We inherit the dual (L)GPLv3/MIT license from Paper. See Paper's License for what code is under MIT. SrgLib is also licensed under MIT.

NMS Support

We do support using Spigot's net.minecraft.server classes. Classes and Fields will automatically remap to their intermediary counterparts (Including Reflection!)


There is a progress indicator in the Discord. Although, if you're not in the Discord: Progress can be determined by the completeness of the to-do lists on the two pinned issues.
