Auto-pull from Curse permission thread
Please note
  • we strongly encourage everyone to consider using our API, or p3lim's packager before considering this option;
  • this does not allow for auto-posting of your changelog. If you want your change log updated you would have to do that manually. This simply downloads the new version file from Curse and uploads it to here; and
  • we only run the script to do this every six (6) hours, so it may take that long for the updated file to show up here. Using either of the other options will populate it here as soon as you run it.

That said, if you still want us to auto-pull from Curse you will need to:
  • If you don't already have the addon in question on WoWInterface - upload your addon to here, put in your description, screenshots, etc. If you already have the addon hosted here, skip to the next step.
  • Once you've uploaded it, give me a link to it here and on Curse, please.
  • Then I tick a couple boxes and it should grab the most recent from Curse, and from then on will auto-magically pull from Curse any time you update your addon there.
  • In addition you will need to provide written confirmation that we are pulling from Curse at your behest, via posting in this thread.

I have no problems with WoWI auto-pulling my addon. That way I don't have to switch from the Curse repo and update in two places at once.

I would like WoWI to pull both of my addons from Curse to WoWI automatically. Thanks for adding this service! I'm excited about not having to manually move things over :).

This thread is over a year old, but hopefully you're still doing this.

I hereby authorize WoWI to automatically pull the latest version of my addon, Decliner, from Curse.

I've added it to the list, but you really should consider one of the other two options we've listed here. It'll give you better control.

I have looked at the other two options. Git, your API, Curse's pkmeta, the packager, it's all a bit out of my scope. I like to stay simple and update my addon manually on Curse, so for me, it's just editing Lua and uploading. This auto-pull is perfect so that I don't forget I'm hosting here as well, since all my addon needs here is just the new files.

I appreciate the work that has gone into the other methods and thank you for checking me into your auto-pull.

Good enough. :) You're welcome. :)

Once again, I appreciate this auto pull for authors like me that manually upload.

Sorry it took so long. In the future please send Cairenn or I a private message here and we'll get to it sooner. :)

Awesome, thank you very much.

Sorry this feature is currently not working. Will continue to try and fix it though.

Stea 10-16-20 07:27 AM

Ah OK, thanks for the response. Was hoping it was still going since it's the least amount of things I have to do to distribute. Currently I tag in GitHub and that triggers the update to curse, but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent for wow interface. I found the instructions for creating a workflow, but from my understanding that means I need to do stuff locally, which is not _my_ workflow. Any suggestions here?

Nowadays you would just use the BigWigs packager with GitHub Actions
