Extension Signing

Extension Signing

Postby medeek » Thu Jul 13, 2017 1:51 am

I'm trying to roll a new revision of the plugin but the Extension signing page is not working:

https://extensions.sketchup.com/en/deve ... _signature

It won't generate the 2015 and earlier encryption or even the 2016 encryption for some reason, any one else notice this problem?

I came across it. And it works under certain conditions. For me it worked when signing through Microsoft Edge rather than through Chrome.

I just tried it with Internet Explorer and the same result, it returns the original unsigned .rbz file with all of the files as they were, unencrypted.

Now what do I do? I can't release a new version of the plugin.

We are all in the same boat. Nothing we can do.

I also can't release a new version. Good thing I'm a bit paranoid and always check the package.

The encryption in the signing-portal is foobar !

The powers-that-be are well aware of the problem - it's been a few days !

"They are working on a fix"...

This is really unacceptable - they force us into using their convoluted system which then breaks [anyone has issues with EWH submissions which presumably use the same encryption-tools ? I never use it...].
A more robust set up for signing and encrypting extensions that are not on the EWH would have been expected [I think it was even 'promised' ?].
IMHO this is at its best 'Mickey-Mouse'.
It does not show Sketchup [Trimble] in a good light at all !

The military term that you are suggesting is quite apt.

It was actually coined as Fubar and means
f** up beyond all recognition.

Another good one is Snafu
Systems Normal All f** up

However if you don't use their portal then you don't have access to their newer encryption.

Let Trimble fix the problem. On my side I made them aware on last Sunday, after 3 days where the certification / encryption was already working randomly.

What I think is badly designed is that it should return an error message when the certification / encryption is not done. I realized it because I know the size of my encrypted rbz.

Currently, I cannot even access the site ("not authorized to access this page").

I guess I could issue my plugin unencrypted but it wouldn't take much effort to circumvent my licensing system if one actually tried. Additionally all of my code is exposed so it can be easily copied and used in a competitor's plugin.

I just tried it and it looks like it is working now. :)

I have a big RBZ to process next week and it'd be nice to have confidence in it.
I trust you are 100% sure everything is now getting done properly ?

My CabMaker rbz is quite large, just over 20 megabytes. I often get a Browser time out - however if I wait a bit and then reopen the portal the message that I can download the extension is there. I then check the rbz for rbe files and rb files. If only the 1 rb file and lots of rbe then I am satisfied. Finally I install the plugin and test it out.

The reason for the large size is the manual is almost 8 megs (180 pages with lots of images)
Also my context sensitive help folder has 360 png files and is now over 6 megs.

I use a batch file that backs up my rb files into the proper version numbered folder and creates the rbz package for the portal. The batch file also moves my testing configuration out of the plugin and moves it back after the package is complete.

I also simplify things by using a public area for my plugins. This area is accessible by all versions of Sketchup from SU 7 all the way to SU 2017.

require 'sketchup.rb'
require_all('c:/users/public/documents/sketchup')
