    UtilAPI v2.1.0
    The UtilAPI is an API to simplify the development of spigot plugins. It is very helpful for beginners, but there are also some functions that can help advanced developers.

    To use the API, the .jar file must be added as a library. I will try to publish a maven repo in the future.


    Functions

    MySQL
    The UtilAPI provides a very simple way to establish and use an SQL connection. First, an instance of the SQL class must be created. In addition, an SQlConfig is needed to store and retrieve the login data for the database.

    Example:

    Code (Java):
    SQLConfig cfg = new SQLConfig("plugins//yourProject", "mysql.yml");    // creates a new SQL config
    SQL sql = new SQL(cfg.readData());    // creates a new instance of the SQL class
    sql.connect    // connects to the db
    UUID Fetcher
    With the UUIDFetcher, UUIDs can be converted into player names and vice versa.

    Code (Java):
    UUID uuid = UUIDFetcher.getUUID(player.getName()); // Returns the UUID of the selected player

    Config
    The Custom config makes it possible to create new configs very quickly and easily.


    Code (Java):
    Config cfg = new Config("path//to//the", "file.name");

    cfg.write("is.chris.cool", true);

    The API offers many more possibilities, these are just a few examples. More detailed documentation is available on the GitHUb repo.
