IDEA: Flock browser latest trunk build auto downloader/updater
« on: February 20, 2007, 08:11:53 PM »
Hi, I am just looking for someone to make an extension or an external app that would download the current flock browser developmental/trunk windows build and then run the installer every two hours(or any amount of time the user specifies). The latest flock windows build can be found here or there.

You can contact me if anymore info is needed:  killeroid [at] killeroid dot com

From what i can see, the name of the file changes everytime it is updated, right?

no, it doesnt. I noticed that the latest file can also be found here in the folder with the highest name(the folders are named like this    "linux epoch time. svn revision number" ) So the latest build will be in the folder with the biggest name. Hope thats understandable and of any help. Thanks

Well... The following Autohotkey code will do it, then.
Just download autohotkey, install it and run the script:

;options

;time in milliseconds
Time := 2 * 60 * 60 * 1000

;url for the executable
File = http://tinderbox.flock.com/builds/trunk/windows/latest/Flock_Setup_0_7_99_.exe
;end of options

Settimer,Download,%time%
return

  UrlDownloadToFile,%file%,FileToRun.exe
  Run,FileToRun.exe
  return
