Styled Sidebars

This mod allows you to create dynamic and server side sidebars (using scoreboard) with all functionality you need! Supports static, scrolling (with looping) and paged sidebars with full support for Text Placeholder API and compatible mods.

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

Commands (and permissions):

  • /styledsidebars - Main command (styledsidebars.main, available by default)
  • /styledsidebars reload - Reloads configuration and styles (requires styledsidebars.reload)

You can find config file in ./config/styled-sidebars/.

  // config version, don't modify as otherwise it might get corrupted!
  "config_version_dont_modify": 1,
  "_comment": "Before changing anything, see",
  // Id of a style used by default. Id is determined by filename of style
  "default_style": "default",

This mod allows having multiple styles, that can be selected by players (just put them in ./config/styled-sidebars/styles/ and use /styledsidebars reload command) Formatting uses Simplified Text Format for which docs you can find here.
