Is there any way how I can automatically check for available Magento extension updates on the CLI? I thought about the
mage tool as well as about
n98-magerun, but both options do not seem to work.
./mage install ./mage list-upgrades
No upgrades available, although updates are available. Maybe this is because I use a
modman environment and
mage does not like symlinks? Or do I use it in a wrong way or do I have wrong expectations?
n98-magerun does not seem to have such an option at all.
I would love to have an output similar to that one:
Namespace1_Extension1: no update available Namespace1_Extension2: installed version: 1.0.0 ; available version: 1.1.0 ...
I would expect this to work with extensions from Magento Connect, but it would be cool if it also worked with extensions from GitHub (difficult, but possible: get GitHub link from README, and check GitHub page for the current version).
Edit: Since it is rather bad practice to install via MC manager, the solution should also work for extensions which have been installed manually.
