    You could have just pmed @ihaveamac. Besides I don't believe smea introduces periodic updates for his launcher, just more accesses with newer payloads.

    It can be a good idea :)

    there's not really any point to it anyway. smealum's launcher is hardly updated.

    I mean if you desperately want it...

    you want a starter pack downloader? maybe. this is not as simple as just pointing the updater to a new location though.

    quite a bit so it extracts the .zip to get HANS, the boot.3dsx, etc...

    having it update just HANS feels like a waste to me, since the entire starter pack has to be downloaded to do it.

    it does feel like only HANS gets updates though, so maybe.

    since the starter pack isn't hosted on a site using HTTPS, I don't need to do anything with my server. there's a bonus.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    In theory it could be used with any other homebrew .3dsx file if they implement it in there homebrew.

    The idea of the 3DS HB Launcher having auto updates sounds like a good idea. The Wii's homebrew channel managed to implement auto-updates, so it only makes sense to implement it into the 3DS homebrew channel ;)
    However, there would need to be a specific place on the web where you can connect and download the latest payload and what-not, and you need to make sure that the webpage/server is always active.

    For the source code of the auto-update mod, yes. For the payload hosting, no.

    Why can't we use gh-pages for payloads and updates?

    Hmm... well it could work I guess. You could link to it through the HBL, and if any changes have been made to the payload, then it'll trigger the update, I could guess?

    Because most people currenly use Masher's homebrew launcher. It completly obliterates Smealum's launcher in terms of features and even functionality.

    Also, HANS doesn't update frequently, the updates so far have been bug fixes because of the recent launch.

    How about a server with homebrew for updating apps?
    I think most dev's would join...
    I mean, you update guess the number, Hans, Portal3ds and FTP-3ds.
