JustAFK brings a simple, multilingual, and powerful AFK (away from keyboard) plugin to Bukkit servers.



To install JustAFK, simply drop the jar file into your server's plugin directory and reload! A configuration file will be automatically created which you can edit to fine-tune your own installation.


As of JustAFK v1.2, you can completely customize the messages associated with JustAFK by editing the generated localization.yml file after loading the plugin. You can use it to simply change the way the messages look, or to translate to another language. This should work with most languages, but you may run into some issues with certain character types. If you have any problems with the plugin after doing a translation please let me know in the comments below.

If you'd like to contribute your translation for JustAFK, please let me know and I'll work with you to get it included as a download alongside the plugin. Thanks!
