API Decent Tab Completer 2.0

    Decent Tab Completer
    A Tab Completer API that is actually useful and simple, with understandable syntax.

    Syntax

    Code (Text):
    1. completions of [the] command %string%
    2. # You can get, set, add, remove and delete completions
    3. # You will probably only use this with the set method
    4. #
    5. # You have to define the command WITH its arguments (unlike before).
    6. # For example:
    7. set completions of command "/test hello" to ("general_kenobi" and "there")
    Code (Text):
    1. all [the] completions
    2. # You can get and delete all the completions
    3. # This had some use in the previous version, but I don't think it's useful now.
    4. # You can use it to delete completions at the load of your Skript,
    5. # to prevent completions that you don't use anymore from still loading (since they are stored in a variable)
    Code (Text):
    1. # ONLY USABLE IN TabCompleteEvent
    2. (buffer|tab[bed] command)
    3. # This returns the command
    4. # If you execute '/sk reload' it will return '/sk' (always with a '/')
    Code (Text):
    1. # ONLY USABLE IN TabCompleteEvent
    2. tab arg[ument]( |-)%integer%
    3. # Returns the text at an argument in your command.
    4. # Works like normal command arguments ('arg-1', etc.)
    Other features
    • Easy to use: in most use cases, you only have to configure the completions at the load of your script. The plugin does the rest for you!
    • User-friendly: when you type while tab-completing (this is going to feel nice for servers with 1.13+), it will only show completions that correspond to the command you typed. For example, if you typed "/test hel" and the completions were configured as "bye" and "hello", it will only show "hello" as a completion.
    • The completions are stored in variables, so are never lost. There is a way to delete all completions, to prevent completions that aren't in use anymore from loading
    • This should not interrupt with other plugins as long as you don't change completions from OTHER plugins that also use tab-completion. The message is to only use it for your plugins or for plugins that do not support it.
    • Small resource: the code is actually only 70 lines long (when you remove all empty lines, probably 50 lines), so this doesn't make your resource incredibly large.
    • Only one copy of this resource is needed per server
    • You have the ability to edit completions at the event itself, allowing more custom completions (like players online, faction members online, bungeecord lobbies open, ...)

    Requirements

    • Skript: Every version should work (from Bensku of course)
    • skript-mirror: Latest branch (2.0), this is used for the importation and the usage of the TabCompleteEvent

    Examples

    Code (Text):
    1. # Example 1: Skript command completer
    2. on load:
    3.     delete all the completions
    4.     set completions of "/sk" to ("reload", "help", "update", "enable" and "disable")
    5.     set completions of "/sk reload" to ("all", "config", "aliases" and "scripts")
    6.  
    7. # You can also add support for this for every Skript file, by looping them and adding them when you call a tab-complete event.
    Code (Text):
    1. # Example 2: Just a silly command
    2. command /example <text>:
    3.     trigger:
    4.         broadcast arg-1
    5.  
    6. on load:
    7.     set completions of command "/example" to ("good morning gamers", "how are you" and "check our shop!")
    Disclaimer
    I indeed based me on the idea someone created here. I actually made it better and easier to utilise with more functions. I advise you to use this one because I will update it sometimes to add some new features, but I just wanted to mention this, because I want to give him a sort of credits.
