Build a customized Spigot version

  1. I'm currently trying to make my little own changes to a Spigot version using BuildTools. But I'm not sure how to save my changes an recompile it again (BuildTools generates so many files xD).

    I was thinking about trying to move all the source code generated by BuildTools to a project in Eclipse, Netbeans or whatever Java IDE and then compile it again, but I don't know if it's possible.

    So, my question is, how can I move all this files to a project in any IDE? And, if it's possible, what script or what I have to do to recompile it again??
     
  2. Well, for developing it's probably better to do everything BuildTools does yourself:

    - Set up git and clone spigot from hub.spigot.org
    - Make changes
    - Set up maven to build your spigot version

    However, even if you change the files created by BuildTools maven should be the way to build the project.

  3. The point is that I don't know much about using and configuring Maven. Could you explain briefly what I have to do?
