Autoupdate feature for an addon?

I want to auto update the addon if there is newer version. It can be via Github.
How should I start?

Sadly, this feature does not exist. The only way to do it is to download the project and update it manually.
However, you could probably make this process faster by setting up a bat file that somehow uses gmad to send the contents of the zipped package.

You can only tell people to update (use http.Fetch), but you can’t physically write over the files.
