Reference non Bukkit plugin API without Maven

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by Justin393, Apr 2, 2016.

  1. Title basically sums it up, I'm trying to use a third party API (Has absolutely nothing to do with Bukkit/Minecraft, just helps with web requests, etc) I have it referenced in Eclipse, but how can I also install it on the server? The server won't recognize it as a plugin and will skip it unless I'm missing something?

    Any help would be appreciated!
  2. Only thing I can think to do would be shade it with maven. Not sure what you could do if you don't want to use maven.
  3. Which IDE are you using?
  4. Eclipse
  5. He's using eclipse
  6. I've never used Maven before and this entire plugin has been made without Maven. How would I go about setting it up/using it?
  7. If you don't use Maven at all, you can just export as .jar from eclipse and package the required libraries in.
  8. How would I package it? Just 7zip and drop the .jar inside of it?
