The bukkit GUI project (BukkitGUI)



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

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:

    Banned player list and white listed players etc. don't work in this version anymore.
    This is because the changes in Bukkit.
    The basic functions do work.
    Other options: please wait for the updated version.

    When ever I start the server with this it doesn't show the banned players, players online, white listed... Etc.. I don't know how to download the shit you said in the FAQ it just sends me to a page with some text on it. Doesn't help me one bit.

    Hello I am using bukkit gui on my vps how can i make the bukkit gui restart my server after the server crash?

    If everything goes as planned, there should be a limited test version of the new GUI available in a week.

    don't expect groundbreaking UI changes, as most of the changes are under the hood. (Better performance, code can easily be updated/maintained/extended. Everyone can join and create their own tabs using the code on github)

    I just tested and had no issue. Just open eula.txt (new in minecraft 1.7.10), set eula=true and you should be good to go.

    An Eula from the GUI or? make sure you're running the latest version of the GUI.

    I'm having an issue with EULA. When trying to run a 1.7.10 server using the gui, upon launch I get an issue with the EULA, however when I run the server without the gui it runs fine.

    Any idea?

    I'm searching people to do the following:

    • Creating a new backup tab/engine
    • Creating a new port forwarder/manager
    • Creating a plugin config editor
    • Optional: Creating a web interface

    Everything's in C#, .NET 3.5, for the next update

    I'm working on a nrw version, but due to health issues development is going rather slow. You can find bukkitgui2 on github, I'll see if i can release a basic version already.
