Basically, this means everyone is free to use, modify, and distribute the mod, as long as modifications are also licensed the same way.
Most importantly, the Affero variant of the GPL requires you to publish your modifications in source form, even if the mod is run only on the server, and not distributed.

That IS awesome, great job... ;)
You should probably change its name to avoid confusion with Minecraft. Something like MESEdit? :P

When I followed your instructions, I got "permission denied" (or similar). weperms.txt created, logged in with the right name, weperms looks like

Code: Select all
{marktraceur}


Bug?

Would it be possible to have a //replace command?
Like: //replace dirt stone (replaces all dirt in selection with stone)

Try copying weperms.txt into your current directory.
I'll make this better in the next version

That is possible.
I'll include it in the next version

Awesome. Celeron added something that should make it easier:

Code: Select all
    bd21f00        Add minetest.get_modpath(modname)

We need a new dev release

Hmm. Shouldn't weperms.txt be per-world? I'm not sure if the mod directory is guaranteed to be writeable.

There should probably be minetest.get_worldpath() for this kind of usage?

Hmm.

Suggestion 1:
  • There's a new world subdirectory, say world/moddata.
  • Define a function minetest.read_file(filename) which reads a file below world/moddata and returns its contents as a string (or an array of lines?). Similarly, define minetest.write_file(filename, contents).
  • Disable io.open and all other functions from from the io library. This should make it a bit safer to install random mods.
    • Also make sure minetest.{read,write}_file don't accept filenames that contain a directory separator or start with a dot.
    • And there's os.execute,os.remove, ...

or

Suggestion 2:
  • Like suggestion 1, but instead of minetest.read_file and minetest.write_file, define minetest.open_file(filename, mode) which opens a file under world/moddata and returns a file handle. This might mean that some functions from the io module would need to stay enabled.

or

Suggestion 3:
  • Restrict all filesystem access from lua and give mods some kind of access to the sqlite database.

Suggestion 4: Suggestion 1 or 2, but with a dialog if the mod wants to write/delete something.
Like, a menu showing up: "Do you want to allow modname to write modstuff.extension? Reason: reason".

I like Suggestion 4, but there should be a Button "Yes for all (only modname)"

Is there going to be a remove feature? (or if there already is by like //set [some block that is equal to nothing])

@Gatharoth you could do "//set air" ^_^

Last time I tried "//set air" I was getting an error that it couldn't replace the block(s). And now today, it replaces them. >.< Oh well. Good mod anyway :D

Now add {username} to the file, for each user who should be able to use WorldEdit.

I did that, I made a weperms.txt file and added my username in the brackets as so: {John_Lennon}. It didn't work so I just put the name "test" in there, and it still didn't work. I am on windows, if that helps anything.

its case sensitive, so the login name has to equal the name in the weperms.txt

so unless your login name for the server (including local) is "John_Lennon". Then idk. (if you're not using local, then you should also put it in the server's bin folder)
