    I was looking to get into plugin development, but the numerous references I've found on the wiki to repo.bukkit.org yield a 521 error. I noticed this yesterday and it's still the case and I haven't been able to find information about it on this forum.

    Am I entirely misguided to attempt to pull the Bukkit API from repo.bukkit.org? If so, what is the new Maven repository URL?

    Thanks.

    @gdea73 There is no new maven repo.
    The old one has been taken down since the last file was for 1.7.10 and not being used anymore.

    You can use the Spigot maven repository though.
    <repository>
    <id>spigot-repo</id>
    <url>https://hub.spigotmc.org/nexus/content/repositories/snapshots/</url>
    </repository>

    <dependency>
    <groupId>org.bukkit</groupId>
    <artifactId>bukkit</artifactId>
    <version>1.10.2-R0.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
    <type>jar</type>
    <scope>provided</scope>
    </dependency>

    Alright, thanks, I was thinking I'd just build against Spigot since that's what I'm running anyway. Is there any way that I can still build against Bukkit for better compatibility? That is to ask, is there an alternative to the Maven repository or would I just compile with the latest API jar as a dependency?

    What @Lolmewn showed you is actually using the bukkit repository, since Spigot has unofficially taken over development of Bukkit since a DMCA takedown in 2014.

    And yes, you can just compile with Bukkit.jar or CraftBukkit.jar as a dependency.

    Thanks! I haven't had a Bukkit server running regularly since 2012, so I'd missed a lot of this news, namely Spigot being more than just a fork.

    Spigot is just a fork, but a fork with versions compatible for the latest versions of MC :p
    There are a couple of other forks out there but none of them as popular as Spigot.
    If you want to grab just bukkit, either use the Maven dependency I shared above or build it yourself using Spigot's BuildTools.

    Understood; pulled down Bukkit from that Maven repository and all is well. Thanks all for your input.

    @AlvinB @Lolmewn spigot is not an official or legal developer of Bukkit and should not be confused with actual Bukkit by any means.

    repo.bukkit.org SHOULD have been still online, but Curse seems to have forgotten to keep it up (like countless other Bukkit services...).

    I recommend getting a download for the Bukkit API (who isnt part of the DMCA and is fine to download) and compile based on that.

    And who says that thet should then?
    You seem to know a lot about what to do and what not without being staff anymore.
    They haven't forgotten it.
    They turned it off after we talked about it.

    @timtower I know a lot on what to do because i was part of the bukkit team, i know what services existed and why they ran, and that repo.bukkit.org is one of the more important services.

    Why exactly you 'talked them into shutting it off'? The service was not made or maintained by you, and is very important to Bukkit. Again, like your modifications to the bukkit FAQ, it shows lack of understanding and care to the project and desire to advertise unofficial projects. Why not moderate the forums of these unofficial projects?

    @Necrodoom_V2 Then say so.
    Ask if it can be brought online then.

    And I didn't start the conversation, @Kaelten did.

    And you say that I should stop moderating this dying project. Yet you come here every single day to find stuff that isn't to your likings. Heck, you even got a new account for it after you got rid of your old one.
    You claim stuff being unsupported, by who? You? Then don't support it.
    The current staff team made a couple calls, you aren't in that team, so please stop acting like it.

    @timtower I come here to inform people of the state of the bukkit project, as i explained you in a PM you sent me an year ago, since neither Mojang or Curse seem to have much interest. I support people who use the official project, as i do on the IRC channels. I also encourage people toward legal projects, as misleading people to download files knowingly shadingly (Seeing the DMCA filed and the safe-haven host that ensued) is not ok, and should not be ok on the official Bukkit forums.

    Did you forget that Mojang essentially kicked out Evilseph using Curse claiming their ownership of the project, even though this was cross checked and found to be false? Swiping the Bukkit team under the rug, who actually worked on this project for years and saying that they dont get to decide on their own project is pretty much disgusting. Curse was on an agreement with the Bukkit team to maintain Bukkit.org, not with Mojang.

    I still think a Moderator has more of a say in what's supported than you, though.
