There is a lot of functionality many admins will want for their server that is not necessarily needed by all those deploying MineOS. An addon is a simple script that will download, build, and install a piece of software. Follow the complete instructions for each addon on its wiki page. Please note, these addons only work for MineOS CRUX and are provided as convenience scripts--they are not the only way to install pieces of software and other, non-CRUX variants have their own prescribed method to install software.
Updating add-on install scripts
The below addons all have shell scripts in the /usr/games/minecraft/addons which--when run as root--will download and install its respective files from the internet. The shell scripts automate some simple tasks, such as creating users and running the ports system downloader and compiles/extracts the software.
While the addon shell scripts are all-inclusive, I encourage all users to learn what the scripts are doing by reading them and even executing the lines personally, rather than automated-ly. This will give you a much more complete understanding of the tasks involved and the binaries/configurations installed.
If you would like to try out running the ports system manually, first update all the Pkgfiles. This downloads all the files to /usr/ports/mineos, which is the repository for all the MineOS-related packages.
