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.
https://wpremote.com/app/ exists for that purpose, but I guess it will not auto update the GPL plugins as of right now. :/
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 :)
+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.
+1 for for a plugin that Autoupdates plugin from GPLDL repository. One should also be able to install new plugins, themes in one click
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.
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!
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!
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.
Thanks for sharing all insights and recommendations. We will need some test users soon… :-)
Hi, any further update on this? I’d like to volunteer as a test user :-)
@7h3h Any update will be highly appreciated.
Any update 7h3h?
