chrome/updater/README.md

An updater for desktop client software using Chromium code and tools.

The updater will be built from a common, platform neutral code base, as part of the Chrome build. The updater is going to be a drop-in replacement for Google Update/Omaha/Keystone and could be customized by 3rd party embedders to for updating non-Google client software, such as Edge.

The desktop platforms include Windows, macOS, Linux.

There are many reasons to start a new code base for this:

  • Reducing the development cost and the code duplication among platforms.
  • Implementing update algorithms consistently and correctly: checking for updates, applying updates, gathering metrics, and load shedding.
  • Use world-class developer tool chains for build, security, and stability.

The existing Omaha/Keystone design, implementation, and production issues apply to this project as well.
