This article will show you how to use Spigot's BuildTools system to get the latest versions of Spigot!

Tip: If your server is running on Pebblehost, you can use the version we provide! Simply select it in the JAR Dropdown Menu.

Note: This step is optional, and BuildTools should do this for you now. Firstly, you'll have to have a few things installed on your PC. Simply go to https://gitforwindows.org/, hit the Download button and install the Git software to your computer.
Next, make sure you have Java installed onto your computer. If you do not, you can download it here
Download BuildTools to a folder on your desktop.
Shift-Right-Click the folder you put it in, and click either Open Powershell Window Here, or Open Command Prompt Here, either will work.

In the command window type java -jar BuildTools.jar

If it says Error: Unable to access jarfile, this means either you mistyped the command, or you did not open command prompt to the correct folder. If it says 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, this means you do not have Java and you need to go back to step 2.

This may take some time to run as Spigot is quite a large project. Once it finishes, though, you should see the JAR file in the main folder, for example it will be spigot-1.15.2.jar.
If you want to build a different version, for example 1.8.8, you would do this like so: java -jar BuildTools.jar --rev 1..8
