Why is ToonHUD's Updater no longer supported?
Hi ToonHUD community,

I noticed recently that ToonHUD updater is no longer supported. Why is this so? Many of us rely on the ability to easily customize our ToonHUD experience at will. Can you please bring back support for the updater?

The Updater now is on the website, so it works on all OS. Previously it worked only on Windows.
You can customize your HUD on the website and download it. When it's updates you just redownload it and replace it and that's it.

I ditched the updater mostly because:
  • People had so much problems with it
  • It didn't support OSX and Linux
  • It was hard to maintain

The new editor was a nice project to do. It's lot easier to update and add previews and such. Now you can also share your themes, which you couldn't do before.

I know people liked the easy one-click way to update their hud, but I think this is overall change to better.

I'm not going to bring back the updater. I do not have time to code and maintain one.

This read got me an idea. You can develop API which we can update it with wget or something with task scheduler, I don't know if this is possible with customizations and stuff :)

Yeah, I agree with that notion. Chances are many people will only set up their theme once and then only download a new version when an update is available. A simple program to fetch the newest version of a given theme in one click would be cool.

The site looks cool and all but i don't want to config everything again.
At least make some way to upload current settings from toon updater to that website.

The site is good and all but is very confusing the first time you use it and that some options are missing, such as the class icons on the selection menu being 3D...isn't that bad

Agreed.

Error: InvalidStateError: Failed to read the 'responseText' property from 'XMLHttpRequest': The value is only accessible if the object's 'responseType' is '' or 'text' (was 'arraybuffer').

очень жаль, а ведь раньше было гораздо лучше и проблем не возникало вообще. Если это не исправят в ближайшее время - думаю придется пользоваться другими темами оформления

Personally, as a longtime Windows user who switched to Mac, I found this new alternative amazing, considering how easy it is to customize my HUD and still use it. Thanks so much for creating this fantastic hud. Also, as a developer myself, I completely understand. Oftentimes web development can be way easier that desktop dev, and moving the HUD to be usable by all OS's was a brilliant move. I applaud you.

Sure, it was a good move in that way. But a bit of consideration for old users would be nice, an "import settings" or something. And the updater program worked great.
