DevKit is a mod by Antonio that allows you to create your own mods ingame. The modding files are stored directly in the world data, so they are aviable by everyone, easily changeable via the inbuilt editor and it's easy for everyone to upload his files. (not everyone owns his own server, actually quite few)
Ingame, there is the command /openEditor alias /oe which opens the file editor. The startup files can be chosen atm only manually via the config, but that might be changed.
