Hello fellas,

everybody likes videos more than words, so first things first, here’s what we’re talking about: http://youtu.be/3UNA5AHEFF0

A while ago, envato released its wordpress toolkit which is great and we used it to include the automatic updates feature in our themes.

However, using a custom Theme_Upgrader turned out to be not such an easy task and we ended up adding quite some glue code. So, inspired by a recent thread here in the forums, we did a small research and found this

https://github.com/jeremyclark13/automatic-theme-plugin-update

In short, the author uses the “pre_set_site_transient_update_themes” to inject custom updates in the native WordPress update system, which is so great because all you need to do now is using the Envato API to
  1. check if your theme has an update
  2. get the download link
  3. inject the above in the WordPress update system

So we created a small class using only class-envato-protected-api.php from the Envato toolkit and made available for all authors to download and use in their own theme: download link

This looks awesome! Does it work with plugins too? How users provide purchasecode and API key?

Edit: ok I’ve read the readme – seems plugins doesn’t work with this

Nope, as far as i know, envato apis only handle theme updates for now.

Purchase code is not needed, only buyer username/api key. The class must be provided the values, how to get them from the end user is author business but one would tipically add a couple of extra fields in theme options page.
