If you are getting errors saying that the add-on is unable to connect to XenForo's resource manager due to a 403 error, please upgrade to the latest version and then run the following query:
Code:
UPDATE xf_addon SET `install_upgrade_error`=0, `install_upgrade_last_check`=0;


Waindigo submitted a new resource:

Install and Upgrade by Waindigo - Upload zip/rar files or enter any URL to install add-ons, import languages and styles, and more.

Description:

This add-on extends the current install and import abilities of XenForo, plus those provided by other Waindigo add-ons to allow you to:
  • upload of a zip or rar file from your computer or from a file on the server;
  • enter a URL of any resource manager page (not just on XenForo.com), even if login is required;
  • enter a link to a zip, rar or xml file download anywhere on the internet, including support for basic authentication;
  • ability to select from a list of...

Same function as Chris Deeming's addon?
As @yavuz says, the other sources bit is absolutely key. Also, this add-on supports importing of all sorts of other XML types, most of which are unlikely to ever be supported by @Chris Deeming's add-on because they are proprietary Waindigo XML types -- although languages and styles have been thrown in for good measure.

Note that because they are not identical, this add-on CAN be installed alongside @Chris Deeming's add-on. In fact, both add-ons can be used to install each other!

This is madness. :LOL:

No, this is XenForo!

Should work fine. When you upload it will give you a choice of which colour you want to install. It will also place all the other XML files in the install/data directory so you can easily install those later (without having to re-upload the whole zip file).
What if one style has to be the parent of the other styles?

Then the user will need to select the parent style and then install the child style(s) afterwards. Unfortunately, there is no way for the Install and Upgrade add-on to know which style is the parent, so you will have to explain this to your user. Probably easier for your users if you include combined style XML files in your ZIP as well.
