Extend variable creation with "Content from Cookie"

MAPJe71 3 years ago • updated 3 years ago 1

CodePlex requires two request-verification-tokens to retrieve the redirect-URL to download the actual file (dated 2013).

One token can be retrieved from the applicable HTML-page. The other token can be retrieved from a cookie.

However, AFAIK Ketarin does not support reading cookies.

In order to be able to use Ketarin to download from CodePlex I hereby request the feature to read cookies.

Preferable in such a way that it is possible to store the data in a variable (e.g. "Content from Cookie").

sanity checks for download URL

Shawn 2 years ago • updated 6 months ago 2

It would be very useful in situations like this if invalid characters in a URL (such as carriage returns and line feeds) and URLs that failed other sanity checks (like being over 4k in length, have no protocol, or no domain) had a persistent visual indicator when updating, editing, or saving the app profile. Something to indicate an invalid URL is being used. Perhaps the specific variable, or URL or filehippo ID fields have a reddish background, a new status icon with a broken globe, or something similar.

Proper support for Shared Folder

musahi0128 10 months ago 0


I've been using Ketarin for a while now,

Now i try to setup Windows Shared Folder as download location,

The thing is, when i set the download file to be saved at the shared location, either it's directly (like \\hostname\folder) or via mapped network drive, it's always loop on downloading the setup file,

I've already searching the forum with no luck,

Hope you take a look at it,

Thank you


Installer dependency

musahi0128 10 months ago • updated by Blake Sinnett 9 months ago 1

The idea is to make Ketarin like apt on Linux.
Author specify which apps need to be installed before the selected app is installed.
When installing app, if there is any dependency, the installation routine for the dependencies should be called first.

When dependencies not exist, download from online database.


Allow global option for checking for downloads without installing on st artup

Sheldon Hull 3 years ago 0

Right now this is individually setup. I'd like to see this as a global option so that I can avoid impacting my startup when I use it to check for updates, while ensuring I still am automatically flagging for updates
