WebGUI preview



A simple plug-in to allow your server operators/moderators to report whatever they do. Supports reporting issues with players, bans, unbans, promotions and demotions.

Every type is color-coded. Issues are yellow, bans dark red, unbans dark green, promotions green and demotions red.

This plug-in runs a very basic HTTP server, only files in the plugins/ModeratorGui/web folder are accessible. To access the web GUI, you connect to port 8273, you have to enter the password specified in config.yml.

A list of ranks can be specified to limit what can be entered when reporting promotions or demotions.

The plugin will try to match usernames to players that have once joined the server with the in-game commands. Ranks will also be matched.

The Web GUI can be modified to your desire, but is limited to how the web server works.

If you find any bugs or issues, or if you have suggestions, please comment explaining the issue or suggestion.

Config variables

The configuration has 2 sections where variables are used, the messages section and the perform section. Here is a list of the variables:

%id% - The id of the report

%target% - The name of the reported player

%reporter% - The name of the reporting player

%reason% - The reason of the report/action

%date% - The date of the report, using the standard ModGui date format

%oldrank% - Only used for promotions and demotions, the old rank of the player

%newrank% - Only used for promotions and demotions, the new rank of the player

Web requests for custom web-pages

All requests start with /GENERATED/ (case-sensitive)

Returns a session that will be used for other requests followed by a list of available ranks sepperated by "/", or "invalid" if the supplied password was incorrect. The password has to be an SHA-256 encrypted string.
Returns a global list of reports, limited to a maximum of 500 results
Returns a list of reports where the reporter is username, limited to a maximum of 500 results
Returns a list of reports where the person being reported is username, limited to a maximum of 500 results
Creates a new report, created by the user bound to the session. previousRank and newRank can be empty if it is not required.

Every mention of request_flags has to be replaced with a type filter. i for issues, b for bans, u for unbans, p for promotions and d for demotions. If you want to get all types you can leave it blank or send ibupd, this means that if any of the above flags are found it will find from all the supplied types. Do note that there are times that only one flag can be set.

Returned lists are in JSON format, a typical list would look like this (only displaying one of each type of report), newest reports are displayed first, the current reports are in no particular order.

[ {
  type: "issue",
  close: false,
  reporter: "adminname",
  reported: "somebaduser",
  time: "05-21-2012",
  reason: "He was being stupid"
}, {
  type: "ban",
  reporter: "adminname",
  reported: "somebaduser",
  time: "05-21-2012",
  reason: "He wanted to get banned"
}, {
  type: "unban",
  reporter: "adminname",
  reported: "somebaduser",
  time: "05-21-2012",
  reason: "He wanted to get unbanned"
}, {
  type: "promote",
  reporter: "adminname",
  reported: "somebaduser",
  time: "05-21-2012",
  reason: "He wanted to get promoted",
  prev: "default",
  new: "admin"
}, {
  type: "demote",
  reporter: "adminname",
  reported: "somebaduser",
  time: "05-21-2012",
  reason: "He was falsely promoted",
  prev: "admin",
  new: "default"
} ]

When a request is made with an invalid session, a 403 - Forbidden error will be supplied. When the server encounters an error, a stack trace is printed to the console and a 500 - Internal Server Error will be supplied.

    Having issues opening the database after I get a total of about either 100 or 127 issues. Is there any way to fix this without wiping the database? BAI1

    No planned UUID implementation support? It'd be quite useful to have. BAI1

    I am so glad I found this! I was about to make my own system from scratch >_>

    If you want to make it more aesthetically pleasing, then try using the Bootstrap html framework. It's minimal work for great looks!

    (Even bukkit uses bootstrap!)

    Why is it when I load the plugin it shows these two messages then stops for 5 minutes, then loads?

    Well, when you connect to a server in minecraft you enter an IP address. Let's think about the imaginary IP address my.server.ip. If you want to access the web gui, you simply open your browser and navigate to http://my.server.ip:8273/ (8273 is the default port number, if you change this in the configuration then you will have to connect to that port.
