JoomlArt is proud to introduce JA Extensions Manager, a brand new component for Joomla .The component aims to bring a new way to manage extensions: upgrade, rollback, remote install, internal repository and compare versions.

Our development team promised to transform old extensions management into a new and modern one. The component has its roots in the Joomla Extensions Manager, but it comes with new features to speed up and ease the processes.

  • Internal Repository
  • Updates Checker
  • Version Comparison
  • Upgrade and Back-up User Setup
  • Remote Install and Upgrade
  • AJAX Technology

Internal repository

  • Store multiple versions of your extensions packs in the repository
  • Each pack contain both original files and modified by user
  • Repository also stores the database for any of the content extensions

Updates checker

  • For each of your extension, you can easily check for updates
  • If you uploaded a new version for an extension in the repository, click "Check for updates" and the component will show up "New version is available".
  • If your extension is configured to use external update service, it will search for updates on developer repository.

Version comparison

  • Compare files from user setup with the new version files
  • Compare files content
  • Highlight new files, changed by developer, changed by user, deleted by developer, modified by both developer and user

Upgrade and back-up user setup

  • After the comparison of the user setup with latest version, click "Update" for the extension
  • Re-apply user customization and check for any malfunctions caused by the code changes
  • Roll-back to the previous setup if the update and customizations reapplied don't work properly

Remote install and upgrade

  • Configure external update service and login to your desired extension's website with JA Extensions Manager interface to access downloads.
  • You can upload extensions from a remote address and the repository will keep the installation package in the jaextmanager_data folder for future usage.
  • Repository will keep both initial user setup before the update and the new version of the extension to allow user to easily rollback later.
  • When you apply customizations to the new version, and then rollback, this new and customized version will be also stored in the repository.

AJAX technology

  • Checking for updates, updating, uploading new versions, all operations controlled via AJAX technologies, no complete page refreshing.
  • Updating extensions now makes it possible to save bandwidth too.
