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:

    @Bertware: Go

    maybe bring back in the console tab where you just check the box and you can chat from server.

    @T_X_T: Go

    It's a restriction in the minecraft server. The plugins folder has to be in the same folder the server was started from, in this case the GUI folder (else it'd be the folder of your .bat file)

    @chsedv: Go

    Some changes have been made to significantly improve memory usage, and to tweak CPU usage. Maybe one of those broke it. As long as I don't have the exact login message you see in the console, I can't investigate it.

    @Bertware: Go

    wait are you asking or telling, and the gui makes a plugins folder which would prohibit me from having the plugins folder per say ..

    @T_X_T: Go

    You're using the plugins in the same folder as the gui.
    /c/v2/bukkitgui2.exe will use /c/v2/plugins/ as plugins folder.

    @Bertware: Go

    will do but i was wondering why it only shows up when i use the v 2 gui and not the v1 gui

    @T_X_T: Go

    That's a plugin or server issue, not the gui!
    Check your plugins, try running without plugins and re-enable them one by one.

    @T_X_T: Go

    If you find issues, please feel free to report them here:

    This way they remain organized, which allows me to process them faster :)

    Sure, feedback / constructive criticism is always welcome, it helps to decided what parts need more attention :) From a developer's point of view, everythings normal and easy because you placed every button yourself, and came up with all the logic yourself, but we (developers in general) still need feedback from users to get real expieriences and know what problems/trouble occur, what's good and what's not :)
