CommandBook adds essential commands for managing your server, from teleportation commands to time changing commands.

  • Modular, and extremely light on your server.
  • Add multiple types of easy-to-use teleportation commands.
  • Change time without having to remember the numbers (/time 3am works)
  • Add support for homes and warps for your players.
  • Change weather with ease.
  • Play with your players using commands like /slap.
  • Ban and kick users that are troublesome.
  • Do more! The list of features is below.
  • Enable features that you need, disable ones that you don't

Disclaimer: These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk. Development builds of CommandBook can be found at our build server,

Getting Started


Bukkit is currently required.

  1. Install WorldEdit first. (DON'T FORGET THIS)
  2. Download CommandBook and install it the same way.
  3. Run your server once to generate the files.
  4. Edit plugins/CommandBook/config.yml to your liking.
  5. Restart the server for the settings to take effect.

You'll have to read the wiki (see below) to find the permissions you need.

Want more features, faster? We need some help with something!


What are the permissions? The commands? Check out the wiki below.

    PLEASE keep this plugin updated. I don't want to have to use this stupid bloatware called Essentials.

    I just installed the latest build you can find here (2 months old as of the time I'm posting this) and keeping my fingers crossed.

    @Vitalbra: Go

    Hey! Without the files, I can infer that it has integrated itself into the code of the server, like the ScriptCraft plugin I use for my own creations. So even if you delete it, you'll still have a partial version of it within your server source code. Try deleting your server files, redownload everything, and reload all your worlds, plugins, etc. Just do not reload the additional files it may have created (ex: folders named "command_book addons")

     I'm having some issues disabling CommandBook muting and replacing it with my chat plugin's, is it possible to disable it? I've done it on the disabled components, but it still doesn't seem to help, anyone have an answer to this issue?

    @seema23: Go

    I'm "working" now for a week with just a recompiled version of CommandBook (latest "version" of code on Github) and the latest WorldEdit Dev Build without any issues. So please tell me what is broken.

    Do you updated WorldEdit to the latest dev build? (for 1.9 Support)

    Thanks SalC1 that's saved the server from a new map for a while. Works great.

    I have been using CommandBook for my server for 4 years and I just updated to 1.9. Essentials is NOT AN OPTION at all for me due to my server setup. Many things like /fly and errors every time a player joins are evident when you run this with 1.9. Does anybody have any alternative to this plugin that does not include Essentials?


    Attention everyone running 1.9! After a while of being frustrated and clicking links, I have found a build that was released 10 months ago that will work with 1.9 without errors. Make a backup of your config before updating because it will be reset and you must reconfigure it. I am still hoping for someone to maybe create an alternative to this plugin due to the developer stopping development on this plugin. Anyways, here's the link:

    guess i have to switch to crappy essentials then

  • Avatar of Schneidertm Schneidertm Mar 01, 2016 at 19:59 UTC - 0 likes

    This plugins works on 1.9 but it needs to be recompiled. But I think the support is almost dropped since dark arc quitted development.
