I am away from my development system from 9 December 'till the end of the month. I anticipate being online every few days to check support.

Package Magic Starter

Developed by


Take the pain out of manually installing packages

If you have a web site that is not connected to the marketplace, fenced in an intranet, or develop your own packages, Package Magic Starter takes all the hassle out of manually uploading and installing theme and addon packages to a site.

Once Package Magic Starter is installed, you can forget about the inconvenience of using FTP or SSH to upload and unzip packages. Even if you are a command line guru, Package Magic Starter will save you time on every manual package installation or update.

Package Magic Starter provides:

  • A dashboard page to upload packages from your computer. Packages will be uploaded and ready to install through Add Functionality
  • Checks to make sure uploaded packages are valid and, where already installed, provide an update rather than an old version.
  • A framework upon which the full version of Package Magic can be installed.
