Oxide is a complete rewrite of the popular, original Oxide API and Lua plugin framework. Previously only available for the legacy Rust game, Oxide now supports numerous games. Oxide's focus is on modularity and extensibility. The core is highly abstracted and loosely coupled, and could be used to mod any game that uses the .NET Framework.
Database support for plugins is also available in the MySQL and SQLite varieties, so if JSON files aren't enough, you have options! If you'd prefer another database type, those can always be accessed via web requests and your own custom bridge script on your site.

While we recommend using one of the official release builds, you can compile your own builds if you'd like. Keep in mind that only official builds are supported by the Oxide team and community. Good luck!
Clone the repo (recommended) or download and extract the latest zip archive.
Download and install Visual Studio 2017 (community is free, but any edition will work) if you do not have it installed already.
Open the .sln solution file in Visual Studio 2017.
Build the solution. If you get errors, you're likely not using the latest Visual Studio 2017 which is required as Oxide projects use some C# 6.0 features and use the new .csproj format.
Copy the files from the
Bundlesdirectory for your game of choice to your server installation, then just start the server!
