Using text effects without the placeholders

For some reason if you want to use text effects on areas which don't support ItemsAdder placeholders (like <r TEXT>) you can use another method.

These effects are triggered based on a special HEX color. So if the area where you want to show a text effect supports HEX colors you can do that.

Special colors







Rainbow + Wobble


Rainbow + Jump


Using them in Minecraft vanilla JSON notation

This triggers the rainbow effect: /tellraw @a {"text":"custom text example", "color":"#FFFFFE"}

Replace FFFFFE with the effect you want.

Using them in plugins which support MiniMessage

(for example ItemsAdder itself and ChatFormatter)

This triggers the rainbow effect: <#FFFFFE>custom text example

Replace FFFFFE with the effect you want.

Using them in plugins which support legacy HEX notation







Rainbow + Wobble


Rainbow + Jump


This was tested on EpicRename and should work in any plugin or place where Spigot handles the colors replacement using its own legacy colors code.

Example: /rename &x&F&F&F&F&F&ETest
