Airtable Toolkit Bundle Downloader / Updater (for UpdateKit)

Checks all Airtable shortcuts that are part of the Airtable Toolkit for an update


Description

The Airtable Toolkit is broken up in reusable functions to make it easy to create new and flexible Siri Shortcuts with ease. Unfortunately, with the way that UpdateKit is right now, it would run every time ANY of these functions were called. Possibly 10x within ONE shortcut.

So instead of that, I made a Manual Update option that checks each component for an update, whenever you want, and doesnt run every time.

In addition to checking for updates for each function (shortcut) of the Airtable Toolkit, it also looks for newly released functions and gives you the option to download them.
