Help support development of Notifications: Donate
Current donations: 0


Shows great Bukkit desktop notifications! Also lets plugins show their own messages if they support it. If you want a plugin to show messages on the desktop, just ask the plugin developer to implement Notifications! ;)

What does it do

  • Shows notifications on the desktop (screen)
  • Built-in notifications for players joining/leaving (configurable!)
  • Allows plugins to show their own messages with colors (configurable!)
  • You can also configure some visual options for the notifications
  • It works on MAC too! :D


The configuration has help and is very self-explanatory.

API for plugin developers

  • API Javadocs here!
  • VERY easy example code here!

Plugins that use Notifications (and that you should check out! :D)

Dev builds

Submit suggestions and bugs here!!

If people can donate to your server, please support :)


This plugin uses MCStats to collect information about plugin usage. Of course, this is strictly anonymous, and you can easily opt out via plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml. The NSA isn't watching your server ;) You can of course see for yourself what data is collected on the MCStats site, just the basic stuff: how many servers, how many players, which Bukkit version, etc.

    I used to use this when I first started running servers years ago and loved it. I'm wondering if the author (or anyone) has ever considered creating something like it for remote computers.. EG minecraft is installed on a box, maybe in your house, maybe hosted, doesn't matter, runs a plugin that waits for connection from a 'client'. A client machine (your daily rig, your office machine, whatever it may be that is NOT the same system as the minecraft server) runs a simple java app (so it's cross-platform friendly) which you configure to tell it what IP/port (or multiple servers even!!) and probably a configured user/pass for security and works the same as this plugin currently does. That would be sweet.

    Hello! Love the plugin so far! Just a question, can you add a permission so ONLY the people with notifications.get or something get the notifications?

    This is darn awesome for home-run servers, whether small or industrial sized. As a developer I may implement API for this in some of my plugins, especially if this becomes more widely used. Honestly, looking at this, I feel like more people should get it :)

    Maybe it got open source some day? It'll be great to see how it works, really!
