MineDown

A library that adds the ability to use a MarkDown inspired markup to write Minecraft chat components!

It provides a custom mark up syntax which is loosely based on MarkDown that adds the ability to use the full power of component messages with the same simplicity as legacy formatting codes. (Which it can still support!) It also includes a way to directly replace placeholders in the messages, both string based and component based ones!

See this plugin for a simple implementation.

How to use it

The library’s main API access is through the MineDown.class and its parse methods.

E.g. you can use it like this in your Spigot plugin:

player.spigot().sendMessage(new MineDown(rawMessage).replace(replacements).toComponent());

or with a static approach:

player.spigot().sendMessage(MineDown.parse(rawMessage, replacements));

Take a look at the MineDown JavaDocs for more detailed info on the library and the included classes.

Include it into your plugin

You can easily include this library into your plugin by using maven. Make sure to relocate it into your plugin’s package!

Artifact

To be used with bungeecord-chat in BungeeCord and Spigot-based servers:

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>de.themoep</groupId>
        <artifactId>minedown</artifactId>
        <version>1.6.2-SNAPSHOT</version>
        <scope>compile</scope>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

For usage in any platform that is supported by kyori-adventure:

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>de.themoep</groupId>
        <artifactId>minedown-adventure</artifactId>
        <version>1.6.2-SNAPSHOT</version>
        <scope>compile</scope>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

Please note that you need to provide an adventure platform library yourself in that case.

Alternative to shading

Alternatively you can also directly depend on my MineDownPlugin instead of shading in this library! MineDownPlugin includes a non-relocated version of this library.
