    I know craftbukkit is used for running the server but I don't get what bukkit does. I mean what is the difference?

    Bukkit is a library where as craftbukkit is a wrapper for the server.

    Don't blame him lol. When I first heard about Bukkit and downloaded it I was wondering why there was 2 jar files. The mod it's self is called Bukkit but the wrapper is called craftbukkit and almost documentation expresses the jar file "craftbukkit" so its not that hard to get a little confused. Its not documented in the "newb friendly install" post or within the wiki either.
     
  5. So what does the bukkit library do? Is that just for plugin development?

    Edit: Nvm read the faq lol. It is indeed the api for development.

    Honestly it should have been named Bukkit and BukkitServer.
