    A very simple and tiny chat formatting plugin using Vault.

    What's the point?

    This plugin formats the chat, using one template format, and has placeholders for a players prefix/suffix which can be used in the template. Nothing more, nothing less.

    If you want anything more than this, then I've suggested some alternatives you can try below.

    Why bother creating something so basic when there are obviously better plugins out there?

    Some people just want something simple - EssentialsChat has always been my go-to, but some people don't want the whole of Essentials on their server.

    How do I use it?

    Add it to your plugins folder, restart your server, and the config file will be generated automatically in /plugins/VaultChatFormatter.

    Why does it depend on Vault?

    Vault is an API (a utility) which allows plugins (like this one) to pull permissions and chat data from a variety of sources without depending on and hooking with each individual source.

    You can download Vault from its official download pages below:
    In order to set prefixes (and use this plugin), you also need a permissions plugin which implements the Vault Chat API. I've listed some popular choices below - but most permissions plugins are supported.

    This plugin doesn't do enough, I want more.
    Ok, try these:
    Can I see the source code?

    Is this plugin affiliated with or endorsed by the Vault project?

    No - it's not. It is named VaultChatFormatter because it uses Vault to retrieve prefix & suffix data.

    Can you add x feature?

    This works wonderfully on my 1.18.1 Server without having to add all of essentials! Wish i could give it more stars. Only wanted sethome, spawn and tpa but not all of Essentials and this allows me to add prefixes properly without all the bloat!

    I use this on every server I run. SO simple and useful. If only it did private messages too, without me having to rewrite it, that is ;D

    Great plugin! I've been using this plugin for a long time and I think it's much better than other chat plugins! My current server is 1.16.4, but it is the best plugin that works perfectly! High praise once again! Thank you very much for making such a great plugin :) I am a Korean user, and using Google Translate it might look a little weird.

    Hello, really nice and simple plugin ! The single thing which could be really cool is adding PAPI to it to allow to use vault placeholders :p
