The purpose of Lukkit is to allow developers and server administrators to create plugins for the Spigot API with ease using the Lua scripting language. The language is simple and can be quick to pick up, even for beginners. UnwrittenFun was the original author behind Lukkit. However, he abandoned the project and jammehcow took over a couple years later. He was able to update the project to 1.11.2, but lacked the time and motivation to continue maintaining the project himself. Because of this, Lukkit has been in the hands of a number of developers since jammehcow, but has now landed in the hands of AL_1 and Artex Development.

There have been numerous updates and changes made to Lukkit since the original documentation for both Lukkit v1.1.3 and Lukkit v2.0 had been released. In order to keep the documentation updated and in the best interest of users, documentation has been moved from using the GitHub wiki to using GitBook.
Lukkit follows a set of branch conventions that make it easier for developers and contributors to manage the project.
