Main window


This project uses pure Bukkit API, and as such, is unlikely to break on Bukkit implementations. However, as I am no longer maintaining my Bukkit plugins, if you want to take this up, shoot me an e-mail at lucariatias<at>gmail<dot>com

About Galaxy

Galaxy is a GUI for bukkit. After playing with Swings recently, I felt like creating my own for Bukkit.


  • Adds a GUI to bukkit


Installs just like any other plugin, just drop into your plugins folder and you're ready to go!



Adding support in your own plugin

Add the following code into your plugin to add a "planet" to Galaxy.

if (Bukkit.getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("Galaxy") != null) {
    Galaxy galaxy = (Galaxy) Bukkit.getServer().getPlugin("Galaxy");
    galaxy.addPlanet(new Planet("Planet name", Color.[Colour name, e.g. RED, AQUA, etc], new [Insert the name of your frame here]));

Create a class for your plugin's frame. If you use Eclipse, I reccommend using WindowBuilder.
The class must extend JFrame.
Your plugin.yml must also include:

softdepend: [Galaxy]

or, if Galaxy is a requirement:

depend: [Galaxy]


Repository information:


Dependency information:





The config contains one option: theme. This sets which theme to use, from the themes directory, minus the .yml extension. In theme file, you can set numerous options to change the colours used by Galaxy. The default is "dark". Using a blank file will result in the default Nimbus colours being used. You can see which colours can be set here. Copy the formatting for the dark theme for each colour.

If you do not like the look of Nimbus, you can use the following command line options:

OptionResulting L&F

It should probably be noted that Galaxy is only tested using Nimbus; other L&Fs are not guaranteed to work, an easier way to set L&F may be added in the future if requested.

    This "plugin" is interesting! Worth a try!

    Busy on private projects - please do not contact me for custom things currently.

    Please wait until Galaxy 1.1 is accepted for a fancy new interface.

    @choltfo: Go

    That's actually not a bad idea, and not very hard to pull off. I'm surprised people are still interested in this project, I was thinking of doing a full rewrite and making it look pretty. I've been really busy with exams and such, and when I do get time to program it's usually for Gildorym now, but that would be a fun side project when I can. Thanks.

    Hey there Lucariatias.

    I have a suggestion.

    As hard as this would be, I think it would be possible to make an addition to this where you can change YAML settings for plugins in a GUI form. I have considered making something like this, but lack the skills.

    Anyways, that would be awesome if you could pull it off. (Good luck.)
