Install a plugin that connect to your website to check version number via internal wordpress cron and download the latest version. Will help reduce hacks/worms as old plugins are a prime target. Might have adapt a existing GPL update plugin.January 9, 2016 at 2:30 pm #16600Sub ZeroParticipant
https://wpremote.com/app/ exists for that purpose, but I guess it will not auto update the GPL plugins as of right now. :/January 9, 2016 at 6:13 pm #16601Tim LesterParticipant
Thank you. WPMU Dev has a auto update function we could maybe use or strip down https://github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso so just update plugin functions. I don’t know php/js so not much use.
http://www.wpallimport.com/2015/03/didnt-upgrade-4-1-1-yet-might-get-hacked/ is a example of what happens :)November 16, 2016 at 3:59 pm #18142X XParticipant
+1 to Automatic Updates via a GPLDL plugin.
This would make GPLDL 100x more valuable than the others repositories. Not that it isn’t already way cooler.December 10, 2016 at 8:23 am #18218Punit MakwanaParticipant
+1 for for a plugin that Autoupdates plugin from GPLDL repository. One should also be able to install new plugins, themes in one clickDecember 25, 2016 at 10:31 am #18259January 31, 2017 at 7:36 am #18464Joe PaytonParticipant
If GPLDL would introduce an API of some sort so we could download with curl or wget then writing an update plugin would be easy. Or even better, an internal repository. I would be very interested in working with this is GPLDL would like to talk some more.September 8, 2017 at 4:15 pm #19238David VenterParticipant
Auto updates? GPLKit and various other GPL sites are already doing this. Would be great to see an Auto Update plugin for GPLDL. Please make it happen!September 21, 2017 at 6:54 am #19311JSParticipant
Came here to to suggest a similar idea – but in terms of technical I would suggest a very simple idea.
We could simply use WP CLI
And maintain a list of installed plugins URLs from GPLDL – and the run a simple shell script
yet unsure how to handle the required authentification (maybe someone will get some ideas by reading the doc of s2membership – maybe i will – when I coin the time for it somewhere)
have a great day everybody!September 22, 2017 at 10:04 am #19318JSParticipant
Ok, correcting my previous post –
While working on an other project, I am migrating the plugin management to composer – which then allow to manage both regular update and update from custom repo.October 3, 2017 at 2:38 pm #19376
Thanks for sharing all insights and recommendations. We will need some test users soon… :-)October 25, 2017 at 11:09 am #19432David VenterParticipant
Hi, any further update on this? I’d like to volunteer as a test user :-)October 31, 2017 at 12:16 pm #19440Michael RimbachParticipant

It looks like it’s not going to happen…January 25, 2020 at 11:03 am #22001
If anyone is interested in doing some research or pointing to a project that utilizes the WooCommerce API Manager Extension’s API or any other solution that allows building a stand-alone plugin which acts as a service plugin for WooCommerce, this would be very helpful to drive our development forward.

I tried to reply but am not sure if it went through, maybe because I’ve not posted much and included a url? May want to look at GPL kit, they have a plugin like this.May 15, 2020 at 7:26 am #22309Mariano MartinezParticipant
Hi, any tip or help to create a script (python or bash scripting) to download and install plugin from gpldl with credentials (gpldl account) ?June 3, 2020 at 3:40 am #22378Amber AdamsParticipant
Awesome idea. This would be extremely useful for the Plugins downloaded from GPLDL. Perhaps this could even be a new Feature for Donators.June 13, 2020 at 2:13 am #22400Clap TrappParticipant
+ 1 for this and following ;-)
GPL Kit offer this and so too does Nobuna, but both are restrictive.August 18, 2020 at 4:52 pm #22578Kevin LeeParticipant
Hopefully someone from GPLDL is still working on this. Highly needed and much added value.August 18, 2020 at 7:25 pm #22581Clap TrappParticipant

I believe another angle would be to just select in your account which plugins you are using and “following” and to at least get a system notification from gpldl when an update has been posted with a download link.
This at least should be a pretty easy solution to implement and an intermediate step to getting auto-updates…November 27, 2020 at 12:00 pm #22962Michael RatcliffeParticipant
An easy +1 for me.January 17, 2021 at 1:27 pm #23038
Can anyone who is willing to contribute to an updater plugin with the necessary skills to code please answer here?
