    Abandoned - functionality to be included in the Help plugin itself

    AutoHelp - Support plugin for Help
    Version: 0.2

    This plugin is a helper for Help. It populates the help list by creating a category for each active plugin. Information about the plugins and their commands are extracted from their respective plugin.yml information files that reside in the plugin jars.
    If there is no information in the plugin.yml there won't be any help.

    • Auto-populates Help
    • Zero configuration
    Download AutoHelp
    Source Code

    Version 0.2
    • Reads command permissions
    Version 0.1
    • Initial release

    I haven't had any problems, but I just installed iConomy, also Iconomychestshop. It looks like iconomychestshop breaks autohelp. It goes back to the default limited help.

    Is there any way to set different groups so they can only see the plugins relevant to them?

    *Bump* Updated to version 0.2

    AutoHelp now reads command permissions and passes them on to Help if they exist.

    I will not implement logging into a separate log file because I'm not going to produce workarounds for flaws in hosting. No offense intended, I don't know brohoster, but if they refuse to let you see the log files you might want consider moving to a hoster who does.

    Also I'm not going to any kind of groups because this would (a) be beyond the scope of what AutoHelp is intended to do and (b) not even necessary if the plugin descriptions would contain permission information for commands. Of course I realize this might not be feasible at this point with different permission systems in place. I'd probably have to start implementations for every currently used permission system and throw away that code once bukkit comes with one unified and mandatory system. Again, far beyond what AutoHelp is intended to do and would also require heavy configuration, killing the zero-config idea.

    Great plugin.
    Please add a config file where you can specify plugins to skip. This way, we can add plugins that mess up with autohelp (quite a few btw..)

    Oh dear, that's the first time I heard about that. I'm running quite a few plugins myself without any problems. Which plugins cause trouble?
    And regarding the blacklist, that is a sensible idea. I put it on my todo list.

    I got stacktraces when using xWarp, creaturebox and a few more I can't remember at the moment.
    These only occur when using AutoHelp aswell.

    AutoHelp doesn't specifically use Permissions, it just reads the bare Permissions Strings from the plugin.yml files and passes them on to Help. You are obviously using Permissions 3 and as far as I know Help 2.4.1 doesn't support Permissions 3. I think this is what causes your trouble.

    I think you're right, I renamed Permissions and MyHome, seems to fix all of this for me.
    Thanks. Glad you can keep your plugin config free :)

    I'm not quite sure what causes the illegal access errors with Help and Permissions 3. I built a version of Help for testing against Permissions 3 and it works just fine. Got rid of Group Manager support though.

    I might just have to update, but its running fine now.

    could you add support for the alias property for commands inside the plugin.yml? (and I think bukkit.yml in the main folder has now also an alias property with a newer bukkit build too~)

    Sure, I will see how this works and come up with something. :)

    Oh i love this Plugin! It is really good because it doesnt just list all commands it binds it to the plugins! Great work!

    Help v3 support would be lovely.

    Um, this plugin complements Help v3; it basically provides help for plugins that don't link with Help themselves.

    Ah, I must of did something wrong, sorry about that. In the end, I just uninstalled it and made my own ExtraHelp files.

    Can we get this to write the help stuff to .ymls in an AutoHelp directory? That way we can use them as a base for editing custom ExtraHelps? Such as adding in permission nodes to plugins that don't list them.

    Has this plugin died? :(

    No. I just haven't updated it yet. Still waiting for a new usable Minecraft/Bukkit version. My hopes rest with 1.8.

    Pretty sure it should work even if it hasn't officially been updated; I don't think it uses anything that would ever be likely to break.
