World Data Manager Library

A library for managing data files in the world directory.

API / Library

Description:

A library for managing data files in the world directory.

It takes a little work to read from & write to data in the world directory. wdata aims to make that easier by utilizing just two simple methods.

This mod is essentially an alternative to Minetest's built-in StorageRef & was created before I realized the implementation existed. Some may still find wdata useful as it does allow for customizing sub-directories & filenames.

Licensing:

Usage:

There are two methods:

wdata.read(fname)
- reads json data from file in world directory & converts to a table.
- parameters:
    - fname:  File basename without suffix (e.g. "my_config" or "my_mod/my_config").

wdata.write(fname, data[, styled])
- converts table to json data & writes to file in world directory.
- parameters:
    - fname:  File basename without suffix (e.g. "my_config" or "my_mod/my_config").
    - data:   Table containing data to be exported.
    - styled: Outputs in a human-readable format if this is set (default: true).

Requirements:

  • Depends: none
  • Optional depends: none

Do you recommend this mod?

  • not useful

    This mod provides what a mod should implement itself, not depend on a external dependancy. Not to mention it could use mod storage itself. Nice icon for the project though
