What is PlugMan?

PlugMan is a simple, easy to use plugin that lets server admins manage plugins from either in-game or console without the need to restart the server.


  • Enable, disable, restart, load, reload, and unload plugins from in-game or console.
  • List plugins alphabetically, with version if specified.
  • Get useful information on plugins such as commands, version, author(s), etc.
  • Easily manage plugins without having to constantly restart your server.
  • List commands a plugin has registered.
  • Tab completion for command names and plugin names.
  • Dump plugin list with versions to a file.
  • Permissions Support - All commands default to OP.


/plugman helpShow help information.
/plugman list [-v]List plugins in alphabetical order. Use "-v" to include versions.
/plugman info [plugin]Displays information about a plugin.

Development Builds


Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.


This plugin utilizes Hidendra's Metrics system to gather anonymous usage statistics on the plugin and server it's running on. The following information is sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's Java version
  • Whether the server is on online or offline mode.
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS' version, name, and architecture
  • The core count of the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Opting out of this service can be done by either editing PlugMan's configuration file, or disabling Metrics globally by editing the Metric's configuration file.
