Wikka Update notifier

Reported by: DarTar Owned by: unassigned
Priority: low Milestone: blue-sky
Component: actions Version:
Severity: normal Keywords: upgrade install syndication rss


I'd like to add a simple action to be added to the (default) WikkaReleaseNotes and/or WikkaDocumentation page. The action connects to the main Wikka server and checks whether a new version is available. If this is the case a small update box is displayed in the client wiki, otherwise nothing happens.

Issues to take into account are:

  • How to reduce traffic to the wikka website produced by these update checks (keeping in mind that WikkaReleaseNotes is not among the most frequently viewed pages on client wikis)
  • Where/how to display a notification that a new release is available (adding sth discrete when the Admin is logged-in could also be an option)
  • How to code server-side the handler supposed to announce that new releases are available and what is the most appropriate format (plain text vs. RSS).
  • Make this option configurable, so one can easily switch it off.
