    The plugin is working :D One downside, I can't seem to get it working with redstone, I tried everything (after /cmds redstone ofcourse)

    Edit: just a quick idea which I cannot try yet, do I have to put a # in front of the command when using redstone? (since it's not a player activating the command) Edit2: So apperantly redstone is working! :) I was just using a command that could only be triggered by a player.

    can you please make a plugin only with the OP/meta-characters command feature as regular commands, like not on signs.

    Found a bug:

    When you are trying to test for a permission node that starts with a letter that creates a color code, it just colors the text so it won't work.


    &alphachest.chest turns into lphachest.chest and its green.

    Anyone have a solution?
