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:
    or for more features use the one from Tealk:

    How does this work exactly? And do you only support plugins in the Plugin Releases forum, or do you also support plugins in Plugin Submissions, because I have one I want to add to this, but I'm a little confused, do I just give you a link to download it, and you do the rest?
  3. Yes you give me a link and I add it, if your Plugin a submission or released-Version doesn't matter.
    For this reason I added PoopBlock a moment ago.

    If it's right, you got a permanent link to the latest version of Essentials. Can you add it, because CBUTD is giving No Source messages.

    Thank you in advance.

    When updating bFlight i get the following information:

    Can you make the Plugin creating a list of don't supportet plugins?
    I think this is a better help for looking for a newer version.

    If you can do this, thx

    oh yes. the new site would be a problem for craftbukkituptodate. Because the "new versions" all have different URLS.

    None of your plugin have a permanent link so nothing added, or I'm wrong if so please post the permanent links to your plugins.
    Btw... you can choose in which folder the updates downloaded. Check the downloadFolder-Option in the

    May I also get an answer:
  21. In the future I only support addons that posted to so no longer any problems with permanent links or something like that. If the plugin submitted on I support it else not.

    Any chance you could add a descriptive Useragent header? It'd be nice to be able to tell this apart from any other Java stuff that might be hitting my server :)
  23. Since today only plugins from supported. For this reason I no longer send requests to your server. I guess this is a other plugin. Btw... before that I set the Useragent to CraftBukkitUpToDate, so the Java-Request don't send from my plugin.

    He answered you perfectly. He said he'll no longer send a request to your server. So there's no need to set the header.
  26. Offline


    No, he didn't.

    1. "Since today only plugins from supported. For this reason I no longer send requests to your server. I guess this is a other plugin." - Both of my currently-released plugins are on They were only added yesterday and today, but still. The sentence above makes no sense in context.

    2. "Btw... before that I set the Useragent to CraftBukkitUpToDate, so the Java-Request don't send from my plugin." - I cannot decipher this. "before" as in already, or "before" as in some pre-requisite?

    I have hundreds of requests on in my logs from Java. I can assume that most, if not all, are/were from CBUTD, but it would be nice if CBUTD specified more than just "Java", in case I ever need to filter requests from some other Java application. I'd be happy with any of "yes it will be done", "no it will not be done", or "it is already done".
  27. It was already done, if this help you. But with the change to it's no longer needed, because all files hostet at there.

    Sry, if my message was a little bit confusing.

    I really hope you reconsider that, because it is a serious inconvenience to anybody who finds Curse's site and development "tools" lacking.
  29. There is nothing to reconside because there is a rss-Feed which I can check for newer version, so it take not much traffic to check for new updates.

    I second this! I am not planning on using BukkitDev as it is just another thing I would need to keep updated. Right now, my plugins are all very happy on github and have been downloaded more than 30k times. I do see the argument though for the RSS feed.
