Get Started


Hello world written in python.

    class Example:

        def On_PlayerConnected(self, Player):

            Player.Message("Hello, world!")
            Player.Message("Bonjour, le monde")


For the more advanced coders, you can directly code in native CSharp, which is used to build rust. This is the fastest of the 3 in execution time.

    namespace HelloWorld
        public class HelloWorld : CSharpPlugin
            public void On_PlayerConnected(Player player)
                player.Message("Hello, world!");
                player.Message("Bonjour, le monde");


A simple hello world plugin written in javascript.

    function On_PlayerConnected(Player) {

        Player.Message("Hello, world!");
        Player.Message("Bonjour, le monde");


A hello world plugin written in Lua.

    function On_PlayerConnected(Player)
	    Player.Message("Hello, world!")
	    Player.Message("Bonjour, le monde")
