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,

Thinking about adding cool Redstone features? See CraftBook. Want to protect regions, as well as your server? We recommend WorldGuard.

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.

    The "Bring" Command is making it impossible for me to use minecraft's "summon" Command, has anyone else run into this?

  • Avatar of AgonCrafter AgonCrafter Apr 30, 2015 at 21:02 UTC - 0 likes

    CommandBook is a very cool plugin, but the messages should be more customisable.

    For example, the "Teleported." after every warp:/

    Is it possible to convert Essentials warps over to Commandbook? I retired Essentials and had a lot of warps set with it and was wondering if there is a quick way to convert them over to Commandbook? Teleporting to each one and setting them all over again could take some time!

    Lol. I still haven't managed to setup so users can make more than one home :P

    Is it possible to limit amount of homes users can set? I don't want the users to be able to set unlimited homes.

    Hi, Is there any way of spawning an ocelot in its cat form with the /spawnmob? Im trying to get a black cat for a player in my server as a xmas gift, but on the wiki, the link to the colors returns a 404 error and i cant seem to find the additional properties of ocelots anywhere... Please help

    SOLVED: I feel totally stupid now... I just tryied again with /spawnmob ocelot:black_cat and it worked. I swear i tried it before and all it appeared was a normal spotted ocelot -.-
