need an app to auto run updates.
probably should use ftp so it can check dates on files.
needs to be cross platform.
standalone app probably preferred.
Could this turn into a CI/CD situation: every time a significant branch is merged into main it’s pushed out as an update.
Using ftplib and a created guest account I have logging in to ftp and getting file lists working using ftplib.
I can’t seem to get symlinks working, so it looks like we will be storing the files in the guest user’s ftp directory.
Next is actually doing things with files.
I think there are going to be a lot of issues with too many/hung connections using ftp, but we will see.
I got everything working, with a single root directory. Going to put this on hold for a while until I can come up with a good plan for traversing directories recursively or find a better solution.
messed with a gkinter thing. I should be able to create a cross platform gui app executable. At the moment the app checks the server for the current version and compares to the local version file. prints if server version is newer.
No due date set.
This issue currently doesn't have any dependencies.
Deleting a branch is permanent. It CANNOT be undone. Continue?
