Event API


PlotSquared uses the Guava EventBus to register listeners and dispatch events.

Event List

Check the Javadoc of PlotSquared events.

Getting an instance

import org.bukkit.Bukkit;
import org.bukkit.plugin.java.JavaPlugin;

public class MyPlotPlugin extends JavaPlugin {
    public static MyPlotPlugin THIS;

    public void onEnable() {
        MyPlotPlugin.THIS = this;
        if (Bukkit.getPluginManager().getPlugin("PlotSquared") != null) {
        // Do something

Registering a Listener

Registering a listener is super easy. Add the @Subscribe (from the com.google.common.eventbus package) annotation to any methods that are listening to events, register the class with the EventBus through PlotAPI#registerListener(Class) and you're done! One example:

public class P2Listener {

  // if you like the dependency-injection-like approach:
  public P2Listener(PlotAPI api) {

  // less OOP, but if you want to make things easy:
  public P2Listener() {
    PlotAPI api = new PlotAPI();

  // A method handling a PlayerEnterPlotEvent
  public void onPlayerEnterPlot(PlayerEnterPlotEvent e) {
    //do stuff
