Styled Chat

It's a simple mod that allows server owners to change how their chat looks!

It adds support for modern chat formatting supported by Minecraft, but ignored by many chat mods/plugins.

It's also compatible with any mods using Placeholder API.

It also supports changing style per player with permissions (supports LuckPerms and PlayerRoles)

This mod works only on Fabric Mod Loader and compatible!

If you have any questions, you can ask them on my Discord

Also check out my other mods and project, as you might find them useful!

In chat formatting

If player has a required permissions (styledchat.format.[tag_name], where [tagname] is Text Parser tag), then they can use Simplified Text tags from within their chat. Additionally, you can enable markdown and legacy (&X) formatting in the config
