Insights

Insights is a plugin which scans arbitrary regions and applies block limitations on them. Insights' limits are super configurable, allowing for group limits, individual (permission-based) limits, and tile limits. Each limit is able to be bypassed through permissions, which you can customize in the limits configuration.

Apart from all placeable materials, Insights also supports the limitation of the following static entities:

  • Item Frames
  • Glow Item Frames
  • Armor Stands
  • Paintings
  • End Crystals

Insights applies a mapreduce design pattern to perform scans asynchronously, thus keeping the main thread free from counting materials. Insights also provides an extensive developer API to create your own custom defined region addons, or to perform arbitrary scans and process those.

For a full description of this plugin, please refer to SpigotMC: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/56489/

Extensions

These plugins are extensions on Insights, they must be placed in your plugins/ folder.

  • InsightsWorldEditExtension - Block materials through WorldEdit modifications. Supports Insights' limits & disallows any placement of limited blocks.

Addons

Addons define regions for Insights to limit blocks in. Instead of a limit per chunk, when a block is placed in such a region, it will first count all blocks in that region, and after enforce limits in that region. Regions are cached to not bother with scans each time a block has been placed.

Compiling Insights

There are two ways to compile Insights:

1. Installing gradle (recommended)

  1. Make sure you have gradle installed.
  2. Run the project with gradle build to compile it with dependencies.

2. Using the wrapper
