@siredesigns
It actually fairly simple. Just ask the user to input their username and API key. Run a compare-search to see if their purchased items your application exists. If it does, go through with the install, if not… well.. don’t install it.
That’s great, but what if someone replaces the installer with different one (their own) what to do then??

Like you said, you can’t stop everything :-). I’ve had people email me for support who purposely downloaded form a Warez site…

Already working on this :-).

An additional check would be to ensure that only one user per one installation exists. Upon a successful install, you should have it send an email with JUST the username of the user to your email address. That, or update an online web app.

In all honesty, the fact the Envato is seems so closed and protects the buyers of products behind a wall of secrecy discourages me from releasing full scale web applications. Letting Envato know about the sites that release it doesn’t seem to get me anywhere either. I just get the same response, “Issue a DMCA form to the illegal party.” That never works… and I really don’t want to give my personal information to someone downloading my content illegally already.

Yeah but the ‘Item Purchase Code’ is a long alphanumerical code. Maybe they’re building a new feature for the authors to verify purchases. Just sayin’

I would die of happiness if this were the case.

I will have something like what you described very soon. It is set up like Basecamp (Many to Many communications, ie. Clients can have multiple “Contacts” or “Collaborators” who can track Project progress.)

Tell us a bit about yourself. What do you use the web for? Do you like online web applications for finance, invoicing, to do’s, etc.? I would recommend my helpdesk, QuickTick :-) http://codecanyon.net/item/quicktick-the-deployable-helpdesk/62614

So, does anyone have any idea what this is? Is it for self-hosted web applications? Is it a place where we could maybe separate the full applications on CodeCanyon from the scripts and helper classes? I’d love to put my new version of Clivo on AppBase if it focuses on mainly just web apps.

RSS might be cool, yeah, especially from the blog of the company who uses this app.

Also, if you send me the template, I can get a great design out of it!

Panic’s Coda cuts development time down considerably. I have enough shortcodes to basically create my own language haha. Snippets are terrific, the built in FTP is great, and mass find/replace works perfectly as well.
