The bukkit GUI project (BukkitGUI)



Problems? Please read the f.a.q. View frequently asked questions

Bukkitgui v2 is available as beta! You can download it from the files section. You can view the different versions at

The bukkit GUI project - shortened BukkitGUI - is intended to provide server owners with a easy to use, powerful GUI. Except from clearly displaying server information, it also adds some powerful functions, like a task planner, error logger and solver, plugin manager, . At this moment it does only use 30MB of your RAM, and 0% CPU when your server is running.

  • CPU usage may raise when there is a lot of output, like on startup (with many plugins or) reload.


  • Coloured output, colours definable in settings
  • Detailed player list with context menu, quickly apply an action to a player
  • Advanced options to launch bukkit, update bukkit, auto update check for bukkit
  • Automate your server with the task manager
  • Highly precise memory and CPU measurement
  • Low on resources, performance can be adjusted in settings
  • Error logging, searching for the cause of errors, and if possible, solving of errors
  • Tray icon (with support to minimize to tray) and balloon tips
  • Sound when something happen can be activated
  • Rarely/Never breaks on Minecraft/bukkit update
  • Backups (multiple backup definitions possible)
  • Install, update, manage plugins from within the GUI


See the Quick install Guide about how to set it up. Click here to view it.

Remote Server Support

The GUI can also show output and send commands to remote servers. The recommended way to use a remote server is by using JSONAPI. In order for this to work, the JSONAPI plugin should be installed on your server.

This project if freely available, but it takes a lot of time to maintain it and to add additional functions. A lot of functions are using my own scripts on my own (hired) server. So if you like the project and want to support me:

    If I'm accessing this file through a FTP program (because I am using a VPS to host my server), is it still possible to use this plugin?

    I use a dark windows theme and so I went to change the console font color, but when I select my new font color the following happens; First off the color in the setting shows the colors I have chosen so that works great, However the console still remains this unreadable dark blue. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hello. This is a great application. Thank you so much for all your hard work :)

    I would like to request additional functionality for the backup feature. I think it would be great if we had the option to use 7zip, instead of the native compression tool for Windows.

    Further more, it could be useful to add a configuration for the amount of backups to keep (for example, keep the five most recent backups)
