    A easy to use API for developers to take advantage of the new Action Bar feature in Minecraft 1.8/1.9.

    Spigot 1.8/1.9/1.10
    If you are running the full Spigot/CraftBukkit 1.8.x you can use the latest version. If you are on the 1.8 protocol hack please download version 1.1 from here:

    If you're a server owner:
    The ActionBarAPI may be required in a plugin which has directed you to this page, download the plugin and put it in your 'plugins' directory and boom, you're good to go!

    If you're a developer:
    The ActionBarAPI is simple and easy to use, first download and import the plugin into your project.

    You will want to import it as a dependency into your plugin.yml just so no errors occur.

    To call the API it's as simple as:
    Code (Text):
    ActionBarAPI.sendActionBar(player,"Action Bar Message");
    There are other methods such as a method to send the Action Bar for a specific amount of time (ticks, 20 = 1 second):
    Code (Text):
    ActionBarAPI.sendActionBar(player,"Action Bar Message", duration);
    There is also now an event that you can use to hook in to other plugins using ActionBarAPI & BountifulAPI. This event is called "ActionBarMessageEvent"

    GitHub Repo (Source):

    Note: Old versions of the plugin are no longer supported in any way.

    Please submit bugs, questions, issues and suggestions on GitHub Do not PM me, I will not respond. Please check GitHub issues for solutions first and read the full information on this page..

    This makes it so much easier to display messages above the hotbar than if you had to use NMS or ProtocolLib to send packets.

    Amazing API, absolutely love it. I love the fact that you can use an ActionBar for almost everything. For that I give it a 5 out of 5, and would definitely recommend! Keep up the good work Connor.
