What's Inside?


This project has now been taken over by iKeirNez, who will continue work on CommandsEX in the same fashion I did - and even better! It was a pleasure to create this tiny little thingy for you guys. Have some great Minecraft days in there and see you all in another life :) zathrus_writer

Build your very own plugin set - Lego style!

If you ever needed a single function but had to download a massive plugin that contained it, you will probably know the feeling. It could be hard to pick up the right plugin-set for a server with all the plugins currently in existence. Especially since many of them conflict with each other.

That is the idea behind CommandsEX project - to allow server administrators to choose which commands and functions they really need and let them trash all the rest.

More information


CommandsEX uses standard config.yml file, located in CommandsEX folder in your plugins directory. Options in the configuration file are clearly commented and their list is also present in the Configuration section of the plugin Wiki.

Additionally, CommandsEX allows anybody with the permission to access the /cex command. Some options from the config file are retrievable and can also be updated via this command.

    @RightInTheWhaleHole: Go

    You can't steal something you made and own, if you check the source code you will realize it is all property of this team. Also, this has always had some functionality that essentials has not. I bet all developers involved (including those who work on essentials) would be pleased if you kept your rude comments off Bukkit and BukkitDev, as we all spend a great deal of time to provide software to you - the server owner - absolutely free of charge.

    It's been awhile since I've worked on this but if I remember correctly there is too much code that breaks with Bukkit updates in there currently so I doubt it'll work. I lost interest in this awhile ago and wanted more time to spend on other projects. Sorry.

    Guys, the plugin has not been abandoned. It will most likely be updated in the future, but for now we are all working on other projects. Give us some time to get back to this later.

    @iKeirNez: Go

    I think he means when you create a command with the .txt file, can you add a permission node or is there already a permission node for the command you create?
