etc...>" to signify which to download for which version, each link should be the latest version of the plugin that works with the defined versions or so, and this is just a quick thought, perhaps better ways as well.

    What brought this wall-of-text post up are the fact I have things like MineCartMania breaking because it updated to a version that only works past the current recommended version of craftbukkit, and I have been making an updater of my own. Specifically I am running on linux, I have been using and growing a management script, which originally I started to let me run the server as a headless daemon on server startup, but it grew into a full remote management script and been adding more and more over time. Specifically I can drop this script into a directory, type "./ start" and it will download the latest recommended craftbukkit version, set up basic plugins (which involves just this plugin right now because I eat things out of it, described later). I can then do things like "./ stop" to stop the daemon, then do something like "./ plugin-install Essentials", it then looks up the line that starts with "Essentials.jar" in ./plugins/CraftBukkitUpToDate/ (I love the fact that this plugin creates all its own necessary files), downloads it and installs it to the plugins folder if it is a jar, if it is a zip (or .rar or .7z or .tar.gz or anything that is not a .jar) it saves it to a temporary directory tries to extract out the "Essentials.jar" out of it and drops it in the plugins folder, if it cannot it just mentions that it cannot and tells the user to do it themselves while passing back the location of where it stored the zip. What really sucks is when the plugins update and are broken with the latest recommended (which my script also keeps it updated to upon request, not automatically, bad experiences with near every plugin breaking when I do that).

    From a plugin developer's perspective, the advantage to CButD is that people will update their plugins quickly when we release a new version.

    The disadvantage is that people will be updating CraftBukkit just as rapidly, which doesn't give us a lot of time to respond when an API we rely on is removed (or renamed).

    Really, it's just life on the bleeding-edge though. I'd never update my server without first making a backup, and I'd certainly never set my server to auto-update itself.

    My script makes complete backups on every startup and shutdown (and during if I tell it), so that is not an issue.
    I just do not understand why at the very least the plugin authors make a version that only works with what is newer then the recommended build and have it be put in the update link instead of waiting and using a separate link for the newer-then-recommended.
  30. Added. Thanks.
    I have added this a few weeks ago. Didn't work?
    Changed. Thanks.

    Minimum interval implemented, let me know if you have again problems.
