Tiny Update

Build Status

What is this?

Tiny Update is an Updater that focuses on being easy to use while being feature rich and fast!

What does this contain?

The main parts of the updater are:

  • IUpdateCreator: This is responsible for creating both delta and full updates
  • IUpdateApplier: This is responsible for applying any update that gets thrown to your application!
  • UpdateChecker: This is responsible for Checking for new updates, downloading updates and getting any release notes (it also contains an IUpdateApplier and exposes the IUpdateApplier functions)
  • Hard Link's: This allows us to have no need for copying files that haven't changed from the last update
  • TinyUpdate.Create: This project allows you to easy create updates for your application! Note that you need .Net 5+ installed on your system to use this tool (just type in dotnet tool install --global TinyUpdate.Create --version 0.0.0.6-alpha to install it and then any time you need to create an update you just have to type in tinyupdate)
