    data: addons.json content
    would be nice
    force:
    status: (success/failure) message: descriptive result (could be updated to version x.x.x)
Good suggestions, however I've personally switched to a different system, so this project likely won't see any updates from me in a while, aside from things like bugfixes and PRs.

The system I'm using has a detailed guide (written by me) here:
http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=55801

Advantages are:
  • No need to set up a server (Heroku) and keep it up-to-date
  • Settings are stored per-project (alike the .pkgmeta), not hidden in settings/gists
  • No need to poll CurseForge for updates, which can't be guaranteed
  • More widely adopted by larger projects (BigWigs in particular), so it should be considered more stable/long-term available

My guide has a hard dependancy on Git, but the script can just as well be run locally (which is way harder with this proxy project)
