Tired of entering tedious and repetitive commands? Wish you could group commands into one short and easy to use command?

With BetterAlias you can specify any number of aliases for your commands!


  • Create aliases for long repetitive commands:
    /permissions player setgroup <playerName> VIP
    /vip <playerName>
  • Combine multiple commands into one simple command
  • Compatible with your existing permissions/plugin commands!
  • Supports partial player name lookups (ie "e0n" to find "Ne0nx3r0")


  1. Add BetterAlias.jar to your plugins directory
  2. Once loaded an aliases.yml file will be created
  3. Customize the file and use /bareload to enable the changes.
  4. Use the examples inside aliases.yml to setup aliases for everyone to use! (or add a custom permission node for the command)


See the examples page.

Multiple Commands

Separate multiple commands with dashes (-):

      - /tp !1p !name
      - /kick !1p

The examples file that comes with the plugin includes examples of every type

    How does the "wait" work? Is value kept after restarts, if the wait is still running? What's the biggest wait time allowed?

    @Ne0nx3r0 Hey, Is it possible to add In-Game commands to create alias's but still keep the config part just so if you need to add a quick alias you dont have to go through the config to make it and can just do it ingame?

    @SuperRonanCraft: Go

    1. Essentials doesn't have a /hub command, unless like HubEssentials (just saying).
    2. It does for me, I have it overwriting /spawn from essentials. (not hubessentials or anything like that)

    @Justin330: Go

    I'm sorry that happened, but the permissions in this plugin work fine.

    You must have either put a typo in your aliases file or accidentally given the permission node out. It even purposely prepends "betteralias." to whatever node you specify specifically so you can't accidentally give out a permission a user already had.

    I was using for ranks, until I just reset my permissions...

    and everyone had the ability to set themself to my highest rank... so I guess thats it for me using this plugin for now...

    Can't risk everyone getting that... Ant

    PS: no one had any perms for better alias...

    I don't think so, but I have it and I have no issues.
