Re: Add-on Updater notice: introducing Project Meteor to refactor add-on download and installation steps


Ravindran V.S.
 

Agree on this.

Add-ons installed from beside the official pages should also have a feature to be updated through the Add-on updater.

 Thanks,

Ravi.

Well I'd like a feature where you can choose to update addons from either the nvda addon database or thee author spaciffic addons.

Or find a way for something to automatically pole updated releases pages for authors periodically to get updates.

Some updates like tony's addons have not got latest updates to 1.14 and while you can request them manually added to the addon files database surely we need more sources.

Now I realise the potential for misuse but there are somethings that are not even in the main database.

Some others have made other sources and tools but there really should be other ways to select other databases and other mirrors and users.

I mean they do it in linux several sources at once.

 

Not sure how security would work though.

Hi all,

A significant change is now being tested in Project Meteor in the form of a new try build: https://github.com/josephsl/addonUpdater/releases/download/22.07/addonUpdater-tryProjectMeteor20220715.nvda-addon

The biggest change (to be included in upcoming Add-on Updater stable release) is that disabled add-ons will not be updated by default. Depending on background add-on updates setting:

  • Background updates on: NVDA will just ignore disabled add-ons altogether.
  • Background updates off: disabled add-ons will be unchecked in add-on updates dialog (the one you get after checking for add-on updates). If you somehow check disabled add-ons and select "update add-ons," NVDA will ask if you wish to update disabled add-ons as updating them will enable them after restarting NVDA. If you say "no", NVDA will return you to ad-on updates dialog where you can uncheck disabled add-ons.

Cheers,

Joseph
