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Not normally needed, but if you're running a Minecraft server that is outdated, then strict versioning will only download compatible versions of plugins.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.


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.

    @Victorrms: Go

    It works with spigot 1.8 for updating bukkit plugins only sorry. I would love to add support for spigot plugins, but sadly they don't have a uniform download location or any kind of api and thus it isn't possible :(

    Hi it works with spigot 1.8, and with spigot plugins?

    just wondering, this might not be possible, but does this plugin update itself?

    You may dislike corn or corn dogs, but thing again, think harder, don't you like candy corn?

    @storm345: Go

    This was precisely my question.

    Thanks for clarifying that this option is indeed not configurable [yet]...

    @lipe124: Go

    Indeed, I agree. I made this plugin quite a while ago now, will maybe add this if I have some free time! :)

    Please allow us to configure the update delay or time it checks, 30 minutes is way to often.

    Once a day is more than enough for update checks.

    Maybe in the future

    can you add plugman support so instead of having to reload the entire server (Like detection if the plugin is avalible then use "/plugman reload <plugin>" instead of "/reload"
