Looking to share my plugin...

Post your work in progress addons and get feedback

Post » Fri Nov 28, 2014 2:26 pm

However, there will be updates to my plugin over time... is there some sort of opensource application out there that anyone knows of, that I can manipulate (without having to re-invent the wheel), and package with my plugin so that people can just open the application and sync to get the latest version? Just a tiny application is all that's required.

Second:

Is there a way I can package my plugin, so that no one else can copy it? I can always minify it... but is that my only option?

Thanks.

Yeah, I know about c2addon... however, once you 'install' this addon, it essentially puts the javascript files of your plugin into the users folder... and it's very easy to rip into these and get all your hard work, etc etc. I'd rather have it so they can't do this.

Minifying or obfuscating it is your only options.

You can't really protect yourself from pirates, if people have the plugin files they can use them, there's no way to work around that fact.

you don't understand him, he don't want to protect it or whatever , he asked for sharing software only for his plugin, whenever you run that application , it tell you if there a new version of the plugin and the option to download it , or maybe just just automatically download the plugin files in a specific folder , so you always have the recent version.

Are you saying you have something like this?

If so, I'd be interested in using it. :)

Thanks!
