[Discussion] Update plugins from GitHub release page

Currently calibre needs to download plugins from calibre server(https://code.calibre-ebook.com/plugins), and that server needs to download plugins from mobiread forum. I was thinking if a plugin has already released on GitHub, it's very convenient if calibre server can fetch the updated plugin directly from GitHub release page. So the plugin developers don't need to edit their posts manually. What do you guys think about this? If more people like this feature, Kovid will consider implement it(https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...mment-44170863).

How would have have the thread with the discussion and help and what not? GitHub is not good for that.

IMO it's not worth changing the Plugin Updater to cater to a few plugin developers who want to avoid having to upload a zip from GitHub to MR when they have a new release.

The only reason I can see for changing the current method would be to allow a Version repository (not the Linux type) similar to what Calibre has for its releases.
That way, the PI's would not need to be kept One Size fits most (levels of Calibre)

That could done without any changes to the current scheme of things by providing a link in a plugin's first post to a Github Releases page a'la Sigil ==>> Sigil Releases @ GitHub

I'm not saying to replace the current update method. My point is GitHub release can be automated and some plugins already have their releases at GitHub, so I think it will save time and avoid human mistakes(for example: upload wrong file) to add this new feature to calibre plugin server.

Another reason is new accounts of this forum is not allowed to edit their posts. It's impossible for new developers to update their plugins.

And I still think it's need to use the self-signed certificate for https://code.calibre-ebook.com/plugins.

The inability to edit ones own posts must be fixable - even if it means posting a bunch of blah-blah posts in the Lounge. PM one of the Admins (green names) if it's still a problem, or post something here ==>> Feedback.

Some people download and install plugins manually, in my case when I want to test a plugin I don't use, or test a new version of one I do use. IMO it would be unreasonable to expect a user to come here for some plugins and go to Github for others, for no reason other than to save someone the effort of uploading a file from Github to here when a plugin is updated, which in most cases is infrequent.

Anyway it is Kovid's decision.
