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

    Project Kanto - Recreating the Kanto region from Pokémon in Minecraft! So, what's so special about that? Well, it's based on the anime/TV show and not the game! Wow, that sounds so cool can I help? SURE! Apply here at our website

    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?

    Antarctic Special Operations, home of the buggiest (modded) server ever! With the most incompetent admin (me) also! Currently unplayable on survival due to construction accidents involving but not limited to a rebar in the face. I'll consider opening for Beta testing as soon as I overcome my incompetence. <3
