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

    Hello NoFear13,
    wouldn't it be easier for the plugin developers if they could provide a link via plugins.yml, like:

    name: xWarp
    version: 2.6.0-hmod b1
    main: me.taylorkelly.mywarp.MyWarp
      - 'xZise'
      - 'tkelly'
        description: Warp commands
        usage: /<command> help - Displays the help for xWarp
    parser: Quoted

    But how could you test if a version is newer? I mean the version system is not standardized. And what are the header informations?


    PS: And btw you could add the link ;)
  3. Offline


    @xZise: He checks if the file exists on web server (i think he does) first, and then he compares the file checksums or size of it (im not sure, didn't see), and download if needed
  4. Offline


    But how do you a checksum without download the file ;) I don't know how HTTP(S) could support this.

    Yerks the code tag is quite buged... So I try it without showing an example (before it again break my post with my plugin.yml). My suggestion would be to add a value where the link to the newest version is given.

  5. Offline


  6. If each Plugin-Developer must change his plugin.yml to support my Plugin it's difficult for him, also I test each link because I have to change the github-Links, because github redirect via a from Java unsupported method.

    Via HTTP(S) you can check the fileHeader, because the Browser need the exact FileSize to download the file (For that reason your Browser now the exakt FileSize and how long it took, to download it). But the FileSize is only my fallback, the most webservers sends the last modification timestamp for a file so I can check if the file at the webserver newer than yours.

    What's the advantage of check the plugin.yml? Also it took longer to open each jar and check for a Download-Link. With my method I must only check a Map with all Download-Links, what more faster.

    P.S. I can't find your Download-Link

    Added. Thank you.

    i have a missspelling: CButD says CraftBukkit is up to date, when its outdated but the new jar is in the updates folder. i think it should be, there is an update for CB its in your updates folder, or something like that

  9. Yes, if the Service not available this Exception thrown, but I catch it and there's no need to worry about that. If this a Problem for you, I can catch the Exception, without sending a message.

    Yes, I can add this if you need, I thought it's no problem, if someone don't like to use the new build.

    A bad server mod deleted my world :mad: i want a stable build and i doesnt download one... Can somebody tell how the properties have to work to just download the latest stable release build... NO DEV BUILD!
  12. I don't know what you want if you want the recommendBuild open and set recommendedBuild=true, else if you want the latestStableBuild set recommendedBuild=false

    You know that the fileSystem changed with Minecraft 1.3 your normal world shout converted automaticly but the other worlds, if you use the Multiworld-Feature doesn't convert automaticly, look at the Multiverse-Plugin-Page:
  13. Offline


    It converted fine but i heard that the latest stable build is 440 but it downloaded something about 470 and the world is gone :(
  14. Set recommendedBuild=true, this download only the recommendedBuilds. I'm sry for your issues, I hope you have a backup. I will use the latest build (478) and check if my world also destroyed.
  15. Offline


    Because this was so: I downloaded a version that supports 1.3. I joined and fell out of the map an died.... Now i made build 470 and i started on a new world...
    And thanks for update ^^

    ....and i had no backup :((((((((((
  16. I tested the new Build (478) some plugins didn't work anymore but my world is fine. Sry for your problems, I hope it isn't very aggravating for you. Can it be a problem from one of your other plugins?

    Edit: If you have your old world, try to delete your (Player-Name).dat under world/players, then you shout resporn at the Sporn-Point. Please save it before, because after that your Inventory is blank.

    thank u for this great plugin:)
  21. Added. Thank you.
    They not hardcoded, i add them to a who downloaded at each Server-Startup. This is to make sure that all ok, what if you change your source, then repository.yml goes to the old one, the users must first download your new version before he can use the autoupdater again, with my Method it download first the new with the new link and than make a Update-Check. Also I have at the moment big Problems with github which redirected in a unsupported method, so I must rewrite every link. Or what if the plugin-Author use a nonstatic link, because he didn't notice what he have to do.

    If I can resolve the github-Problem, I think about to support two methods for the Plugin-Update-Check.

    But in my first Version I looked for a simple and fast way to add new Plugins.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think this might not be working correctly; it updated me to 450 and then wasn't updating any further (I learned that CB was up to like 475 or something) and so I tried wiping the bukkit_update directory and it redownloaded CB 440, any reason for it going backwards?

  27. btw did you found out why it stops at the failed build of craftbukkit ? mine is still on 458 and if I download the newest stabel manual your script is downgrading :S

  29. You are sure? I test it and it works fine, can you send me a Screenshot from your build_update-Folder?
