What is LobFile?

ItemsAdder allows you to automatically upload your resourcepack on a free online service with servers all over the world.

Thanks a lot to LobFile which provides us their platform to host files for free!

What are the advantages?

  • download speed

  • availability

  • security: your server IP address is not exposed

  • no high bandwidth usage

I already use self-host, is this better?


It's better to use self-host if you're working on the resourcepack and you have to continuously run /iazip, to avoid losing time (read more here).

When you've finished working on the pack you can safely start using this other hosting feature instead of self-host. This will make your server traffic lower as the resourcepack won't be hosted on your server anymore.

If your playerbase is all from the same country you can stick with self-host.


Step 1

Create an account on LobFile here.

Step 2

Open your account settings here and check "Continuous uploading"

Step 3

Hover the API Key text and copy your key.

Step 4

Enable lobfile in config.yml and disable all the other hosting methods.

  enabled: true

Open secret.yml and paste your API Key.

  api_key: xxxxxxxxxx

Step 5

Run /iazip.

Wait for the Privacy policy message to appear. Run /acceptprivacy to accept the policy (will be asked only the first time).


The plugin will upload it online automatically. Nothing else to do, enjoy your free automated resourcepack hosting.

Will my resourcepack be available online to random people?

2023-12-21: Your resourcepack won't be indexed on Google and won't be published in a list of resourcepacks. Only people who know the link can download the pack.
