A Shortcut with the sole focus of demonstrating an automatic update mechanism for Shortcuts.
It accomplishes this by fetching and processing a remotely-hosted JSON file. From this, it then provides notification of an update being available, the change-log as well as a mechanism for then fetching this update.
I cannot take any credit for the update whatsoever, all recognition must go to /u/tdevx, but I have put together a Shortcut to demonstrate this update capability. Whilst I'm using this update mechanism in my other Shortcuts, I thought that cobbling-together a Shortcut with a sole focus of demonstrating the update mechanism might make the process easier to understand and reproduce.
