A simple update checker for Sponge Plugins for the Ore repository.

Aura Update Checker

This plugin is a simple update checker for all plugins on here on Ore.
It’s currently in pretty early beta stage, so be aware that there may be bugs and that not all features are implemented.

Currently it checks all your plugins after the server started and every 30 minutes if there’s a new version available. Then it shows you in the console.

Planned features

  • Add a command to automatically download the new version
  • Add the possibility to see the changelog
  • Add the possibility to download any version
