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.

If you want to start RemoteToolkit using the GUI, do the following: -Set the server type to bukkit -Select the remote toolkit jar file -Enter the following custom switch: "user:pass" without the ""

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:

    You can manually get spigot using buildtools. For more information and help on this, check out their forums, wiki and IRC channel :) i'm looking for ways to implememt this "spigot install" into the gui, but it's complicated concerning legal issues

    Hi, I hate to ask a question by means of a reply, but there are no forums that i could find fo this software so that's it. Scince BUkkit has been taken down by DCMA (last I checked) as well as spigot is there no way to actually use the plugins one download's from this software? Or am I an idiot and missing something entirely?

    v2.x mostly provides better server support right now, it's better coded meaning more servers can be supported etc.
    For example both JsonApi 1 and 2 are way better supported, server output is handled a lot better, performance is increased, ..

    More features are to be added to get it on par with v1.x, though I don't have that much time right now. Also, the whole bukkit DCMA thing hit right when v2.x was being developed, so it's been unsure for a long while :) It's mostly released for the people who need more server support, or need to fix issues with v1.x that can't be fixed in the old version.

    It's been a while indeed since the plugin manager got a review/update, I'll see if I can focus on it for next update :)

    Thanks for the feedback!

    @grdgyyr: Go

    It can run any minecraft server :)

    @chsedv: Go It's a really weird issue, I'll check it out when I have time

    what is your goal from the regular Bukkitgui v1.8.0.541 for 1.8.1

    to the new 2.0 ive used both , and i personally still like the better. although the 2.0 looks a lot better the 2.0 does not have all the same options available that the provides. example (right clicking in the installed plugins area in the gives you more options to choose from in which i love those options and the 2.0 doesnt.) yes i know is only in beta,.. and no im not trolling i like to help out and point out things others might not. also like to test.

    other than that I LOVE your work keep up thank you for this GUI its amazing....

    @chsedv: Go

    there are ALWAYS messages in the console when a player logs in. Do you see " [INFO] Bertware[/] logged in with entity id 214 at ([world]52.5, 64.0, 238.5) ", or something that looks like it?

    @chsedv: Go

    It works fine for me: 21:40:20 [INFO] Bertware[/] logged in with entity id 214 at ([world]52.5, 64.0, 238.5) and 21:40:21 [INFO] Bertware lost connection: Server closed 21:40:21 [INFO] Bertware left the game.

    are all detected and handled correctly. What output do you see when someone logs in? (like the first message I posted)
