Hex color codes and gradient

Warning: Early versions of Spigot/PaperSpigot may not be supported. Use only latest builds to correct work of Chatty 1.16 features

Chatty supports new 1.16+ color codes. To add a new color code in your chat format, you need use the following pattern:


{#12ABCD} is hex code. You also can combine it with style codes:



You can create various multi-color gradient strings with this pattern:

{#ffffff:#0039a6:#d52b1e This is awesome tricolor gradient}

Number of hex codes is unlimited:

{#d818c4:#ae6be6:#0f7584:#7983a7:#a793ba:#34344b This is multicolor gradient}

In-game gradient example


See default configuration in src/main/java/resources/config.yml.

A little life-hack

You can delete all excess blocks and keep only needed features.

Plugin will work even with this simple config:

    enable: true
    format: '{prefix}{player}{suffix}&r: {message}'
    permission: false


Project provides particular Maven module with API classes.

You can get access to plugin API with ChattyApi.get() method.

Now plugin has only one event in API: ChattyMessageEvent, that calls when any player messages the chat.


Chatty uses Gradle to handle dependencies & building.


  • Java 8 JDK or newer
  • Git

Compiling from source

git clone
cd Chatty/
./gradlew build

You can find the output jar in /build/libs directory.
