I fixed up some crashes over the weekend, so the current code in SVN should be ok.
Unfortunately, while I was at it, it seems that ppc support broke, so if you're interested in a build for Intel machines, I can send you one, until I work out how to fix PPC.
Edit: here's a link to the Intel only build (Do not upgrade to this on PPC!)http://kismith.co.uk/tmp/MacAceUpdater-0.4.dmg.

May 3, 2007ATC: as phillips says, please ensure you have a trailing slash on your directory for addons, and then report back (yes, this is poor, but it's the way it is until I improve matters).Posted in: Updaters
phillips: glad it works (mostly) for you (and it's not a generic intel mac problem - I develop on intel macs). I've been told that the permissions problem is a server-side bug with the script which generates the zip files (I can still work around this, but haven't yet).
pipoca: glad it works :)
May 2, 2007I've uploaded a new version (only version-related fixes) to http://macaceupdater.googlecode.com/files/MacAceUpdater-0.3.2.dmg. If this seems to work (i.e. I haven't built for intel-only (again)), I'll set the self-updater version to distribute it to everyone.Posted in: Updaters
May 1, 2007Righty, the changelog format has changed on the server again, it seems, which means MAU needs an update before it'll detect your installed addons. I'll try and get to it soon - be thankfully for the self-version checks, and that you'll know as soon as I've fixed it :)Posted in: Updaters
Mar 20, 2007Yes, I should probably add those (at least on a right-click or such).Posted in: Updaters
At the moment, for a variety of reasons, I'm not playing WoW much, and as such I'm not working on MAU much.
If anyone wants to help with development, that'd be cool, else I'll try and make some headway when I have a chance.

If you select and install an addon you previously did not have installed; refresh the list, the addon does not show up as installed.
Could you switch the URL to
and see if it's true there as well? The problem is due to the changelog format being changed, but I've been assured that it's since been changed back - certainly using the above update url, it's working ok for me.
-Hide NewApplication -> Hide MacAceUpdater
-Bottom Frame is not scrollable by scroll buttons or mousewheel
Right - I don't know why this is really.
-Preference Window - title is still "Window" and Reset does not do anything-at least it does not refill the default values.
Good catches, thanks.
Like I said, those are purely aesthetic, fairly easy to fix assuming you're using Xcode/Interface Builder :P
Now if you really want to sink your teeth into something, let's see a WoWAce Widget (Dashcode is now public) using the RSS feed of what's been updated w/click to download hehehe :)
I might leave those to someone else..

The java wowace updater from Nickeny Fiken updated the list of plugins to install/update straight from the Addons directory. This meant that I could start it up and get it to update without having to select the ones to update each time. Just tested this with MacAceUpdater and it doesn't appear to do this - I select "sct" in the search field then select all sct & sctd addons. I then quit and reload it and it has not retained this information.
You can do the same thing in MAU - just click 'Select outdated addons'.
Also the ones you've ticked to install/update gets reset each time you update the list of addons from the server..
That's deliberate - refreshing the list reloads the list from the server, checks all the local versions and unticks all items.
That being said none of my Ace2 addons have caused any sort of catastrophic addon meltdown due to not being updated but it would be nice to be able to update my Ace2 addons
You should be able to update your Ace addons using MAU :)

It would also be nice to be able to sort the columns, so atleast finding the addons would not be a problem.
This was requested earlier in the thread - I intend to do this.

btw, this tool really is a great help.
I can't see any differences between v0.2 and v0.3, other than the icons
Visually it's probably just the icons and the uninstall button that changed - I changed some things under the hood as well, but they won't bother anyone.
most of all I'd like to be able to sort the colums
Yep - that's one of the things I changed under the hood, most of the work for that's now done (I started MAU to learn obj-c and cocoa, so anything heavily GUI like that takes me a while to look up).
click on the addon name to be redirected to the wiki and hover over the addon to see the changelog. Actually, the changelog is probably most important, so I know if I really want to update that specific addon...
I was going to take a slightly different approach, and bring out a details drawer when you select an addon - I don't want to do mouseover much because it'll mean hitting the server quite heavily with HTTP requests when people wave the mouse about the window. I hope the details drawer will cover your needs though.
Jan 31, 2007First: Thanks :)Posted in: Updaters
With/Without externals is on my roadplan (I'll probably do this for the next version). It already deletes before updating, though this isn't an option - it always does it. What I'll probably add in the future is a nice way to restore the backups that MAU makes - at the moment you'd have to copy the addon back by hand.
Jan 25, 2007I've mentioned this in the past in other threads when it was still very young and rough, but I've written MacAceUpdater, which works somewhat as WowAceUpdater does, only native to Mac OS X instead of Windows.Posted in: Updaters
The latest build is available at http://macaceupdater.googlecode.com/files/MacAceUpdater-0.3.dmg.

Bugs or feature requests can be posted to http://code.google.com/p/macaceupdater/issues/list or simply left in this thread.
Anyone interested in the source can check it out from http://code.google.com/p/macaceupdater/source.
Finally, anyone interested in chatting to me can find me in the #wowace irc channel on freenode, with the nick |Kev|.
Dec 29, 2006I'm sorry if this is considered bad form, but I'm multi-posting this message to the various threads I've found asking for a Mac version of W(in|ow)AceUpdater, as it's directly relevant. I'm not trying to out-do WowAceUpdater when the Mac port of that arrives, but as this was only about 4 days' work at a couple of hours a day, I thought I'd let people play with it until such a time comes.Posted in: Addon Ideas
I decided that, over Christmas, in between festivities, I'd teach myself Objective-C and Cocoa and write something native for a Mac. The only thing that came to mind was a Mac port of WowAceUpdater, so I've written a native OSX version.
It's still very early days, but it works just fine for me, for what that's worth.
Any brave souls are welcome to take a snapshot of their AddOns folder, grab a build from http://code.google.com/p/macaceupdater/ and try it out, and please report bugs at the same address.
I'll update it at some point with some better way of contacting me, or contributing, with a mailing list or forum, but at the moment I'm just glad to have something that works.
I hope someone finds a use for this:
