How to provide live updates for extensions in Joomla?

How to provide live updates for extensions in Joomla?

As a Joomla extension provider, we are always rolling out updates for our extensions. Whether they are minor bug fixes or major feature releases, its always recommended that customers stay up-to-date so that they get the best of features, bug fixes as well as security fixes.

Normally the only way to notify them would be via Blogs and Newsletters. However this needs the customer to do the process of updation manually. 

With Joomla however, there is a much easier and smarter way of doing this using the Updates system. This is already baked into the core of Joomla and can be used by any Joomla extension. There is a core way to achieve both notifications and automatic updates which you can read about here. It works pretty well for free extensions but needs you to manually maintain the updates manifest. We have updated the blog with some inputs from weebler to also demonstrate how you can do this with core Joomla. 

The Akeeba Release System from the awesome Akeeba team however can give this system a major shot in the arm by completely automating Manifest generation and maintenance and also support updates for commercial extensions

Here’s a quick tutorial on how you can use ARS to automate extension update notifications and live updates in your extensions.

In fact since Joomla 3x has become the standard, your end users might be completely missing your updates if you are not using the Joomla 3x notification system and rely on your own ‘In extension notifications’ Read more about this in our earlier blog.

Note: This Blog is purely targeted to developers!
