Help support development of Notifications: Donate
Current donations: 0


Shows great Bukkit desktop notifications! Also lets plugins show their own messages if they support it. If you want a plugin to show messages on the desktop, just ask the plugin developer to implement Notifications! ;)

What does it do

  • Shows notifications on the desktop (screen)
  • Built-in notifications for players joining/leaving (configurable!)
  • Allows plugins to show their own messages with colors (configurable!)
  • You can also configure some visual options for the notifications
  • It works on MAC too! :D


The configuration has help and is very self-explanatory.

API for plugin developers

  • API Javadocs here!
  • VERY easy example code here!

Plugins that use Notifications (and that you should check out! :D)

Dev builds

Submit suggestions and bugs here!!

If people can donate to your server, please support :)


This plugin uses MCStats to collect information about plugin usage. Of course, this is strictly anonymous, and you can easily opt out via plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml. The NSA isn't watching your server ;) You can of course see for yourself what data is collected on the MCStats site, just the basic stuff: how many servers, how many players, which Bukkit version, etc.

    Maybe it got open source some day? It'll be great to see how it works, really!

    Hey, Im using this plugin. I am with HostHorde and have downloaded the plugin but when a player joins or leaves nothing happens? It is 1.8 BTW.

    Does still work in 1.8? I don't get any notifications is there a client I need to install to use this?

    CAn you make it so we can give our users an executable file which has a unique id and then we can send messages to these unique ids??? That would be awesome if you could manage that!

    public void onPlayerFartEvent(PlayerFartEvent e){
    	e.getPlayer.sendMessage(ChatColor.DARK_RED + "You Farted!");

    Um, would it be possible for you to make a exe or something for us to download so we can have it on our computer? I buy a dedicated server and host on that for better performance so it just doesnt make sense to have it pop up there.

    I installed your plugin after seeing the ChestShop-Notifications for it, but ran into a problem..

    My host (MCProHosting) runs the newer Java 8, and I'm guessing there is an incompatitability with your plugin and Java8.. I get this message in the console:

    [21:59:50] [Server thread/INFO]: [Notifications] Unexpected exception occured while showing a notification titled '<MyServerNameHere_EditedForTheInnocent>'!
    [21:59:50] [Server thread/INFO]: [Notifications] Your GUI is not compatible with Java swing/awt. Sorry :(
