  1. Hi i would like to know if its possible to use getDataFolder() outside of the extended JavaPlugin class, if so how?
  2. Using the variable of your class JavaPlugin

  3. I always make a static variable for the main class, and i can reach from everywhere. :)

    Create a way to access your main class elsewhere. The static method above is an option, but, it shouldn't be used as an access modifier

    Code (Text):
    private NameOfMainClass plugin;

    public NameOfCurrentClass(NameOfMainClass plugin) {
      this.plugin = plugin
