Browsing through this forum, I sometimes see posts where users are daunted by the OH updating process; and asking if there is a UI interface to do it. So I am thinking of developing an addon that would do this. I wonder if anyone has thoughts about it?
Such an addon would shell out of the OH service, and start a script to shut down the OH service, download and install the new modules, and then restart OH. The core of the script could be the one that already exists in OpenHabian on *ix machines, but obviously Windows machines would need a different script.
I think the process would not be so different than most modern applications that can run a bootstrap self update process. But there may be issues concerning rights and authentication etc. (That’s one reason why I am thinking of making this an addon rather than part of the core; so users can decide whether or not they want this feature installed on their systems).
