CommandBook adds essential commands for managing your server, from teleportation commands to time changing commands.

  • Modular, and extremely light on your server.
  • Add multiple types of easy-to-use teleportation commands.
  • Change time without having to remember the numbers (/time 3am works)
  • Add support for homes and warps for your players.
  • Change weather with ease.
  • Play with your players using commands like /slap.
  • Ban and kick users that are troublesome.
  • Do more! The list of features is below.
  • Enable features that you need, disable ones that you don't

Disclaimer: These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk. Development builds of CommandBook can be found at our build server,

Thinking about adding cool Redstone features? See CraftBook. Want to protect regions, as well as your server? We recommend WorldGuard.

Getting Started


Bukkit is currently required.

  1. Install WorldEdit first. (DON'T FORGET THIS)
  2. Download CommandBook and install it the same way.
  3. Run your server once to generate the files.
  4. Edit plugins/CommandBook/config.yml to your liking.
  5. Restart the server for the settings to take effect.

You'll have to read the wiki (see below) to find the permissions you need.

Want more features, faster? We need some help with something!


What are the permissions? The commands? Check out the wiki below.

    @LHammonds: Go

    I should note that if you use that, you should disable CommandBook's messaging component, or you will get quite a bit of command/feature collision.
