Downloads, real time built download file


Recommended Posts

It would be awesome to see, as part of optional functionality, in downloads a way to build a download file archive in real time from specified (via config) local folder.

Let's say we provide something like full latest package of some product we offer. Instead preparing that manually and individually for each version and reuploading it via Downloads submission form, it would be best that system would build such archive from files located on the host at specific location. So each time there is download request the package is being built and pushed to end user. To make it even more efficient, it would be possible to store modified date of all files in that specific location the archive is built from and rebuild it only when any of files has changed.

This is a feature that would make the Downloads app closer to Enterprise level app, due to higher automation and therefore decreasing requirement of human involvement in front-end processes.
