    Create advanced ItemStacks in one line!


    ItemBuilder is an API class with which you can build advanced ItemStacks in just one line. Supported features contain ItemMeta manipulation and NBT tags, even Item- & SkullMetas!


    • Class, not an actual jar. You can directly implement this API in your plugin's source code.
    • Item- & SkullMeta supported.
    • NBT Tags supported (Deprecated in v1.8.3) .
    • Extra Methods like glow() implemented.
    • Highly customizeable.
    • JSON and config reading / writing.


    1. Create an instance of the ItemBuilder
      Code (Java):
      ItemBuilder builder = new ItemBuilder(Material.GLOWSTONE)
    2. Set the metas you want, for example
      Code (Java):
      builder.setDisplayname("§6Glowy Glowstone");
    3. (Optional) Access the "Unsafe" class using
      Code (Java):
      and set/get NBT Tags:
      Code (Java):
      builder.unsafe().setString("key", "value");
    4. Get back the Bukkit ItemStack with
      Code (Java):

    You can also do all of these steps in just one line:

    Code (Java):
    ItemStack item = new ItemBuilder(Material.GLOWSTONE).displayname("§6Glowy Glowstone").unsafe().setString("key", "value").builder().build();

    All in all, this is really useful, but I don't like that you hide all enchantments when doing ItemBuilder#glow() because it hides ALL enchantments and it enchants the item (which may be a bow) with infinity. If you were to fix that, I would probably use this :D

      I added your suggestion, also, why want you to make the Item have the glow effect if you enchant it, just asking. Please consider to re-review this Resource if i could help you.

    Useful tool that definitely deserves 5 stars for its ease of use. A must for an plugin developer that hates making itemstack the long way.
