    NOTICE: This plugin has been replaced by Core only install if another plugin requires it.

    This resource is designed at making chat gui plugins easy to create and use. I made it for my chat gui plugins, but anybody can use it.

    Tested on 1.8.8 and 1.7.10 cauldron works on both.

    Source code

    Example code with explinations:

    Code (Text):
    import me.dablakbandit.chatapi.api.jsonformatter.JSONFormatter;
    import me.dablakbandit.chatapi.api.jsonformatter.hover.ShowTextEvent;
    import me.dablakbandit.chatapi.packetlistener.PacketListener;
    import net.md_5.bungee.api.ChatColor;

    import org.bukkit.entity.Player;

    public class Example{

        // Firstly i recommend creating a method to send the JSONFormatter
        protected void send(JSONFormatter jf, Player player){
            // This allows the packets to go through
            PacketListener.getInstance().allow(player, jf.getSize());
            // This sends the packets

        // Another good method to have is one that stops chat packets from being
        // sent to the player
        protected void pause(Player player){

        // And also one that restores the players chat after they have finished with
        // the gui
        protected void play(Player player){
            // This will resend the last 100 chat packets to player, if there is
            // only 50 to send,
            // then it will first send 50 blank packets

        // Basic send method
        public void send(Player player){
            // Whether newlines are enabled or not
            // Some minecraft version do not support new lines "\n"
            // It is best to have a setting in the config file to enable/disable this
            boolean newlines = false;
            JSONFormatter jf = new JSONFormatter(newlines);
            // Append a string
            // Some nice header
            // This adds a new line
            jf.append(" ");
            // Append a message with a click event
            // A click event is what happens when the player clicks it in their chat
            // There is RunCommandEvent or SuggestCommandEvent
            jf.appendClick(ChatColor.GREEN + "< Back", new RunCommandEvent("<command>" + " back"));
            jf.append(" " + ChatColor.RED + "Unsupported file");
            // There is also a hover event
            // There is ShowAchievementEvent, ShowItemEvent and ShowTextEvent
            jf.appendHover("Example", new ShowTextEvent("Hover"));
            // Resets just chat colors
            // Resets modifiers (italic, bold etc;)
            // Resets both, calling .newLine also resets all
            // Adds 15 blank lines
            // The Chat GUI can only be 20 lines high and you want it to be flush as to look nice
            // Calls the send method created earlier
            send(jf, player);
            // The JSONFormatter allows chaining which allows for very compact code
            .append(" ").appendClick(ChatColor.GREEN + "< Back", new RunCommandEvent("<command>" + " back")).newLine().newLine()
            .append(" " + ChatColor.RED + "Unsupported file")

    This produces something like:
