switch from plugin store to GitHub

Jay, Matt,

is it possible to switch from depositing the plugins on the indigo store to pointing to the GitHub site for an existing plugin on the indigo store? ... or do we need to "reset" a plugin and start from scratch creating a new plugin on the store?

I can switch it I think, just point me to the github repo and the plugin that you want to switch.

Jay,

could you "point" plugin store https://www.indigodomo.com/pluginstore/75/ "utilities" to https://github.com/kw123/indigoUtilities ?

thanks

Karl

Re: switch from plugin store to GitHub

Before I do that, seems like you'll want to remove the .zip file from the repo and add it to the release, right?

Re: switch from plugin store to GitHub

I know you probably have explained that before..

publish on GitHub: no zip

publish directly on indigo store upload zip file

Q: when publishing on GitHub, .. who does the zip file? or not needed?

Karl

removed the zip file. version stayed the same

It's not strictly required since the zipped up repo that's automatically created when you create a release contains the plugin. However, when the user clicks the download link we deliver this and they get an oddly named folder which they then need to dig into to find the plugin. It's a much better experience if you attach the zipped up plugin yourself when you create the release. If that exists, then that's what we'll deliver when the user clicks on the download link, and they get a nice single plugin file in their Downloads directory that they can just double-click to install. So it's really about user experience.

Let me know when you're ready and I'll make the switch.

Re: switch from plugin store to GitHub

sorry, still confused

1. GitHub: no zip file

2. then add the zip file to the plugin store for each release ?

had done it with zip and plugin file in one I setup myself getting in downloads:
...Downloads/kw123-home-away-plugin-for-indigo-06ec275/
homeAway.indigoPlugin
homeAway.indigoPlugin.zip
README.md

so when I remove the zip file i just get
homeAway.indigoPlugin
README.md
in the download?

No - add the zip file when you create a release on GitHub. Might want to read through the whole Github setup for plugins wiki article as a refresher...

Re: switch from plugin store to GitHub

I a am somewhat slow. I hope, I got it right this time -> indigoUtilities
thought I had to put the release into the desktop GitHub directory.. now loaded it into the web page as per guideline ... I hate to read docs (and write them)

Re: switch from plugin store to GitHub

Looks good. I've updated it in the plugin store. The only thing you have to do now when you create a new release on GitHub is edit it then save it (there's a checkbox at the bottom that's checked by default that will add new releases it finds on Github).

ready to move it to GitHub .

Thanks
