  • Added list value expression [[skript-]y[a]ml] value %number% (of|in|from) list %string% (of|in|from) %string% [without string checks]

    • Warns if the node is not a list or if the index is not within range
  • Added more verbose error logging

    • Internal errors now show the sk file and line number also there are more error/warning messages for certain things
  • Bug fixes

    • Sometimes strings would split between multiple lines (which snakeyaml does by default) causing data to sometimes be lost
      • Fixed by preventing strings from splitting
    • Sometimes strings containing '&' would save without double quotes and cause an error preventing the data from loading correctly
      • Fixed by forcing those strings to save with double quotes (currently )
    • Fixed some NPEs laying around the place
  • Skript versions

    • In Skript 2.4 some api changes were made to some class names and methods and again in Skript 2.6 some other changes were made
      • This update addresses those changes and makes things backwards compatible

Thanks to @wallace4BR and others for helping me test unreleased updates between the last release

  • Backwards compatibility

    • Some time during 1.13.2 spigot decided to update snakeyaml
    • In the previous update I made skript-yaml work with the newer version but didn't make things backwards compatible
    • Now everything works with versions 1.13.2 and lower
  • Updated load effect

    • [re]load [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] [y[a]ml] %string% as %string% (only allows a single input)
    • [re]load [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] [y[a]ml] %strings% [using [the] [file] path[s] as [the] id[s]]
      • Using [using [the] [file] path[s] as [the] id[s]] replaces having to manually enter the file path as an id
      • This second syntax allows for multiple inputs
  • Updated unload effect to unload [y[a]ml] [(1¦director(y|ies))] %strings% (allows for multiple inputs)

    • The [(1¦director(y|ies))] option requires one or more directories as an input and unloads any loaded yaml files from them
  • Updated save effect to save [y[a]ml] %strings% [with an indentation of %-number%] [(1¦[and] with(out| no) extra lines between nodes)]

    • Now allows for multiple inputs
    • You can also set the amount of indentation
  • Updated delete yaml effect to delete [y[a]ml] %strings%

    • Now allows for multiple inputs
  • Moved all delete yaml directory syntax to a single class(internal stuff)

    • Updated delete (all|any) [y[a]ml] from [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] director(y|ies) %strings%
    • Moved delete (all|any) loaded [y[a]ml] from [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] director(y|ies) %strings%
    • Moved delete (all|any) loaded [y[a]ml] from [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] director(y|ies) %strings% using [the] filename as [the] id
  • Updated all loaded yaml expression to [(the|all [(of the|the)])] [currently] loaded y[a]ml [files] [from (director(y|ies) %-strings%|all directories)]

    • Using the from director(y|ies) %-strings% option outputs all loaded yaml from one or more directories
  • Added all loaded yaml directories expression [(the|all [(of the|the)])] [currently] loaded y[a]ml directories

  • Added yaml file exists condition [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] y[a]ml file %string% exists and [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] y[a]ml file %string% does(n't| not) exist

  • Fixed issue in the yaml expression where node keys were not adding and removing properly.

  • Fixed issue with using AsyncEffect during on disable: event

  • Added some loop stuff for the yaml expression

  • Added ability for other (java)addon developers to register custom tags(!location, !vector, etc..) with skript-yaml

    • Warns if the tag or class you are trying to register is already registered
    • Also warns if the represented or constructed class doesn't match the class you are registering
    • This is only useful if for some reason you want to add the ability to save something to yaml that doesnt already serialize

1.13 support

  • Fixed issue with stuff not saving properly due to 'NoSuchMethod' error

EDIT: At the moment this version doesn't work with some older versions of spigot(1.8 etc.), you can safely use 1.2.4 if you get a 'NoSuchMethod' error

More fixes

  • Fixed issue with files not loading if some keys contained integers
    • They now get converted into characters, keep this in mind when fetching data from those nodes
  • Fixed issue with elements not saving in the same order they were set
  • Fixed error when loading a file with empty nodes
  • Fixed a casting issue with lists

  • Fixed issue #6 before it was reported <3
    • Moved serialization method to better location to address an issue where certain serialization didn't happen if the file was loaded and saved again(without setting the value)
  • Added more skript classes to the representer
    • Date, Time, Timespan, Color and WeatherType
      • Date is parsed the same way snakeyaml would have converted 'java.util.Date'
      • The rest use skript methods to convert back and forth

  • Added Skripts ItemType and Slot class to the yaml representer
    • This fixes certain items not being saved as ItemStack
  • Fixed stacktrace when saving empty yaml
  • Updated the Yaml expression to filter color codes back and forth
    • Use the without string checks option to disable it

Bugfixes and more

  • Updated how de/serialization works using Snakeyamls built in methods
    • This means you will see a change in how Skript serialized classes look removing the map node 'skriptclass' to a tag '!skriptclass' that Snakeyaml uses to parse data types
    • Vector and Location also have a tag and removal of the map node representing the data type
    • Bukkits ConfigurationSerializable data types are also de/serializable using the same method bukkit feeds to snakeyaml
      • These types have their own serialized structure
    • It will update any previously saved data types
  • Added Effect to delete all yaml or any loaded yaml from a directory
  • delete all [y[a]ml] from [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] director(y|ies) %strings%
  • delete (all|any) loaded [y[a]ml] from [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] director(y|ies) %strings% [using [the] filename as [the] id]
  • Re-added 'Does yaml path exist' condition since the built in skript version was returning the wrong result (check docs for more info)
  • Changed 'Yaml' expression to [[skript-]y[a]ml] (1¦value|2¦(node|path) list|3¦(node|path)[s with] keys|4¦list) %string% (of|in|from) %string% [without string checks]
    • Using '(node|path) list' only gets a list of nodes at that path (full names like 'rootnode.subnode' are returned)
  • Fixed comments and header not loading into memory during a fresh load (causing them to not be saved as a result)
  • Snakeyaml loads asynchronously already so i changed loading 'Effect' instead of 'AsyncEffect' (it fixes an error that happens sometimes)

Skript serialized classes now look like...

nodeName: !skriptclass
	type: someclasstype
	data: bGF3bHMgZ2V0IHJla3QgPDMgdGhpcyBpcyBvbmx5IGZvciBleGFtcGxl

Added even more things to make the addon more feature complete

  • Added effect [re]load all [y[a]ml] from [(1¦non[(-| )]relative)] director(y|ies) %strings% [using [the] filename as [the] id] (loads all .yml from a directory thx pikachu for the idea)
  • Files are now saved with additional lines between each node
    • Updated 'Save yaml' effect to...
      • save [y[a]ml] %string% [(1¦without extra lines between nodes)]
  • Comments and header no longer add additional lines by default
    • Updated 'Yaml comment/header' expressions to...
      • [the] comment[s] (of|from) [y[a]ml] node[s] %strings% (of|in|from) %string% [(1¦with [an] extra line)]
      • [the] (comment[s] (at|on) [the] top of |header (of|from)) %string% [(1¦with [an] extra line)]
  • Updated 'Yaml' expression return type now stuff like this works...
broadcast yaml value "location" from "plugins/skript-yaml/teleport.yml"

teleport player to yaml value "location" from "plugins/skript-yaml/teleport.yml"
