Hey,

after some time of searching for a solution, I make now a post.
How do I use the patcher to patch my spigot server? Do i need to add something to the grade config, if so what?
Does the patcher patch the server after compiling from the IDE or when the server starts?

Thanks!

I am confused about what you are asking.
paperweight patcher is a gradle plugin used to a) build spigot b) decompile and deobfuscate minecraft and c) apply paper patches ontop of that mess. thats part of the normal build env in your IDE.
paperclip is a tool that will download a vanilla minecraft jar and apply a binary patch that our CI generated to turn that vanilla jar into a paper jar. that happens when you download a run a paper jar from our website.

do you want to
a) use paperclip with spigot (no paper)?
or b) use paperweight to fork paper (i.e, add your own patches)?
or c) use paperweight to fork spigot?
or d) use paperweight to fork a fork of spigot (that isn't paper)?
or e) mean actual forge/fabric mods?

please clarify, lol

Sorry for my awkward expression.

I know that Paperclip is a tool for the patches.
I modded the Bukkit and Spigot API and want to add all patches from Paper.

I hope you know what I mean

I don't understand this system. How does it work?
With Buildtools for example I get the sources from Bukkit/CraftBukkit/Spigot which I can mod.
How do I get the source with this tool, I don't see a jar like Buildtools which I can execute to get the code.
How do I set it up?

sorry for my stupidity
