  1. Hello forums,

    So, im making a Greylist plugin. I have all the code for allowing/disallowing players to build and join, but i want a file named: "greylist.txt", in that file, i want the names of all the people that are greylisted. Then, when they join, if there name is on the list, they can join and build, if it isnt, they cant.

    Not sure if this was clear enough, but i need an answer ASAP

    1. public FileConfiguration getConfig(String player){ // returns a configuration by string (player name) used for grabbing offline player configs
    2. FileConfiguration config;
    3. File file = new File(instance.getDataFolder()+"\\players\\"+player+".yml");
    4. if(file.exists()){
    5. config = YamlConfiguration.loadConfiguration(file);
    6. } else {
    7. config = null;
    8. }
    9. return config;
    10. }

    This is my custom configuration GETTER in one of my plugins (basically an essentials clone but specifically for my server)

    if you dont mind working with Yaml, change the code around, specifically line 3, where it says "instance.getDataFolder()+"\\players\\"+player+".yml"" to say "instance.getDataFold()+"\\greylist.yml"
  3. I looked at VoxelSniper's source, and found a scanner for the 'snipers.txt' file. How would i do it like that?

    Not sure. Embarrassingly enough, ive only been a developer since november, and ive got niche experience with just java and bukkit, so i havnt really explored much outside the bukkit api :s
  5. Ill just keep digging in VS then :p

    2. HashSet<String>graylist = new HashSet<String>();
    4. public void loadGrayList(){
    5. File f = new File(instance.getDataFolder()+"\\graylist.yml");
    6. Scanner s = new Scanner(f);
    7. while(s.hasNext()){
    8. graylist.add(s.next());
    9. }
    10. }
    12. public boolean isOnGrayList(Player p){
    13. if(grayList.contains(p.getName()){
    14. return true;
    15. }
    16. return false;
    17. }

    I would personally recommend using a YAML file, because you can have other options etc in it, plus it's 100% simpler. Still.. this sounds like an interesting plugin, can't wait to see it!
  12. Should be done in the next week ;)
