Plugin auto update

  1. Hi there!

    Got a little issue with my plugin. I developped SuperSeeds plugin. For that I submitted my plugin, openend a repository directly on dev.bukkit, using subversion. I've updated it now up to version 1.6.0 and suddently I wondered if the auto update works. Downgraded my plugin to 1.5.0 and started a plugin update check. No new update downloaded. Mmmh, checked again, and yes, I tagged my repo, first from Eclipse, then thought to do it from dev.bukkit.

    Tagged 1.6.0 to "1.6.0_release" as the auto packager seems to search for numbers etc etc as seen on

    1.6.0_release was created in my tags.

    Then I waited as said up to 30 minutes, checked for updates again, still nothing. Thought ok, might take longer... But now it's been over a day and still nothing.

    So here I am, wondering what I'm doing wrong, cause that's surely the cause...

    For info, I'm using 1.4.7-R1.0 with Pail interface. Other plugins do update when a new version is out, but not mine, so there's surely something I'm doing wrong...

    Thank you for your answers

    This sounds like a plugin development thread? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the staff has been alerted for the move to "Plugin Development".

    It's still in the Bukkitdev info/feedback-section, if you wanted to move it to plugin development.

    Psychokiller1888 Are you talking about /files/ or /repository/? Are you talking about uploaded jar files or pushing uncompiled files to the repo?

    As far as I know (but Curse staff may correct me) the packager system is not for Bukkit addons. Its primary purpose is World of Warcraft addons.

    This is because all the packager needs to do there is bundle together the raw lua files and whatnot and can then publish that bundle directly as an available package.
    The packager system is turned off for BukkitDev and should therefore not function (although some settings may still be configurable).

    Sorry for the confusion!
  7. Oki, so here the next question then, where are the auto updates for plugins auto downloaded from? What triggers the fact that my plugin went to 1.6.0 and people get it auto downloaded at plugin update check and get a message "plugin blablabla has been updated please copy blablabla"

    There is no auto update build into CraftBukkit. You should seek out the tool you use to update your plugins and look there for answers.

    They probably have a server sitting somewhere with the latest version keyed in, and the plugin is checking itself against that.
