Using Simplified Text Format/TextParser

You can read about format here!

Usage of TextParser is simple and really customisable. You just need to import eu.pb4.placeholders.TextParser and call static parse method for admin provided configs or parseSafe for player provided ones. They both take only one String argument and output a Text object.


String inputString = "<red>Hello <rb>World</rb>!"

Text output = TextParser.parse(inputString); // Text output = TextParser.parseSafe(inputString);

Parsing with only selected ones

If you want to only use selected tags, you can simply get map of all with TextParser.getRegisteredTags() or TextParser.getRegisteredSafeTags(). Then you can copy these to your own Map with String keys and TextParser.TextFormatterHandler values. Then you just use them with TextParser.parse(String, Map<String, TextFormatterHandler>).


String inputString = "<red>Hello <blue>World</blue>!"

Map<String, TextParser.TextFormatterHandler> tags = Map.of("red", TextParser.getRegisteredTags().get("red"),
                                                        "blue", TextParser.getRegisteredTags().get("yellow") // renames works too!

Text output = TextParser.parse(inputString, tags);
