    Clickable Written Book
    Pretty self-explanatory, when a player joins, the server opens a written book for the player. The written book can be configured to your liking and it also supports CLICKABLE and HOVER OVER-able text.

    can be a bit confusing at first glance but if you think about it it's pretty simple.

    • first-join-only - Whether or not the code should run only if it's player's first join, the method I used is #hasPlayedBefore() so if you wish to reset this you would have to delete playerdata from your world folders.
    • use-permission - If set to true the plugin will check if the player has "cwboj.use" permission upon joining, if the player has it, the plugin will proceed to open the book, if the player does not have the permission nothing will happen.
    • players-receive-the-book - Whether or not the players should get the book as an item so they can read it manually in the future. If set to false the next does not matter.
    • slot-for-the-book - On which slot should the book be set. Human counting, starting from 1.
    • book-title - Book's title, you may use color codes here
    • book-author - Book's author, you may use color codes here
    • book-display-name - Book's display name, you may use color codes here
    • pages-count - The amount of pages that the book is going to have, if you set it higher than the amount of pages that you actually have it will create a blank page, however if you set it lower it will create up to the number that you specified.
    • I will go through one page but the same applies to all of them, just copy paste it as I've done in config.yml.
      • line-count - Not necessarily the amount of lines, but the amount of text components (pieces), same applies as for the pages-count.
      • I will go through one line but the same applies to all of them, just copy paste it as I've done in config.yml.
        • text - The text that will show up, you may not use color codes in here, it will work but on the line break the color will disappear. However it is possible to add a color, more on that later.
        • clickable - Whether or not the text can be clickable, if you set this to false the next two do not matter.
        • click-action - The action that will be performed upon clicking the text, if you are not familiar with possibilities read this. I do not guarantee that all of them will work, I've only tested #OPEN_URL, #RUN_COMMAND, all of them should work but I am not 100% sure.
        • hoverover - Whether or not some text will appear when you hover over the text from text field. If set to false the next one does not matter.
        • hoverover-text - The text that will be displayed upon hovering over the text. You may use color codes in here.
        • text-color - The color in which text field will be displayed in. Here's the source for the available values for this field. The Color Name / Description column on the far right.
        • text-bold - Whether or not the text should be bold.

    The default config.yml will produce what you can see in the images.
    I have provided an example of how you can combine lines and how you can separate them.

    I'd like to give credit to Mystex and Optic_Fusion1 since code examples of both of them have helped me to achieve this. 2018-01-13_21.30.43.png
