update-notifier - Update notifications for your CLI app

  •        6

Inform users of your package of updates in a non-intrusive way.Whenever you initiate the update notifier and it's not within the interval threshold, it will asynchronously check with npm in the background for available updates, then persist the result. The next time the notifier is initiated, the result will be loaded into the .update property. This prevents any impact on your package startup performance. The update check is done in a unref'ed child process. This means that if you call process.exit, the check will still be performed in its own process.

After the server receives the POST request, it will fetch the package.json file under yourGithubUrl/org/repoName, update data/orgs.json and data/{org}/{repoName}.json files. If there is a newer version, it will try to download the new component through npm (scripts/install-module.sh) after a waiting period, babel transpile, and webpack the demo module (scripts/post-install-module.sh). To make the server update immediately or force an update, add a url parameter to the POST request, /api/update/{org}/{repoName}?updateNow=1.

HockeyKit - A software update kit for iOS and Android

  •    Objective-C

Hockey is a iOS Ad-Hoc updater framework. It can be used for all apps that target the Apple AppStore and improves the beta testing process dramatically. All beta testers. It consists of two components, a server and a client framework. The server component is required for all scenarios. But it also can work standalone without the client library. It provides a web interface which beta testers can use to install the latest AdHoc provisioning profile and also the latest beta version via Safari right from the device. One server installation is able to handle multiple applications via different bundle identifiers (I highly suggest using different bundle identifiers for Debug, AdHoc Beta and AppStore release builds !!!). By default the client library will check for updates on your server whenever the app is started or will wake up. The user can adjust this in the settings dialog to alternatively only check once a day or manually.This framework was created after reading the blog post at http://jeffreysambells.com/posts/2010/06/22/ios-wireless-app-distribution/ where Jeffrey Sambells wrote about the mechanisms required and being available for us to use.
