Supported Minecraft Versions
  1. 1.12

This is now being developed as an add-on, grab it here:

This script provides you with several new expressions for use in your skript library. It is intentionally lacking effects & conditions, as expressions are all you need and size can be saved. If you consider some of the expressions' syntax a bit wanky, please feel free to suggest additional and/or better syntax.

Note that this is supposed to be no more than a supplement to vanilla Skript. All expressions contained within this API are using spigot-methods and thus are hopefully likely to be added to vanilla Skript. Once that should happen, those features will be removed from Expressions+.
