What do I do?

I'm a core developer for Minetest. I've spent an uncountable number of hours and over £400 on Minetest, which includes merchandise and server costs for CTF. I'm happy to do this as it gives me some enjoyment, but a coffee in return would be awesome :)

Core Development

As a core developer, I've reviewed 100s of PRs and contributed over 100 patches. That's a lot of new features and bug fixes. Here's some notable things I added:

  • ContentDB, as seen in "Browse Online Content" in the Content tab.
  • Formspec features:
    • Formspec theming and formspec styling (like CSS, coming in 5.1.0).
    • 9 slice backgrounds, area-based tooltips, and containers.
  • and Lua API features:
    • HP Damage reasons.
    • ItemStack meta data, per-stack descriptions, and a unified meta API.
    • on_grant / on_revoke privilege callbacks.
    • The dialog which shows you errors, so you don't need to open debug.txt!

Minetest Modding Book

A book to gently introduce users to the Minetest API, both for making mods and games.

Capture the Flag

I developed CTF for 3 years before creating a public server in 2015.
