Write plugins in JRuby!
Rubybukkit is a custom plugin loader that enables you to write Bukkit plugins as short Ruby/JRuby scripts.
- Loads Bukkit plugins written in Ruby/JRuby
- Download the plugin from the Files tab and drop it into the plugins folder
- Create the folder plugins/RubyBukkit (or let the plugin create it on server start); this folder will contain the JRuby runtime and all your Ruby plugins
- Download the JRuby runtime version 1.6.x from http://jruby.org/download (get JRuby 1.6.x Binary as tar.gz or zip)
- Extract the file jruby.jar in the lib folder from that archive and drop it into plugins/RubyBukkit
The source code is available in the Github repository: https://github.com/Zeerix/RubyBukkit
I will accept Pull Requests if I have the time and I find them useful.
The plugin will create a default configuration file on startup as plugins/RubyBukkit/config.yml.
