Any solution of installing many 3rd party plugins?

  • Ashley

    I had used "developer mode" to load plugins from local https server automatically, it worked nice. Is it possible to improve this feature for normal users, to load plugins automatically?

    • For plugin developers, plugins files could be uploaded to github, which is a https server.
    • For normal users,

    a. updating plugins automatically.

    b. list of plugin url in JSON could be saved/loaded/shared to get these plugins quickly.

  • I don't think a feature that requires you to set up and configure a HTTP server is at all suitable for a general non-technical audience.

  • Try Construct 3

    Ability to install multiple addons at once

    [quote:tp2c81gw]When doing a new C3 install on a new device or refresh of web browser cache on current PC, it will allow the user to quickly install all the necessary addons quickly. For example, allow multiple *.c3addons files to be selected at once in the file picker for the addon manager and load addons all w/o confirmation dialog box for each addon (instead just a single confirmation with all of the addons listed, 1 per line.) Alternately, have the ability to save the file locally that has all addons listed and have a method to use the file to load all of the addons.

    HTTPS server is provided by plugin developers not normal c3 users. For example, I could upload my plugins on github, which is a HTTPS server, too.

    Normal user could get a plugin from a link of addon.json like this.

    Well... I tried to get addon.json from my github site, but it did not work.

  • All external connections are blocked for security reasons, and we'd like to keep it that way. So I think we need to come up with another way.

  • What's wrong with just zipping a bunch of plugs together?

    Other than the obvious mistakes like users sticking behaviors and plugs together.

    Nice! A zip file which has many *.c3addon.

  • Current solution with multi-file picker is working for me. I have a local addons directory which I added to my bitbucket source control along with the separate C3 project source files (using desktop C3 version.)

    When I want bring up a new desktop C3 instance on another PC, I clone the bitbucket depot, load C3, point the file picker at the dir, hit ctrl-A and add them all. Thanks Ashley
