Getting started

  1. Latest released build can be found on releases page.

  2. To toggle visibility of The Console hit CTRL + ` .

  3. The Console by itself can't do much besides running JavaScript. Just go into %APPDATA/TheConsole/scripts (create if doesn't exists) and create some .js files. Every single .js file (which doesn't belong to some module) is a command name, i.e. currency.js can be called using currency command.

Build from sources

Launch mvn clean package -Dmaven.test.skip=true to get target/theconsole-{version}.jar.
