Provides chat formatting to messages sent from IRC using the SimpleIRC plugin, you need Vault for this to work as that is used to get the format from whichever permissions plugin you are using.

Bug Reports / Suggestions

If you find a bug, encounter a problem or have a suggestion, please fill out a ticket via the Tickets link above. I do not have the time to read through the comments section, any comment that fits the previous three categories will be ignored.


The plugin does not have any config or commands, it gets everything from SimpleIRC and Vault directly. Simply drop it in the plugins folder and restart the server.


The default config file will look like this

default-prefix: '<'
default-suffix: '> '
irc-prefix: '&b[IRC]#r'

default-prefix and default-suffix set the prefix and suffix that will be used when one cannot be found from Vault, these will usually be the same as for your default group but you may wish to set a different value. irc-prefix is an additional prefix that is prepended to all messages from IRC to the game.


Contributions to the project are very much welcome, if you have a feature that you want implemented and know a nice way to do it then consider forking the repo and submitting a pull request. These will be accepted as long as the following simple guidelines are followed.

  • Do not edit the structure of the pom.xml file, feel free to add a dependency if you need it but the formatting and structure should not be changed.
  • If you are exposing a new API method, add a JavaDoc comment to it, but don't over-comment internal code.
  • Follow the existing code style, don't antagonise over every space though !

All dependencies that are used are now available from a public Maven repo, so you don't have to worry about building several other projects just to add a simple change any more.

    I have this as my config: default-prefix: '[' default-suffix: '] ' irc-prefix: '&b[IRC]&r'

    and the outcome is: (Image a bit too spammy here)

    I wish I could change my BukkitDev name, if you know, please PM Me!
    My server is gone. The website is still here until Janurary!
    If you want to be nice and donate and help make Jackz Craft 2.0 (hopefully more skript-based, then plugin-based :D)

    @ic_trab: Go

    The prefix is simply added to the start of the message, so if it does not end in a reset code then the colour will continue.

    Hello I am using pex and the output from vault seems to not be separating player names from the chat.

    Also the player colors are "leaking" onto the chat.

    I have tried fiddling around with prefixes and suffixes and the string formatting to no avail.

    My name from pex is like this (without the quotes): Prefix: "&b|IC| " Name: "trab"

    That part is coming out fine however the chat after my name is the same colour as the prefix and the usual ": " after my name is not there.

    Any ideas?

    @MattIPv4: Go

    You should not use formatting in the alias config, that is for names only. If you set up the name correctly it should get the prefix from Vault.

    @MattIPv4: Go

    Depends on the IRC server, check their documentation.

    Also please stop writing in title case ._.

    Check the server log for any errors on startup and file a bug report if you find one. Also make sure all the dependencies are installed.
