Lockette - Allows you to lock doors and containers with a sign or other plugins

This is a discussion topic for the Ore project, Lockette. View the full project on Ore for downloads and more information.


I wrote this plugin 2017 and thought I’d upload it to ore.
This is not a direct port of Lockette for Bukkit/Spigot but a reimplementation of
the features i remembered back when I used Lockette (which is not much).
Initially it was supposed to be submitted to a plugin contest, but i could not finish
the plugin in time.

Since I have not worked on this for quite some time I recommend some alternatives that might work better:

How to use this plugin

Add a sign on or next to a container or door and write [private] on the first line.
You can add more users to the container using a book menu.
All standard locks are saved in the world data and are removed when the signs are broken.

For plugins devs

This plugin provides PluginLocks for you to add invisible locks to conatiners.
For safety reasons you can only access lock from your plugin.

External connections

This Plugin does not have any external connections.


There is a OP permission to bypass locks: dosmike.lockette.check.if.user.is.op

A new version has been released for Lockette, it is available for download here.

So uh, not really sure if this counts as an issue, but Playernames can contain more characters than what will fit on one line of a sign, thus, making them unable to access any containers they have locked.

access data are stored as uuids, not by names. it just displays names because that’s more convenient to read.
