Skill Slots is a mod that adds player skill slots for item-based skills. You can use KubeJS or Java code to create your own skills.

// priority: 0
// Server script

// Make your item can be put in skill slots
// If the item already has a right-click function, the skill already works now
ServerEvents.tags('item', event => {
  event.add('skillslots:skill', 'minecraft:diamond')

// Of course, you can use KubeJS to create an item, and add some fancy right-click function to it
ItemEvents.rightClicked('minecraft:diamond', event => {
  event.player.tell('You right clicked a diamond!')
  // Cooldown, works
  event.player.addItemCooldown(event.item, 60)

// This event will also be called when using the skill
BlockEvents.rightClicked(event => {
  // Check the item cooldown by yourself
  event.player.tell('You right clicked a block!')

// Here you will know how to get access to the skill slots from a player
ItemEvents.rightClicked('minecraft:emerald', event => {
  let handler = Java.loadClass('snownee.skillslots.SkillSlotsHandler').of(event.player)

  let diamond = Item.of('minecraft:diamond')
  // Here are some NBT options to customize the skill
  diamond.nbt = {}
  diamond.nbt.SkillSlots = {
    UseDuration: 20,
    IconScale: 1.5,
    // CanBeToggled: true, // make your skill work as a passive skill. the player can toggle it on/off
    ChargeCompleteSound: 'minecraft:entity.player.levelup', // leave it empty to mute

  // In config, you can disable the player ability to change skills
  // Here is an example to change the skill through KubeJS
  handler.setItem(0, diamond)

  // Example of checking if the player has a skill that can be toggled and currently activated
  let index = handler.findActivatedPassiveSkill(skill => === 'minecraft:diamond')
  if (index !== -1) {
    let skill = handler.skills.get(index)

You can use handler.setSlots(int) to set the amount of the unlocked slots, or use the Slot Unlock item provided by this mod.
