The future of bPermissions

As there is something of a mass exodus of most of the bukkit staff, I'd thought I'd share some words on the future of bPermissions.

Short term, it's looking as if new file approvals are going to take some time, so the best place to get an up to date bPermissions is to look on the jenkins server for unapproved builds.

Mid to long term, unless bukkit gets revived, I hope to port bPermissions to the sponge project once that's in a mature enough state to port a permissions plugin to.

Until there's more details on the future of bukkit / any bukkit alternatives / any bukkit forks, there's not a lot I can do except wait.


Welcome to bPermissions, a Superperms Manager for Bukkit! bPermissions focuses on being unique from the rest of the Permission managers. It's very simple to set up and use, it's lightning fast, fully featured, and has a great support team!

Since codename_B is now focusing on the new 3.x branch of bPermissions, he has handed over control over 2.x to me (rymate1234).

Some features:

  • bPermissions has a gui client specifically designed to make running a server so easy that you'll forget that you ever used any other permissions plugin. Get it here!
  • bPermissions has a unique command structure, never before seen in a permission manager. It's best used for adding lots of nodes to a user or group from the console or in-game, less typing!
  • bPermissions has everything you would expect from a Permissions manager. Prefix and suffix support, inheritance, per-player permissions, multiworld support, promotion/demotion tracks, and even group priorities for multi-group setups.
  • Note - bPermissions only defines prefixes and suffixes. You need a chat plugin such as bChatManager for them to show up in chat.

Commands

Say you have a user called 'Bob' and you want to put him in the group 'admin' and give him the prefix 'awesome'.

  • /world yourmainworld - selects the world "yourmainworld"
  • /user bob - selects the user "bob"
  • /user setgroup admin - set bob's group as "admin"
  • /user meta prefix awesome - set bob's prefix to "awesome"

You can do the same with groups!

  • /world yourmainworld - again, selects the world
  • /group admin - selects the group "admin"
  • /group addgroup moderator - makes the admin group inherit from the moderator group
  • /group meta prefix &c[Admin] - sets the admin prefix to "&c[Admin]"

Some other commands are as follows

  • /permissions (or /bperms,/bp,/p) - general commands for bPermissions are prefixed by this
  • /permissions import pex - import a pex permissions.yml in the pex folder
  • /permissions reload - reloads your bPermissions files
  • /permissions save - if auto-save is false, this saves your perms
  • /permissions backup - backup your permissions
  • /permissions helpme - for the lazy among you, this spews out some basic permissions files into your folder.

In order to use these commands, you'll need the permissions node bPermissions.admin

Want more commands? We have some others over on the commands page. Check 'em out!

World mirroring

Worlds are mirrored like so:

world_mirroring_to: world_mirroring_from
world_nether: world
world_the_end: world

This duplicates the whole config for that world. Currently there's no way to have just the users or the groups mirrored, stay tuned for an update that adds this!

bPermissions and EssentialsChat

Allow me to put this issue to bed. Essentials Chat + bPermissions works for prefix and color.

This guide is for current users of EssentialsChat and want to use bPermissions along with it.

Players have colored rank prefixes and faction chat modes are also colored. All text can be colored by the players too using color codes such as &c.

bPermissions\world\groups.yml ( code snippet )

default: default
groups:
## Peasant ##
  default:
    permissions:
    - group.default
    - group.userannouncer
    - group.userauction
    groups:
    - userannouncer
    - userauction
    meta:
      priority: '100'
## Citizen ##
  rank1:
    permissions:
    - group.default
    - group.rank1
    groups:
    - default
    meta:
      priority: '200'

It has nothing configured for prefix but the group names are important (default, rank1)

Essentials\config.yml ( Code Snippet )

change-displayname: true
#add-prefix-suffix: false
player-commands:
  - chat.color
  - chat.format
  - chat.shout
  - chat.question
chat:
  radius: 0
  group-formats:
    default: '&8&lPeasant &r&8{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    rank1: '&8&lCitizen &r&7{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    moderator: '&e&l[Mod] &r&3{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    admin: '&c&l[Admin] &r&e{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'

Please direct all other Essentials support to their official support networks.

How do I get support?

First, we highly recommend you go read the FAQ page. If the answer isn't there, there's a few options of support.

  • Visit the #bananacode irc channel on irc.esper.net. Just head there, as your question, and wait for someone to help you. It might be a while before you get an answer, so be patient!
  • You can file a ticket. This is recommended if you don't have the time to hang around in the IRC or you have a bug report. Be prepared to check back to the ticket though, and make sure you attach your bPermissions groups and users yml files to the ticket.
  • Comment on the bPermissions main page.

However you choose to get support, "pls dont use txt spk," and make sure you use actual grammar.

I'm a developer!

    @Superboop: Go

    Well I've released a bugfix update, it's available on jenkins and the spigot forums if you do a little googling.

    However until the future is certain there will be no update with new features.

    I don't understand the comments exactly. Will bPermissions be updated, or will it not until some other alternative server mod comes out?

    I already have, but it's against bukkitdev rules to link external downloads :/

    Announcement

    I'm going to push an update sometime this week that changes the internal threading to use the official bukkit scheduler rather than using codename_B's internal thread management system. If this fixes the various issues, I'll start work on a release with UUID compatability.

    ~~ thank you for flying bPermissions ~~

    In order to use these commands, you'll need the permissions node bPermissions.admin

    All permissions for bPermissions use a single node? o.O
    I need to allow my Admins to change users' groups but I don't want anyone other than Owner to modify the groups' permissions or anything else. Any plans to make this possible? Otherwise I'll have to go through setting up yet another permissions system again.

    Edit: Nevermind, I won't be using this. The command structure and permissions don't suite my needs.

    Edit: In fairness, I should state that I was able to find a mention of the 'tracks' permission node for the previous version of bPermissions, but for this version those details are quite lacking.

    @VideoGameBlackBelt: Go

    You need to use a world that is active. So lets say my normal world is called world. then to select a world i type "/w world" If my world is called Paradise I type "/w Paradise"

    So this means if you want to select the nether or end its world_nether world_end

    Hope i helped ;)

    (Commands without the """ ofc. )
