func CopyFile

func CopyFile(srcPath, dstPath string) (err error)

    CopyFile atomically copies a file using the update registry's tmp dir.

    func DelayedRestart

    func DelayedRestart(delay time.Duration)

      DelayedRestart triggers a restart of the application by shutting down the module system gracefully and returning with RestartExitCode. The restart may be further delayed by up to 10 minutes by the internal task scheduling system. This only works if the process is managed by portmaster-start.

      func DisableUpdateSchedule

      func DisableUpdateSchedule() error

        DisableUpdateSchedule disables the update schedule. If called, updates are only checked when TriggerUpdate() is called.

        func GetFile

        func GetFile(identifier string) (*updater.File, error)

          GetFile returns the latest generic file identified by the given identifier.

          func GetPlatformFile

          func GetPlatformFile(identifier string) (*updater.File, error)

            GetPlatformFile returns the latest platform specific file identified by the given identifier.

            func RestartNow

            func RestartNow()

              RestartNow immediately executes a restart. This only works if the process is managed by portmaster-start.

              func RootPath

              func RootPath() string

                RootPath returns the root path used for storing updates.

                func TriggerRestartIfPending

                func TriggerRestartIfPending()

                  TriggerRestartIfPending triggers an automatic restart, if one is pending. This can be used to prepone a scheduled restart if the conditions are preferable.

                  func TriggerUpdate

                  func TriggerUpdate() error

                    TriggerUpdate queues the update task to execute ASAP.
