As you know we have to replace the old plugin files by the new one in the plugins folder every time we change the plugin source.This process can be boring if you have a lots of users in different servers that use that plugin because you have to do a copy/paste action for each user separately.I know i can write a simple plugin for doing this action automatically by using a share path between all users but i want to know if its possible to use vp update service for updating plugins too.
Thanks in advance
Sorry, it is not supported now.
Now, you have some VP clients, and some of them may installed some of your plugin(s).
I think we can solve your problem by following:
- You prepare your shared folder, which is a folder, contains your plugins.
After you updated your plugin, place your updated plugins into the shared folder.
- In your clients’ VP installation dir, create a file to specify the location of your shared folder,
and make sure, your clients can access the shared folder.
- Then, on your clients’ VP Update, we may check what plugin(s) is installed in this VP client, and is it supported in your shared folder. If yes, VP Update will download the plugin(s) from shared folder and update yours clients’ plugins.
Is it ok? if yes, we will support it in the future.
Hi @peter.wong and thanks you for the reply
Yeah, your solution is good but it would be much better if we use the same vp server path for saving plugins files. The best place to create a shared folder between vp clients would be the same vp server because that’s how we’re sure every vp user will have access to the plugins folder.
