[Tool] Plugin Manager

  • Hi everyone !

    I'm here to show you my new tool : the C2 Plugin Manager !

    I was lacking a big feature in Construct : a place where all plugins will be centralized.

    So I decided to make a tool for that, with a nice and user-friendly UI.

    Here are the current possibilities :

    For the user :

    • Search through a set of plugins
    • Install a plugin with just one click : the tool download the plugin, extract it and install it directly to your folder !
    • No more search in the forums, there is a clear list of plugins, with a nice description
    • Manage your local copy of the folder. Easily uninstall them if you dont't need them*
    • You plugins update themself and alert you with notifications when there are changes !*

    For the devs :

    • No more hosting, i do it for you !
    • Easy upload : Pack your plugin into a zip and drop it into the interface, all the data are prefilled.
    • Easy update system*
    • Support examples and screenshots*

    And much more to come !

    ->Here's the public Trello list

    There is also a very nice feature for me : Custom url handling

    Install the tool. Close it. Click here. BAM!

    * Some features are not done yet

    Please people, this tool cannot live without you.

    If you enjoy the app, please help me correst bugs ASAP.

    Developpers, please contribute to this project or give me the authorisations to put your plugin online (I don't do it without your autorisation)

    Thank you very much for reading me. Hope you'll enjoy this tool.

    If you encounter any bug, feel free to ask here, by PM or in the discord channel.

    Don't forget to ask me for new features ! This app is for you.

    If you encounter any weird behaviour, try running as administrator before asking for bug. Thanks

    R12 - CHANGELOG

  • I know Rex has his own plugin manager, but having all of them in one place sounds really great. Especially if people could leave reviews for each plugin. Third party plugins often get deprecated after some time.

    I like the idea +1

  • Yeah, great Idea Armaldio, it would be great it people could partake in helping with each plugin's manual and/or description. I love the tool Rex produced for his plugins, but one thing it lacks for sure are paragraphs of descriptions for his actions/conditions etc. In that case localization would be great for other languages. Good job, Keep up!

  • Thanks for your ideas, there is a trello here where you can see the advancement <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">

  • great idea, and it indeed works fine as admin, and I know you are planning more things out to make it so admin is not an obligation, so good job.

    I had made a tool to generate ACE table of plugins and parameters of effects in user's local c2 folder.

    c2docgen_t181543

    And here is ACE table of my plugins

    https://rexrainbow.github.io/C2RexDoc/c ... index.html

    Feel free to grab the source code to yours tool projects.

  • Does this plugins manager tool support effects too?

    Btw, the plugin uploading interface should be one clicking, just like downloading part. I updated my plugins frequency, by my uploading tool.

  • armaldio

    Thank you very much, will see how is usefull for me ;

  • rexrainbow Thanks for your tool ! I've already started my own parser but I should have a look at yours. Showing the ACE table inside the description is definetely a good idea ^^.

    It support currently only Plugins. It should work with behaviours too. Effects will come after

    Will you upload your plugins to the tool ?

    @Gigatron I hope so !

  • Try Construct 3

  • There are some issues of uploading plugins by author.

    1. who can upload these plugins if author had left?

    2. how to verify that the user of uploading is the author? For example, what if I upload commercial plugins than all other users can download them for free, it is illegal absolutely.

    That why I did not support uploading by other users, only uploading my plugins. I am lazy to deal with legal issues.

  • rexrainbow You're right, this is a question i'm asking too.

    If a dev see his plugin upload by another member he can still claim his ownership.

    You can do the same currently. Wihtout my tool, you can still share the source code of a paid plugin for free if you bought it. Nothing new.

  • I thought users bought the right of using that paid plugins in their projects, not the right to disturbte them.

    Space provider should remove these illegal content, like YouTube does.

  • Yes, I don't want illegal content in my tool. i'll of course remove them. This is why I hope people will let me know when something is wrong.

    I just want to say that, my tool or not, sharing illegal content is possible.

    My goal is not to provide a space of exchange for illegal plugins ^^'

  • New Update !
