[MBS] Dropbox for plugin distribution?
Date: 22.04.12 22:21 (Sun, 22 Apr 2012 23:21:11 +0200)
From: Christian Schmitz
Hi,

I use dropbox from time to time to sync stuff from me to clients.

How about dropping new plugins into a shared folder there, so people subscribed would get the files with notification?

What do you think? Is that a benefit?

Greetings
Christian

Thanks! I'm going to make an account and will send you the address. DropBox sounds like SugarSync to me (which I already installed). Let's discover their differences…

It's a nice convenience to get plugins right on your disk without going to website.

I hope it works nice this way.

Still I hope they add a way for me to set folder to read only for everyone else.

Can't you just set up a link to a particular folder in your
Dropbox and make that link "public" so others can access its contents?

That way its contents are read-only, yet we could all access it
as needed, and it would be trivial for you to update it.

I'm not sure I see that much of an advantage over a regular
website URL, however, except that this might be easier for
pre-release material that gets updated often.

Yes. I like the idea of your dropping them in your dropbox from Germany, and me waking up in California to find the plug-ins already on my machine, not having to go and download them from your web site…

The benefit here is that you can find the plugin files in your dropbox typically before I even start my own upload as dropbox can upload while I build archives.

We'll see.

I like this idea, too. Please subscribe me if/when you do it, though you'll have to use the email address associated with dropbox - <email address removed>.

I was just investigating this for a client project, and as far as I could find out, there is no way to set permissions on a shared folder or its contents.

Thanks for this idea!

I know. So I have to kick everyone who makes changes there. Dropbox has a log for that.

Please don't simply use that folder as your plugins folder. Just copy files out of there if needed.

I'll think we keep it for a month and see how it works.

I love the idea that I can use this for updates between prerelease's. I just put newer plugins there when someone needs a fix.

Christian

Hi Christian!

It sounds like a nice Idea, but don't forget that everyone who is
invited to the shared folder has write rights and there is no way to set
a users permissions to read only.
So in the worst case, someone could sneak harming plugins into
everyone's plugin folder.

Another (cheap) solution for this would be a SVN Repo. It wouldnt be a
perfect solution, but every user may easily update to the latest plugins
by just doing an update.
And since SVN supports setting access rights, you wouldnt have the same
problem as with dropbox.

No. Don't really use bookmarks much because they don't scale well. Your navigation is still a mess.

Why not save a link to http://www.macsw.de/plugin/Prerelease/ in your bookmarks?

I would prefer a link to the current pre-release when you post the release to your blog.

The navigation of your website is clear as mud and I occasionally have to hunt the page for the downloads.

Would give it a try. Although it might be difficult for those of us on
low speed connections.

La magistratura può fare solo accertamenti di carattere giudiziale. Le istituzioni hanno il dovere di estromettere gli uomini politici vicini alla mafia, per essere oneste e apparire tali"
