    You think its possible to learn to code a pocketmine plugin without understanding php before?
    Maybe like learning php by doing?
    What are your thoughts?

    Why would you unnecessary challenge yourself? You had enough time to ask this question, so I'd assume you can invest an hour learning the basics. You'll simply make this harder than it needs to be. It is actually quite easy to start, and I encourage you to take it from small steps at first, don't go at plugins just yet. Learn the basics of the language.

    Here is Derek Banas video for PHP full tutorial:

    But I advise you to watch this first:


    And most importantly: follow along, all he says and shows will fly over if you don't experiment and work along. Good luck!

    I repeat: do not start with plugins. You'll waste time asking yourself and others really dumb questions, please do, but listen to my advice at first.

    It is actually quite amusing how the tutorial is written, knowing the average audience age.

    Not saying anything to hate on it, it's written well, even too good that child should understand it, and that is my point.

    The only problem with it though, is that a few features it shows you don’t work on the new api updates (as I’ve found out from experience. Still, might be of use to somebody, just don’t know who

    Use Hippity Hoppity your code is now my property skill!
    You can make ANY plugin using this!!!


    It's a joke. I tried making a plugin without learning php in like 2016 or 2017 and it didn't turn out very great so yeah I recommend learning php first unless you know how to code and code other languages.
