Stories o’ Sponge. Nothin’ to see here me hearties, no Treasure maps. Go away home ye lubbers

Here Be The Start Of It All

Welcome to SpongeDocs, the official documentation for the open-source Sponge project.

The SpongeAPI is your all new plugin API for Minecraft. You can run it on a plain vanilla server (as SpongeVanilla) or on your fully modded MinecraftForge server (as SpongeForge). Grab your copy here.

Not sure what you’re looking for? Try our About t’ Sponge Project section, which contains a short Introduction, our Questioning and Interrogation and an article about The Structure of the Sponge Project.

Server owners should read our tips and instructions in Creating a Server on how to install, run and maintain a Sponge based server.

The Sponge project has several main components. Learn more about the project structure here or visit their repositories on GitHub:

SpongeForge | SpongeVanilla | SpongeAPI | SpongeDocs | SpongeHome | Mixin | Ore

Note

Sponge development is ongoing. Beta and Experimental builds of both SpongeForge and SpongeVanilla are currently available for download.
