I’m considering Mender for a project where we need the updates to be user initiated. I.e. something like the behavior of a smartphone or other system with a UI. What we need to achieve is something like this:
- User clicks a “Check for Updates” button in the UI (a website served by a local webserver running on the device). Info is displayed about the update/if it is available.
- User clicks start update. Update progress is displayed.
1 is optional it’s fine if the user just clicks update and then it updates if an update is available.
It’s also important that the user can update whenever they want. These devices are seldom connected to the internet and the user needs to be able to update even if the update was released 1 month ago.
Is this possible with Mender?
