Tiny Update

Build Status

What is this?

Tiny Update is an Updater that focuses on being easy to use while being feature rich and fast!

What does this contain?

The main parts of the updater are:

  • IUpdateCreator: This is responsible for creating both delta and full updates
  • IUpdateApplier: This is responsible for applying any update that gets thrown to your application!
  • UpdateChecker: This is responsible for Checking for new updates, downloading updates and getting any release notes (it also contains an IUpdateApplier and exposes the IUpdateApplier functions)
  • Hard Link's: This allows us to have no need for copying files that haven't changed from the last update
  • TinyUpdate.Create: This project allows you to easy create updates for your application! Note that you need .Net 5+ installed on your system to use this tool (just type in dotnet tool install --global TinyUpdate.Create --version to install it and then any time you need to create an update you just have to type in tinyupdate)

What is currently implemented?

This is implemented for Windows and Linux



This is fully implemented



This is fully implemented with Hard Link support and has more modern MsDelta flags, allowing MsDelta to create the smallest update files possible



This is fully implemented with support for REST and for GraphQL (Note that the GraphQL api requires a personal token with public_repo)

What needs to be implemented?


  • LocalClient - This will be for any update that are stored on a drive
  • WebClient - This will be for any update that are stored on the internet


  • Installer/Uninstaller
  • Taskbar and start menu shortcut creation
  • Staging for beta's
  • Events on startup for when application was updated
