I would advise renaming the project so as not to conflict with the original ChestShop, should the owner decide to port it to Sponge.

On another note, it looks good :slight_smile: Keep up the good work!

The owner of ChestShop already confirmed he is working on a port. I would recommend a rename for sure.


Will rename it in a minute.

EDIT: Renamed


Nice plugin. I might contribute to this plugin some time in the future!
Also, the GitHub repository doesn’t have pom.xml/gradle settings added. You might also want to create a .gitignore file. If you need help, feel free to ask me. :slight_smile:

Yes, I know. :slight_smile:

EDIT: I’ve added it - sorry it took so long.

A quick update…

As you may know, this plugin has been WIP because of the lack of an InventoryAPI. However, as you may now know, InventoryAPI was merged. I am currently updating this plugin to use the EconomyService, and InventoryAPI, as well as making the ability to support meta. Please bear with me as this is a lot of work to do, and I am limited in time. :smile:

Release v0.3

Tested on SpongeForge 1094


This release updates to use the Economy service, use the InventoryAPI, and support metadata.

Note: Although this plugin is nearly complete, Sponge’s InventoryAPI is not completed, and thus this plugin does NOT work.

Is this plugin going to be fully released soon?

I believe the InventoryAPI does not allow for the plugin to work. Once/if it does, SpongyChest will be moved out of WIP, as it should work perfectly fine.

What do you think about possibility to create purchase shops (?)
I mean, players can create place, where they can also sell their items directly to “shop” owner (but - of course - shop that sells item can’t be combined with buying back them, because some players just want to sell items, and other may want to only buy).
I don’t know if it’s already implemented in any previous Bukkit plugins, this is just my loose idea.

It’s a good idea. When InventoryAPI allows me to access chest inventories, I’ll look into it. :slight_smile:

When InventoryAPI allows me to access chest inventories

I just get an idea - do you can write ugly hack to get chest inventory? If yes, you can throw items from sign like dispenser or player’s Q key - it can be workaround while player inventory API is not ready.

Of course, if InvAPI will be released in short time this workaround isn’t worth time, but in other case…
