Hi, I've been working on the App Updater helper for Levure. The goal is to make automatic updating of Levure applications really straightforward. The helper leverages Sparkle on macOS and WinSparkle on Windows (the two desktop platforms I develop for). I used the Foreign Function Interface (FFI) in LiveCode Builder (LCB) to incorporate Sparkle and WinSparkle.
Here are the relevant links. The README has all of the instructions. The release page has the downloadable files. I would be interested in hearing from anybody who tries to implement this in their own application.
