Configuring Plugins

Configuration files allow plugins to store data, as well as allow server administrators to easily take control over specific portions of a plugin, if you so choose to let them. Sponge uses Configurate to allow you to easily manipulate configuration files. These pages will explain how to utilize Configurate in order to use configuration files to full advantage.

Tip

See the official Configurate wiki to gain more in-depth information about working with its components.

Notitie

Sponge makes use of the HOCON configuration format, a superset of JSON, as the default format for saving configuration files. The rest of this guide will assume you are using HOCON as well. See Introductie voor HOCON more for information regarding the HOCON format. Working with different formats is made relatively similar by the Configurate system, so it should not pose too much of an issue if you use an alternate format instead.

Snelle Start

Creating a Default Plugin Configuration

Plugins die gebruiken maken van de Sponge API hebben de optie om een of meerdere configuratiebestanden te gebruiken. Configuratiebestanden laat plugins toe om gegevens op te slaan en om server administrators de mogelijkheid te geven om de plugin opties aan te passen.

Je Standaard Plugin Configuratie Verkrijgen

The Sponge API offers the use of the DefaultConfig annotation on a field or setter method with the type Path to get the default configuration file for your plugin.

De @DefaultConfig annotatie vereist een sharedRoot boolean. Als de sharedRoot op true gezet wordt, zal het teruggeven pad in een gedeelde configuratie map zijn. In dit geval zal het configuratiebestand van jouw plugin jouw_plugin_id.conf zijn.

Tip

See Hoofdklasse uw plugin for information on configuring your plugin ID.

If you set sharedRoot to false, the returned pathname will refer to a file named {pluginname}.conf in a directory specific to your plugin.

Als je onzeker bent over de waarde van sharedRoot, overweeg dan het volgende:

  • Als je van plan bent om meerdere configuratiebestanden (complexere plugins) te hebben in de toekomst, zet de waarde dan op false.
  • Als je van plan bent om een enkel configuratiebestand (minder complexe plugins) te hebben, zet de waarde dan op true.

You can also obtain a Path instance pointing to the config directory instead of a particular file. Just have it injected using the ConfigDir annotation, either with sharedRoot set to false for a plugin specific directory or to true to get the shared configuration directory.

Notitie

While it may be possible to get a File instead of a Path, Configurate (and Sponge) recommend using Path.

Voorbeeld - Veld gebruikt @DefaultConfig

import java.nio.file.Path;
import com.google.inject.Inject;
import org.spongepowered.api.config.ConfigDir;
import org.spongepowered.api.config.DefaultConfig;
import ninja.leaping.configurate.commented.CommentedConfigurationNode;
import ninja.leaping.configurate.loader.ConfigurationLoader;

@Inject
@DefaultConfig(sharedRoot = true)
private Path defaultConfig;

@Inject
@DefaultConfig(sharedRoot = true)
private ConfigurationLoader<CommentedConfigurationNode> configManager;

@Inject
@ConfigDir(sharedRoot = false)
private Path privateConfigDir;

Waarschuwing

When your plugin is running for the first time, returned pathnames for configuration files and directories may not yet exist. If you delegate all reading / writing of files to Configurate, you do not need to worry about non-existant paths as the library will handle them appropriately.

Notitie

The use of YAML format (http://yaml.org/spec/1.1/) is also supported, but the preferred config format for Sponge plugins is HOCON. Conversion from YAML to HOCON can be automated by using a YAMLConfigurationLoader to load the old config and then saving it using a HoconConfigurationLoader.
