Data Files

Data files are JSON files that plugins may use to store arbitrary data.

Data directory

Data files may be found in the data folder which located by default in oxide/data (unless the server host has moved it).

File names

Data files do not follow any naming convention, a plugin author may specify any name when creating a data file.

It is recommended to plugin authors, when creating a large number of data files, to create them in a subdirectory specific to their plugin.

Valid JSON

All plugin data files are saved as JSON (JavaScript Object Notation). Data files must be valid JSON. If editing a data file manually, use a validator such as to ensure the data file is valid JSON.
