TUpdate is an updater written in Rust. It serves a pretty niche purpose. It might be useful for things like video game modpacks shared among a small group of friends. It's probably not in a state that can be relied upon yet.


Client machines must be able to run Rust programs. The server can run any HTTP server capable of serving files.


You will need to create an index.lua file on the server, as well as .cat files describing all downloadable files, and the downloadable files themselves. Then you can run tupdate on the clients, either with URL=http://<your server>/<path to index.lua> in a file tupdate.conf in the same directory as the executable, or with the URL passed directly on the command line.


  • Explain what index.lua looks like
  • Explain cat files, and make a tool that makes them
  • GUI frontends
    • Cocoa
    • GTK+
    • Win32
  • Testing, testing, and more testing
  • Polish
  • Translations (possibly including Polish)
