BentoBox API

BentoBox uses Maven, and its Maven repository is kindly provided by CodeMC.





repositories {
  maven { url "" }

dependencies {
  compileOnly 'world.bentobox:bentobox:PUT-VERSION-HERE-SNAPSHOT'

Note: Due to a Gradle issue with versions for Maven, you need to use -SNAPSHOT at the end.


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!
