Dependency Information

Yes, this also includes all API provided by Paper, Spigot, and Bukkit.

Building and setting up

Initial setup

First, clone this repository. Do not download it.

Then run the following command in the root directory:

./gradlew applyPatches

The project is now ready for use in your IDE.

Creating a patch

Patches are effectively just commits in either Purpur-API or Purpur-Server. To create one, just add a commit to either repo and run ./gradlew rebuildPatches, and a patch will be placed in the patches folder. Modifying commits will also modify its corresponding patch file.

See for more detailed information.


Use the command ./gradlew build to build the API and server. Compiled JARs will be placed under Purpur-API/build/libs and Purpur-Server/build/libs. These JARs are not used to start a server.

To compile a server-ready purpurclip jar, run ./gradlew createReobfPaperclipJar. To install the purpur-api and purpur dependencies to your local Maven repo, run ./gradlew publishToMavenLocal. The compiled purpurclip jar will be in build/libs/ not Purpur-Server/build/libs.

Special Thanks To:



YourKit, makers of the outstanding Java profiler, support open source projects of all kinds with their full-featured Java and .NET application profilers. We thank them for allowing us to use their software so we can make Purpur the best it can be.


JetBrains Logo
