    Source Code:
    Invisible item frames are normally only accessible with commands. This plugin makes them usable in survival without any commands.


    To craft, put 8 item frames in the crafting grid like this. It will create Invisible Item Frame items as the output.

    When placed, invisible item frames start out visible like a normal item frame. It's only once you place an item inside it that it becomes invisible. Removing the item will cause it to become visible again.

    You can also do this with glow item frames, to get invisible glow item frames. They work the same as invisible item frames, but the item will glow.

    Additional Info

    There are permissions that can be set for whether players can craft, place, interact (add/remove item, rotate), and break the item frames:


    Each of these has .normal and .glow child permissions that you can use to disable access to one of those specific item types.

    The config file allows customizing both items' names, lore texts, and crafting recipes.

    The recipe respects the doLimitedCrafting gamerule.

    Commands (op by default):

    /invisframes reload
    Reloads the config file.

    /invisframes give [player] [amount]
    Give a player the invisible item frame item.

    /invisframes grant [player]
    Teaches recipe to the player. This is mainly useful when gamerule doLimitedCrafting is enabled. You can also use /minecraft:recipe instead.

    Great plugin!
    When placed, it's great that hidden item frames start out visible like regular item frames.
