    Plugin category: Admin Tools

    Suggested name: PluginInstall

    What I want: I'd like a plugin to install a plugin with a command, so you can just paste a link into the command and will install the plugin! This would be a good Admin Tool so any staff member can install plugins from in-game!

    Ideas for commands: /plugininstall [link] or alias /pi [link]

    Ideas for permissions: plugininstall.install (permission to add plugin!)

    When I'd like it by: ASAP!

    Unfortunately, I don't use my Skype so we cant talk over it - Sorry =/

    Update #1: Thank you everyone for helping! We hope to see this plugin soon as CoderCloud is developing it - Thanks!

    Very possible. You can download the file and let Bukkit load it.

    timtower Hey, looks like i got a little Problem:

    When i load the filepage in firefox i get this tablecell (
    <td class="col-filename">
        <a href="">
    But when i load the site in java the link to the file is missing:

    <td class="col-filename">
    Do you know any way to get a direct fileLink of a plugin in java?

    CoderCloud Let the user pick the URL direct so that dropbox links will also work. So for that plugin it would be this:
    Direct download link is the best method

    no problem mate. it's a cool idea! and I hope it works.

    While I like the idea but, I (just like anyone else) use FTP to upload new plugins to my server, but there is another way, if you are using McMyAdmin Control panel you can just search for a plugin and install it right from there into your server.

    But now I was wondering, how many times a day would you install new plugins? very often? every hour?
    Also would you test the plugin in local server and set up the config files before loading it to your main server?

    Well, while your idea is very cool and Awesome, but I don't upload new plugins every day or every hour in my server.
    so it's not hesitate to do a research for a new plugin that I'm are looking for, find the right version and test it first in local server and finally load it to the server and do couple restarts to fix all bugs and issues and then we are good to go... :D

    Wow troycooper5 .. you're excited arn't you?
    CoderCloud Personally I would put in a check to make sure the links are either from or, to limit the chance of loading malicious code.

    In my opinion you have the same issues when download and putting it in your server by hand.
  28. Np :D I don't have a lot of subs tho but i think it will still count :D! is there things you would like me to speak about specifically?

    Agree, and giving access to a plugin to download anything on the server could be dangerous and you are letting everyone (admins) to install anything they want on your server. basically killing your server by your own plugins.

    CoderCloud you should probably also put a cool down timer so people won't download plugins over and over or download thousands of plugins at once.
  30. I don't know much about coding and malicious code but couldn't someone that does make some malicious code and upload it to bukkit or cures and go on server with this plugin and say its a plugin that does what the server specifically needs at that time?
