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

    This plugin doesn't use any NMS code... I would venture to guess there's a syntax error in your aliases.yml

    Is there any intention of updating this to craftbukkit 1.7.9 R0.2? It would be great if this is the case, because the plugin generates errors at the moment (With the suggestion that its likely out of date) And I'd love to use it, error free, in the current build for my server.

    @Alster551: Go

    You have to have the number as 0 instead of 1 and have nothing on that line. So move /warp UHC down a line with the dash like all the others

    @tobamai: Go

    You could have the command run from the console so its "console /kick !1"

    Is it possible to create sub commands? For example, I'm making a ban system where if a moderator types '/b list' it will show them a list of reasons for banning a player, and if they type '/b help' it will display a help page. I tried, but apparently you can't have two aliases that start with '/b'.

    Is it possible to execute a command silently? As in suppressing any messages the commands produce? For example, an alias /sk that execute /kick, but if /kick reports "Error: Player not found", don't send that message to the player that executed /sk.

    IO have this config, but when i type the command it says unknown command, and when i type something after the command, it only does the first command on the list:

    all the commands work seperately, just not when in the bettealias plugin.

      permission: start
      1: /warp UHC
        - wait 5 /tpall
        - wait 6 /spreadplayers 0 0 0 999 false @a
        - wait 7 /freeze all
        - wait 8 /tella &3&lThe game will begin in 60 seconds
        - wait 68 /unfreeze all
        - wait 69 /tella &3&lThe game has begun! Type /rules for a list of the rules!

    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?
