    iChat 2.x - Custom Chat Formatting
    Version: 2.4.4
    CraftBukkit: 1337

    Plugin Support:
    PermissionsBukkit
    bPermissions
    Permissions 2.x
    Permissions 3.x

    If you are requesting help, post your entire server log (From the time it opens, until somebody talks), your entire Permission config file (As well as what it's named), and iChat config files. This information is REQUIRED for me to help you.
    http://pastebin.com/ <-- Post configs there when asking for help

    =============
    Description
    =============
    Custom chat formatting.
    Based on the idea of iChat v1.5 by Nijikokun.
    Includes code and concepts from mChat by MiracleM4n <https://github.com/MiracleM4n/mChat/>

    Before downloading: iChat 2.4.x has quite a few changes over the 2.3.x branches. All permissions plugins are handled in one plugin, and they all operate in relatively the same way now. This means you WILL need to redo your configs.
    Download (Direct JAR): http://thedgtl.net/bukkit/iChat.jar
    Source: https://github.com/TheDgtl/iChat

    =============
    Features
    =============
    Supports Permissions (Both 2.0 and 2.1), and SuperPerms handlers (PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions, and PermissionsEx).
    Allows you to specify a prefix/suffix/variable for users and groups on a per-world or global basis.
    A user-specific prefix/suffix/variable will take priority over a group prefix/suffix/variable, a world-based prefix/suffix/variable will take priority over a global prefix/suffix/variable.
    Unlimited amount of custom variables for use in chat format.
    Colors are supported in all parts of the formatting and chat text.
    Usable health bar and health amount in the formatting.
    Support for formatting of /me

    =============
    Formatting
    =============
    Message formatting is defined in the file plugins/iChat/config.yml
    The message formats can contain characters, color codes, and variables.
    To use colors use the standard Minecraft color codes found here: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Classic_Server_Protocol#Color_Codes

    Available variables:
    +prefix - The prefix for this user, or this users group if they don't have one defined.
    +suffix - The suffix for this user, or this users group if they don't have one defined.
    +name - The users name
    +displayname - The users display name (Set by plugins such as Towny)
    +iname - The iChat formatted player name (Defined by iname-format)
    +group - The users group
    +healthbar - A visual health bar for this user
    +health - The users current health value (Between 0 and 20)
    +message - The message the player typed
    +world - What world the player is currently in
    +time - Timestamp, configurable in config.yml. Uses the format for SimpleDateFormat - http://bit.ly/dscw40

    Example (Default):
    Code:
    iname-format: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname'
    message-format: '+iname: +message'
    me-format: '* +name +message'
    date-format: 'HH:mm:ss'
    handle-me: true
    Example date-format (Default):
    date-format: 'HH:mm:ss'

    As of iChat 2.4.0 there have been a few changes in the way variables and groups are handled.

    ==========
    Groups
    ==========
    As of iChat 2.4.3 native groups are supported in Permissions 2.x/3.x, PermissionsBukkit, bPermissions, and PermissionsEx.

    ==========
    Variables
    ==========
    Variables are now defined in variables.yml in the iChat directory. This includes prefixes, suffixes, and custom variables.
    You can define an unlimited number of custom variables for groups and users, if these variables contain the static variables such as +prefix,
    +suffix, +health, etc then those variables will be replaced with their respective values.
    If a variable does not exist then it will be replaced with a blank string.

    As of iChat 2.4.4 you can now specify world-specific variables. To specify a per-world group or user variable (Prefix, suffix, or variable) you just specify it under the world as shown in the 'world' example in the default variables.yml below. Anything specified in the parent 'users' or 'groups' nodes will be considered global for all worlds.

    Default variables.yml:
    ---------------------
    Code:
    # iChat Variable Config
    # This is now the only method for defining variables
    users:
        Drakia:
            prefix: '&e'
    groups:
        Admin:
            prefix: '&c'
            suffix: ''
        Default:
            prefix: ''
            suffix: ''
    world:
      users:
        Drakia:
          prefix: '&a'
    Default config.yml:
    ---------------------
    Code:
    handle-me: true
    date-format: HH:mm:ss
    message-format: '+iname: +message'
    me-format: '* +name +message'
    iname-format: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname'
    =============
    Examples
    =============
    To make a group colored:
    variables.yml:
    Code:
    groups:
        Default:
            prefix: '&4'
            suffix: ''
    config.yml:
    Code:
    message-format: '[+prefix+group&f] +name: +message'
    To make a single username colored:
    variables.yml:
    Code:
    users:
        Drakia:
            prefix: ''
            suffix: '&1'
    Config:
    Code:
    message-format: '[+prefix+group&f] +suffix+name&f: +message'
    As you can see, suffixes and prefixes can be used anywhere, in any combination. In this example we use prefix as a method for coloring group names, while suffix is used to color individual users. On our server we have prefixes such as "&f[&2Mod&f] " so that we can have custom tags per group instead of just the groups name. There is no end to the combination of things you can do, please TRY things before you come asking for someone else to do it for you. There are too many combinations of things for me to answer every question about how to color specific things.
    I will not be offering answers to questions such as "How do I color names?" or really anything else to do with specifics of formatting. It's pretty straightforward what you can do, and if you can't take the time to experiment then I'm not going to take the time to answer your questions.

    =============
    Configuration
    =============
    iname-format - The format used for +iname (Default: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname')
    message-format - The format used for basic chat (Default: '+iname: +message')
    date-format - The format used for +date (Default: 'HH:mm:ss')
    me-format - The format used for /me commands (Default: '* +name +message')
    handle-me - Whether to handle /me commands (Default: true)

    =============
    Permissions
    =============
    ichat.color - Allow this group/user to use color in their chat messages.
    ichat.reload - Allow this group/user to use "/ichat reload"

    =============
    Commands
    =============
    /ichat reload - Reload the iChat config file

    =============
    F.A.Q.
    =============
    Q) Why is my custom message format not working? I just get the default output. Or output with no variables filled in.
    A) If you're using Permissions 2.1, make sure your Permissions config file is named "{worldname}.yml" where {worldname} is the name of your world. If you're using Permissions 2.0, make sure your Permissions config is named config.yml

    Q) How do I set the brackets color to the same as the group?
    A) Normally you have the brackets in the message-format variable, but you can just as easily move them into prefix/suffix and that way they can be per-group colored!

    Q) Why is my entire string colored? I just put a color code beside +name!
    A) A color code will persists until another color code is encountered, or the end of the line is reached. To change the line back to white use &f after the variable/string you want colored.

    Q) Why are my OPs names red?
    A) Essentials has this functionality built in. Change "ops-name-color" to 'none' in your Essentials config file.

    Q) Why does {PluginX} not work with iChat?
    A) There's a good chance it does, but you need to use +displayname instead of +name.

    Q) Why does Towny not work with iChat?
    A) iChat no longer uses %1$s for the player name, it uses player.getName() and player.getDisplayName(), until such a time that Towny is updated to use the proper method of setting a players name (Set their displayName) it will not work with iChat.

    Alright, I give up:
    I've tried so many combinations of everything trying to get something like: '[Owner] Lama_0: Hello!' But alas, nothing works... What would I put under
    users:
    Lama_0:
    prefix: ??????
    '??????' = What should I put here to make said example appear when I want to chat? and have that bracketed prefix 'Owner' (in red text) to appear whenever I chat?

    Post your config.yml and variables.yml so that other people can see what you've done - Ctrl+A, then use the CODE function

    This is the last thing I tried... just to see if something happened... of which nothing did:
    # iChat Variable Config
    # This is now the only method for defining variables
    users:
    Lama_0:
    prefix: '[&2Owner&c] Lama_0'

    groups:
    admin:
    name: Owner
    prefix: '&c'
    suffix: ''
    default:
    name: Guest
    prefix: ''
    suffix: ''


    I would however like to note that my name itself is red, but this is by default I hear. But it just looks like: <Lama_0>: Hello! but with no prefix. And on another note! No matter what I type in in the config, no prefix, or any change I can see is visible, obviously. just stays like ^

    handle-me: true
    date-format: HH:mm:ss
    message-format: '+iname: +message'
    me-format: '* +name +message'
    iname-format: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname'


    Do I have to change this? I find the tutorial on this webpage extremely confusing :(

    I don't know whether 'name:' is a variable you can set under groups - Are your variable trees indented? Try using the code function in the message section, the one with the {}# icon near the tree
    .
    Try putting the 'name:' variable into prefix: (prefix: '&cOwner') '&c' is the colour being set, there's a link at the top for a list of available colours - Which permissions plugin are you using?
    .
    It should have atleast said '[] lama_o: Hello!'

    Lama_0

    Yes, everything is tabbed, just it didn't paste like that... and 'name:' was in there originally.
    I will try to do as you said. I am using bPermissions, which I recall is supported. :)

    Just tried what Phedg1 said (after prefix: (prefix: '&cOwner')) and nothing worked... If I misunderstood what you meant, I am deeply sorry. :\ Thanks for putting effort in to help though :)
    @DgtlDrake
    Ahhh, yea... that may be the problem :) Lemme try disabling it, or even deleting it.

    Ok, first of all, in your iname-format: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname' you state you want the +group and +suffix varaibles: the +group variable is registering as the word 'default' and the +suffix variable hasn't been set, so you don't neet it there, leave it as iname-format: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname' - Now, as you've got a set of brackets in iname-format, you don't need them in the prefix as well. One set of brakets between the two should do what you're looking for, and you don't need to write Lama_0, as +name is doing that too- Do that then repost your variables and config files so we can see how you've done
    .
    iname-format: '[+prefix+group+suffix&f] +displayname
    groups:
    Admin:​
    name: 'Owner'
    suffix: ''
    prefix: '&c'​
    Default:​
    name: 'Guest'
    suffix: ''
    prefix: ''​
    users:
    Lama_0:
    prefix: '[&2&cOwner&c] Lama_0'

    I have a problem with prefixes. I have the latest version of PermissionsBukkit and SuperpermsBridge.

    My config.yml:
    Code:
    handle-me: true
    date-format: HH:mm:ss
    message-format: '+prefix+name: &f+message'
    me-format: '&f[&2Handel&f] +name: +message'

    What do you want it so read like, and what is it saying when you talk? Also, try this:
    .
    message-format: '+iname+prefix+name: &f+message'
    me-format: '&f[&2Handel&f] +name: +message'
    iname-format: '+prefix+displayname'
    .
    Also, paste your server log

    Whoa - Drakia's been totaly purged - It's like he never existed, give's me the shivers - Thought Police, Nineteen-Eighty-Four, anyone?
    .
    On another note, I think he said that I could use one group when trying to set a prefix for a world, anyone know how to do it?
    Code:
    Instead of:
    worlds:
      groups:
        group1:
          prefix: 'a'
        group2:
          prefix: 'a'
        ect:
          prefix: 'a'
    I think he meant:
    worlds:
      groups:
        one.all.inclusive.group:
          prefix: 'a'
    Any help?
    Edit: Oh, and I still get emails whenever Drakia comments, but clicking the link takes you to a bukkit page saying error; The post no longer exists.... - Just an FYI Drakia

    How can I delete the [] to a group if it doesn't have prefix?

    Put the brackets IN the prefix variable:
    .
    iname-format: '[+prefix&f] +displayname
    groups:
    Admin:​
    Prefix: '[&cOwner&f]'​

    @aPunch Why not just merge it with mChat?

    Go right ahead! I'll go back to coding Spout-related nonsense.

    What is a needed feature in iChat that mChat doesnt have. (Everyone who uses iChat please answer this)

    I'm a big fan of iChat, and I'd love to see some Text wrapping and (I don't know if this is possible on as a server-side plugin) scroll bar to view chat history - Also, use of the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V functions wouldn't go amiss either

    Sorry I believe my post was misconstrued. As @Drakia is no longer with this community and I am the plugin developer of mChat (A plugin which iChat has pulled code from) I was wondering what are needed features that iChat currently has that mChat doesnt and that people would like mChat to include. (I will work on Text Wrap)

    What's stopping @MiracleM4n @Drakia @dralletje for compliling and making one MONSTER of a chat plugin? (You know, apart from the ban situation) - Might even be able to send it to @Notch and get it part of the vanilla server

    I believe the response to this is that everyone like to take a plugin, fork it change a few small things, than refactor it to their own name. This is how mChat started but expanded quite a bit from there. It now only includes like 20 lines of code from iChat. (Of which there is no way to better implement it). I dont know why people dont just put pull requests into a plugin they like with the features they want instead of going through the trouble of making their own plugin that has minimal difference from the parent plugin. I would be more than happy to merge with @dralletje but I would like to keep the mChat namespace, which may or may not be what @dralletje wants as he has done quite a bit of work on his plugin himself just like I have to mChat.

    I much prefer to submit request as I can't code in java and I love to get input back from the dev - I reckon you 3 are the biggest players on the chat scene and each has it's own niche - You didn't state your opinion of working with @Drakia, so I doubt that's a go there- As for the naming, why not another name, like 'MiracleChat', and just cite mChat and the rest under authors. This could be the birth of the most indesputably all-encompassing chat plugin on bukkit.

    @Drakia has pulled some code into iChat from mChat. I would be glad to work with him if he is willing to. Ill try to contact him to see if he would like this.

    As people keep attempting to help Drakia bypass the bans placed on him, they leave us no choice but to lock his threads. We strongly suggest everyone look for a better alternative to this plugin as it is no longer supported since the developer has been banned for continuously insulting my staff and breaking several of the community's rules. Anyone helping Drakia bypass any bans will be dealt with.
