Experimental project

This is a sandbox project, which contains experimental code for developer use only.

Better Updater is a small module that provides a functionality which allows users to install new modules into subdirectories of sites/all/modules.


  • Allows to install new modules into existing directories inside sites/all/modules.
  • Better Updater maintains the specific hierarchy of modules, for instance all developer modules can go into sites/all/modules/developer or all of the conributed modules into sites/all/modules/contrib.


  • Make select list instead of simple textfield to choose proper subdirectory.
  • Expand Better Updater to install new modules in sites/mysite.com directory.
  • Enable Better Updater functionality for users with javascript disabled.
  • Make possibility to create new directories and install new modules there.
  • Removing the fieldset.


Better Updater needs Update module enabled.
