This component makes it so any time you visit the Component page of your Administrator portal you will see any updates available to components indicated by the component row being blue. Expanding the row will show what version is available as an update with a link to the component page for you to click to grab the download for the new version.
Here is a link to a visual of what the interface looks like in the Components page when there are components with an update available.
Feedback is welcome but something I cant make happen at this point is to make them auto update as this would direct traffic away from the community and bypass it.
Added de translation provided by Z Man
I'd strongly recommend to replace the former version because this one (5.1) is listing important dependencies like:
I just downloaded from Github - and its only version 1.0. Oddly though, I installed it on the demo site and it seemed to work... it highlighted itself telling me there was an update to version 1.1 :)
If its just to highlight new version availability and provide the link - that seems to work ok on my OSSN 5.6 demo site with GreenByGreen theme.
Can we please have an updated version for this? I'd really like to install it. Thanks!
definelty a great tool to have at hand , keeping things updated isnt always easy on many web based platforms, this rocks, i just updated all he ones i needed to. thank you!
Thank you Z Man,
I have added that translation you provided, thanks!
A real enhancement, Bryce!
Aside from a big thank you, let me just offer my translation here:
$en = array( 'component:update:update_version' => 'Update Version', 'component:update:update_url' => 'Update URL', 'component:update:update_available' => 'Update verfügbar', 'component:update:update_check:error' => 'Beim Zugriff auf verfügbare Updates ist folgender Fehler aufgetreten:', ); ossn_register_languages('de', $en);
I'm completely happy the way it works and would keep away from any auto-update mechanism. People might apply their own changes to components that would get lost without extra checking - and that means: computing and comparing component checksums and such.
