Contrib folder

evennia/contrib/ contains 'contributions': extra snippets of code that are potentially very useful for the game coder but which are considered too game-specific to be a part of the main Evennia game server. These modules are not used unless you explicitly import them. See each file for more detailed instructions on how to install.

Modules in this folder are distributed under the same licence as Evennia unless noted differently in the individual module.

If you want to edit, tweak or expand on this code you should copy the things you want from here into your game folder and change them there.
