    Hello Members of the Bukkit Forums, I thought I'd make this little tutorial because I've been getting a lot of questions lately on how to make plugins, let's get started!

    P.S. Sorry to the Bukkit Team and Moderators, I didn't exactly know where to post this tutorial at so I'd figured I'd put it in the location that people go to in order to request plugins. (If this isn't the right location could you please move this thread?)

    You will need these things:

    • A basic understanding of Java.
    • A Java IDE such as Eclipse or Netbeans. (I prefer Eclipse, the link will be below)
    • A brain.
    Eclipse can be found here: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-ide-java-developers/keplerr

    Learning Basic Java:
    I would personally recommend TheNewBoston and DesignsbyZephyr.

    TheNewBoston's channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/thenewboston
    DesignsbyZephyr's channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/DesignsbyZephyr

    They both have basic Java development series so you can go check them out!

    If you don't want to watch a video you can also learn Java by reading it on Oracles website
    Link here: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/index.html

    (I learned Java on my own by reading the tutorials on Oracles website and by messing around with the Minecraft Client and Plugins)

    Learning To Create Bukkit Plugins:
    So far I've only been able to find 1 Bukkit Plugin development series by TheBCBroz on YouTube, his Bukkit Plugin development series is about 60 videos so you'll have more than enough to learn the basics!

    TheBCBroz channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheBCBroz

    Good luck and happy coding! ;)

    I'd think this would belong in the Plugin Development section. ;)

    Intellij Is kind of advanced so I left that out of this tutorial for Beginners. But if you prefer that you can certainly use it.
  12. Commander9292 Lol! I already know how to make plugin, I was just wondering why you didn't add intellij to the ide list, since intellij is the best ide.

    CaptainBern Lol you're right it is, but I wouldn't recommend it for beginners!
  14. Commander9292 Yeah they should start with eclipse and after 1 week switch over to intellij and then never switch again. :p
