What is an SK file?
An SK file is a script file written in the Skript language, which is used to write scripts that modify gameplay in Minecraft. It stores plain text code that is run by the Skript plug-in in Minecraft when an event in the game triggers it, such as the action of a player or passage of a certain amount of time in the game.
You will most likely only encounter an SK file if you use the Skript plug-in with Minecraft to adjust or add gameplay features. You may also receive an SK file via email or cloud storage service from another Minecraft gamer who utilizes Skript and is looking to share a script with you.
In order to use the SK file with Minecraft, you need to install the Skript plug-in. After installing the plug-in, place the SK file in the Skript/scripts/ directory.
How to open an SK file
You can open and edit SK files with SkIDE, which is an open-source IDE for Skript that provides code highlighting and auto-complete capabilities.
Since SK files are saved in plain text, you can use text editors, such as the cross-platform Microsoft Visual Studio Code or Sublime Text, to view and edit the files.
You can also use a plain text editor bundled with your operating system. In Windows, you can use Microsoft Notepad or Microsoft WordPad, and in macOS you can use Apple TextEdit.

An SK file may also be a drawing created by Skencil, a vector drawing program available for Linux. It contains a vector graphic. SK files were replaced by .SK1 files when Skencil was replaced by sK1.
Skencil is a free program that allows Linux users to create vector drawings. Unlike raster images, vector drawings are composed of text-based paths that are defined by a start point and an end point, as well as other points, curves, and angles. Because vector drawings are comprised of paths, not pixels, they can be blown up to a larger size without losing any image quality.
Vector drawings created using Skencil are saved as SK files. Development on Skencil was discontinued in 2005, and the program has since been replaced by sK1, which was created using a fork of Skencil. sK1 saves vector drawings as SK1 files.
NOTE: Skencil was previously called Sketch.
How to open an SK file
You can open an SK file in Skencil (Linux) by selecting File → Open... from the program's menu bar. You may also be able to open an SK file in sK1 (Linux) and Inkscape (cross-platform).
