Strict Versioning

Not normally needed, but if you're running a Minecraft server that is outdated, then strict versioning will only download compatible versions of plugins.
This feature is not needed for servers running up-to-date with Minecraft and is turned off by default. To turn it on, look in the config.

First Run

Line First Run Line

On the first run of the plugin it will automatically search all plugins installed and index/register them with the updater. (Happens when a new plugin is installed also). Then it will take the newly registered plugin(s) and attempt to re-download them all off dev.bukkit.org - This should only happen the first time it meets a new plugin; from then on the downloads will only be for new versions of plugins. However if the task is unsuccessful for a certain plugin (Bukkit page is different to plugin name) then it will un-register it and you'll have to register it manually with /upu register.
To plugin developers: It is quite likely that you don't want the updater to re-download your plugin for every new version-Your version is newer! If this is the case simply do /upu unregister <PluginName> and the updater will no longer attempt to update it.
Force update a plugin: If you wish to force update a plugin simply do /upu update <Plugin> and if you're impatient follow it with /upu check. Do not however type /reload until it is updated because then it will cancel the update. If you wish to force update all your plugins (corrupted, etc...) then simply look in the plugins/UltimatePluginUpdater folder and delete the cfgPlugins.data file - This will make the plugin think it is doing the 'first-run' again and it will re-register all installed plugins.

Configuration

Line Configuration Line

There isn't a lot to configure: Just the colour scheme and which plugins are registered. The colour scheme can be changed in plugins/UltimatePluginUpdater/config.yml and the rest can be done with the commands above.

    First time I ran this plugin it worked well and succesfully updated my plugins but after I restarted my server to reload all those plugins, I get this message to the console;

    • 4:05:19 AM UltimatePluginUpdater: Starting plugin updater...
    • 4:05:19 AM UltimatePluginUpdater: Plugin updater started!
    • 4:05:33 AM CONSOLE: [INFO] Updater terminated!

    Happens everytime I restart my server or use check or update commands.

    Hello, I have a few feature requests: The first is what @hunted2 stated - register plugins in console. He stated you can use quotation marks to deal with plugins with spaces.

    The second is to change the amount of time the plugin checks for updates. I only have about 10 plugins on my server, and I don't need it to check every 30 minutes, nor do I need to see it all over my console.

    Otherwise, thanks for the simple plugin!

    This account is so old that I don't even use that username anymore.
    If you want you can refer to me as "robomwm"

    Yes, just change the settings in the config.

    Is there a way to just run an update check to see what plugins are outdated without actually downloading them? I prefer to update my plugins one by one to avoid breaking stuff.

    @hunted2: Go

    I know I can, but then it would break it for every plugin who's name is more than one word, or who's filename is more than one word

    @storm345: Go

    You can take multiple parameters into a command. Just take in "upu register combattag combattag.jar combat-tag"

    generic:

    upu register <name> <jar name> <slug>

    @hunted2: Go

    Not possible because the multiple stage input is necessary for the command to work (multiple word args needed) and the console cannot 'chat' only execute commands; so it doesnt work.
