    You really don't want to do that. Who knows what else may have been added to the JAR?

    I keep telling myself someday I wanna get the Spigot code and modify it to broadcast in the chat every 5 minutes saying something like "This is just an annoyance. But this could be a virus instead - this is why you do not download precompiled Spigot! Click here to download BuildTools" then when ppl ask for the Spigot JAR, give them that to prove a point lol

  5. I have a question. Why do you need to use build tools to get the jar? Like why can't spigot don't just put out the jar to download?

  7. you could compare the hashes between them

    Wouldn't that require you to have the correct BuildTools jar in order to be able to compare?
    Then why would you even bother downloading pre-compiled jars elsewhere if you already have the correct one..?
     
  9. people can post the correct hashes and compare
    or to determine whether a source is trustworthy

    If someone isn't capable of figuring out how to compile the jar via BuildTools they sure as hell won't know how to compare hashes lol. ;)

    That seems like more hassle than just building the JAR lol.

    It is stupid simple to use BuildTools. The only effort is in the initial installation of the Git software, and that is not hard at all.

    Actually, I just remembered that I made a video showing how to do it from scratch (i.e. including the installation of Git)
