AdSky is a way for you, as a Minecraft server owner, to monetize your server. Currently, there are two kinds of ads : Title ads and Chat ads. Advertisers choose the type of ad they want to broadcast on your server, customize it (Title / subtitle, duration, display per day, ...), pay it according to the price you set up and voilà !
There are two parts : Server and Plugin.
The server part is a PHP + MySQL application that you install on your own web server, it is where advertisers will register and broadcast their ads. To see how to install it and the requirements, please check the Installation section of the server branch's README.
Here is a screenshot of the administration panel.
The plugin part is a simple Bukkit / Sponge plugin that is going to link up with the server part. To see how to install it and the requirements, please check the Installation section.
AdSky is built to be lightweight, but it still has a lot of features :
- Free and open-source.
- Can be run on almost any server that as PHP + MySQL installed.
- Everything is configurable.
- Android application. Coming soon !
To install the server part, please check the Installation section of the server branch's README.
To install the Bukkit plugin, you have to download the JAR and put it inside the plugins folder located in your server directory.
You need either Bukkit or Spigot. Any version above 1.8 should work.
