Pail logo

Pail is a Java swing Graphical User Interface designed specifically for Bukkit. Pail opens up many opportunities for plugin developers to take advantage of. Plugins can be written solely to add functionality to Pail, or Pail support can be integrated easily into existing plugins. Just imagine being able to edit your permissions groups, view server performance, or manage your world's economy all from a single interface!

Why is Pail different?

  • Pail is written as a plugin, meaning the same, simple drag-and-drop install server owners have come to know.
  • Pail uses pure Java and no external libraries, eliminating the need for any dependencies.
  • Pail is designed for bukkit servers, allowing more control than any vanilla server GUI.
  • Pail is extensible! Other plugins can hook into Pail to add their own interfaces, creating a single place for server admins to manage their server and players.
  • Pail is completely cross-platform.


Just drop Pail.jar into your plugins folder. That's it!


  • Convenient access to player related functions
  • Interface for editing server settings
  • Command buffer to recall recent console commands by pressing up and down
  • Waypoint system for teleporting players
  • Much more!


  • Pail - Reopens the Pail GUI through the console

    New update is on the way, but I just realized there is a flaw with it! You can see the ticket here.

    Please update. My server practically relies on this plugin.

    After a few months of operating normally, I'm starting to experience issues as described in this ticket once again.

    I've still yet to know what's causing it, or even what's correlating with it. It just seems to happen on and off at random intervals. Just a random thought, but could this have to do with using CraftBukkitUpToDate in conjunction with Pail?

    Sure, I'd love to include my server IP here. But it's under construction, and I wouldn't want to get sued for players wandering inside and getting hit by a random beam of steel floating about. And no, I doubt plugins would make very good lawyers either. I've never seen a plugin that forced you to sign a contract do so well.

    Hello when I installed this plugin it worked well.

    Now when I open it the plugin's console (the white one) opens but I can't use it, I mean that I see it on the bottom bar but when I click it it doesn't show up.

    Sorry for my bad english.

    EDIT: I've been trying things and I thinks reinstalling the server and such and I think that happens when I stop the server using the original command console, then pail seems to not close correctly and when I run it again the Pail console just doesn't show up correctly.

    EDIT2: Hmm is not that, I dunno, now works after reinstalling the server.

    That's kind of sad... It used to not be that intensive.
