Notifies you when you're mentioned in chat.


Boop is a chat plugin that notifies you when you’re mentioned in chat. By default, if you typed “@pie_flavor” in a chat message, and I was on the server, it would make a ‘ping!’ noise and highlight “@pie_flavor” in yellow. If you typed “@staff”, it would ‘ping!’ all ops (or everyone who had the permission


prefix: This is the prefix that defines what is meant by ‘mention’. Defaults to “@”.
name{}: If recolor is true, then the instance of the mention (e.g. @pie_flavor) is colored with the color color. If color-all is true, then the instance of the mention is colored with the color alt-color for everyone who is not its target.
message{}: If recolor is true, then the entire message will be colored color.
sound{}: If play is true, then the sound sound will be played.
groups[]: Each string in here represents a group of people that can be mentioned. A person is in a group if they have the permission node<group_name>. If the group name contains dots, they are changed in the permission to be underscores.
title{}: If use is true, then text will be shown to the player as a subtitle when they are mentioned.
restricted[]: Anything in this list has restricted usage for mentioning; the permission boop.use.<boop_text> will be required to boop them. For example, you may have a group all, and all users have; if you restrict all, and only give boop.use.all to admins, only admins will be able to boop via @all.
aliases{}: Here, you can supply aliases for players. For example, if I gave myself an alias Owner on my server, players typing @Owner would boop me. This is recommended over groups for single players.
blacklisted-channels[]: A list of class names of channels to not replace with a BoopableChannel. e.g.$StaffChat

This plugin uses bStats, which can collect data about your server. This data is in no way intrusive, is completely anonymized, and has a negligible impact on server performance, so there is no reason whatsoever not to enable it. Knowing my plugins are actively used is what keeps me developing. Please consider enabling metrics globally or for this plugin specifically in the metrics section in global.conf. A list of collected data can be found here.
