PHP Software Updater Publisher's description
from Michael Braun
PHP Software Updater allows to write website software which updates more or less automatically from the main programming server or one of its mirrors.
This project consists of a specification of how a client should communicate with the server to fetch it's updates. The server is scaled to support hosting of mulitple applications at the same time.
This tools allow to write website software which updates more or less automatically from the main programming server or one of its mirrors.
Additionally this project provides reference implementation for this specification. As it is mainly developped using php and for php applications, it comes that the communication makes use of base64_encode, base64_decode (which are avaliable on mulitple platforms) but also of serialize and unseralize, which are quite bound to php.
Therefore a implementation using an other platform or language would at least require a new serialize / unseralize implementation. Features such as rsa encryption and signature are put back to underlaying communication protocol, most likely http or https.
