Chatbox Introduction ‚Äč

SwitchCraft uses a server-side chatbox system (instead of peripherals). This has several benefits:

  • The player does not need to craft any additional items to use a chatbox
  • The chatbox API can be accessed from outside the game (e.g. a web server)
  • Chatboxes can receive messages from Discord and other chatboxes
  • Improved moderation capabilities for staff

As of SwitchCraft 3, the latest version of the chatbox API is v2.

The ComputerCraft-compatible Lua API is built into the rom, and can be used straight away with a single command.
