NidToolbox Light

Modular set of server tools for Eco

** powered by and compatible with em-framework **

nid-core base module


For Eco 9.7

NidToolbox Light brings back the old NidToolbox plugin for previous versions of Eco, in more manageable and modular format this time around.

NEW - if you would like to have your server logo appear in the notifications area in messages that come from NidToolbox. Please join my Discord and post them in #server-logos channel.

Each module works independently, being versioned separately - with only nid-core component being required. Server admins can mix and match modules they need for their servers.

This project is a work in progress aiming to overtime bring back all of the features of old NidToolbox to Eco 9.0+. As I sadly don't have as much time to work on the project as before, modules will be released as I develop them. Your patience is appreciated <3.

Support is provided as well as suggestions are accepted on my Discord here

It is not required, but if you would like to support the development of the plugin, donations are accepted here

Core module apart from having an Update Notifier, does not do anything by itself and to get any functionality out of it, you need to download one of the available modules. Documentation and installation instructions are available at the module's page. You can find all the links below.
