    Source Code:
    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?

    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

    In the logs it says "New Vault Chat implementation registered: LuckPerms" but when I type in the chat the prefix doesn't show. I'm on 1.9.4 maybe this is why? Also if you're wondering, I sure I set up LuckPerms correctly, when I do /lp user <user> meta info it says I have the prefix. I even have the permissions for my group, but not the prefix. Please help!

    Well. What should i say? This plguin works as described. /reload support (no crashes), Luckperms support. Everything is just beautiful. For tab user plugin "TAB".
    Developer, thank you!
    It is still supports 1.14 and 1.15 of course.
    thanks again!

    I used this plugin with luckperms (another great plugin) and it worked great. deleted this plugin because I wanted to see how it worked, and, it failed! You could see that it was trying to do something, because everything was colored, but the prefixes didn't show! Now I'm happy with this plugin.
