And finally, Add-on Updater 20.06 #addonrelease


 

Hi all,

 

Add-on Updater 20.06 is now available. As an add-on that has gone through one of the most changes as a result of Flake8, along with not breaking update facility for other add-ons, this add-on became the last one to get 20.06. As always, Add-on Updater 20.06 is available through community add-ons website, or ironically enough, through Add-on Updater itself.

 

And with that, I’m taking a break from NVDA add-ons world for a while. The next releases will be done in July.

Cheers,

Joseph

Is there a way this can be somewhat automated so you don't have to add every new add on that gets posted to the community website?


 

Hi,

Using the current infrastructure, the best way is letting NVDA query a table of add-on identifiers and versions, which must be updated whenever new add-ons are registered and updates are released (still a manual intervention). Note that this fails for add-ons that receive updates from websites other than GitHub and ones that come with their own update mechanism. All this will change once add-ons store idea becomes reality, which will also make Add-on Updater and update mechanisms in other add-ons obsolete.

Cheers,

Joseph
