The bukkit GUI project (BukkitGUI)



Problems? Please read the f.a.q. View frequently asked questions

Bukkitgui v2 is available as beta! You can download it from the files section. You can view the different versions at

The bukkit GUI project - shortened BukkitGUI - is intended to provide server owners with a easy to use, powerful GUI. Except from clearly displaying server information, it also adds some powerful functions, like a task planner, error logger and solver, plugin manager, . At this moment it does only use 30MB of your RAM, and 0% CPU when your server is running.

  • CPU usage may raise when there is a lot of output, like on startup (with many plugins or) reload.


  • Coloured output, colours definable in settings
  • Detailed player list with context menu, quickly apply an action to a player
  • Advanced options to launch bukkit, update bukkit, auto update check for bukkit
  • Automate your server with the task manager
  • Highly precise memory and CPU measurement
  • Low on resources, performance can be adjusted in settings
  • Error logging, searching for the cause of errors, and if possible, solving of errors
  • Tray icon (with support to minimize to tray) and balloon tips
  • Sound when something happen can be activated
  • Rarely/Never breaks on Minecraft/bukkit update
  • Backups (multiple backup definitions possible)
  • Install, update, manage plugins from within the GUI


See the Quick install Guide about how to set it up. Click here to view it.

Remote Server Support

The GUI can also show output and send commands to remote servers. The recommended way to use a remote server is by using JSONAPI. In order for this to work, the JSONAPI plugin should be installed on your server.

This project if freely available, but it takes a lot of time to maintain it and to add additional functions. A lot of functions are using my own scripts on my own (hired) server. So if you like the project and want to support me:

    im sorry for the late response. Running the latest version, updating every time when a update becomes available. Memory usage just keeps getting higher and higher depending on the ammount of time i dont restart BukkitGUI. Perhaps a memoryleak in the taskmanager? Becouse i use multiple instances of bukkitgui, and the ones where i dont use the taskmanager doesnt seem to give problems.

    First thing. THANK YOU I love this project of yours been using it since day one of my server with plugins, love it everything.

    So heres my thing im not the best at it but if someone explains i'll completely understand it, there's a backup section i noticed, is there anyway i can get the task from the GUI to Automatically backup the game. or an Auto save feature. the power went out yesterday, nothing too drastic happened other than i had to redo a few things on the server. just wanted to make it a more secure server experience for my clients.. LOL Clients. players you could say.

    There is no limit on the amount of players. Edit your server setting to raise the maximum number of players. See the Minecraft (Vanilla) / Bukkit / Spigot / ... site on how to do this.

    See this page:

    Both v1 and v2 work in a similar way, and while there are some minor changes (e.g. bukkitgui 2.x has support for Jsonapi Api 1 and 2) it shouldn't be too hard to set up

    I'm working on it, but I have very little time right now. I've already made some code changes since the last release to improve support for java installations in non-default folders, but I'd like to fix server support for spigot etc before pushing a new update :)

    Hello Bertware, any updates on the v2 version?

    What version of the GUI are you using? JSONAPI has 2 api versions, Gui v1.x only supports JSONAPI api version 1.
