About BentoBox

Description

BentoBox is a powerful Bukkit library plugin that provides core features for island-style games like SkyBlock, AcidIsland, SkyGrid and others. These games are added to it via its unique Addon system. Further, non-game addons can provide features across games, such as challenges or warps. This enables admins to mix and match games and features to customize their server. It also enables the same code to be run across games, reducing bugs and speeding updates across all games. For coders, BentoBox has a powerful API allows for quick and easy development of these addons and simplifies complex aspects such as island protection, GUIs, and team management.

BentoBox is free and open-source software so join us to make this platform grow, become even more powerful and popular! Admins can pay to support BentoBox and Addons via donations and sponsorship.

History

tastybento created ASkyBlock and AcidIsland that shared the same codebase. These plugins became very popular but became hard to maintain. Poslovitch was running a Skyblock server before starting to contribute regularly to ASkyBlock's codebase. He proposed the idea of completely rewriting ASkyBlock to make it easier to maintain and richer in features. In May 2017, this became the BSkyBlock project. As development progressed it became clear that a lot of the new core features could be used by other island-style games and so that core functionality was split off and renamed BentoBox and the addon system was created. The addons for BSkyBlock and AcidIsland became very simple to develop and much smaller. The community started to grow and we added new game modes like SkyGrid and CaveBlock by BONNe. BONNe also took over maintenance of Challenges and Biomes and contributed to other addons.

In December 2019, Poslovitch launched the BentoBox collection on SpigotMC and the story continues!
