    The interface for and by the people
    What is it?
    Pail is a Java swing Graphical User Interface designed specifically for bukkit.
    Why is it different?
    • Pail is written as a plugin, meaning the same, simple drag-and-drop install server owners have come to know.
    • Pail uses pure Java and no external libraries, eliminating the need for any dependencies.
    • Pail is designed for bukkit servers, allowing more control than any vanilla server GUI.
    • Pail is extensible! Other plugins can hook into Pail to add their own interfaces, creating a single place for server admins to manage their server and players.
    • Pail is completely cross-platform.
    What can other plugins do?
    Pail opens up many opportunities for plugin developers to take advantage of. Plugins can be written solely to add functionality to Pail, or Pail support can be integrated easily into existing plugins. Just imagine being able to edit your permissions groups, view server performance, or manage your world's economy all from a single interface!

    For Developers:
    You can start developing for Pail now! The API currently consists of several methods for adding your components to the interface. To add a tab for your plugin to the Pail GUI, pass the title of your plugin's tab and the JPanel containing your interface to:​

    PluginManager pm = this.getServer().getPluginManager();
    ((Pail)pm.getPlugin("Pail")).loadInterfaceComponent("Title", new JPanel());
    For more method descriptions, the JavaDoc is available here.

    Just drop Pail.jar into your plugins folder. That's it!

    • Convenient access to player related functions

    wow, this looks nice, a lot smoother looking than most other GUIs i've used, and it's a plugin, most you have to but in the same folder as bukkit.jar, definitely using this. The code is fairly simple as well, and it runs much smoother. The other GUIs i've used take up about as much cpu and ram as 4 people blowing up a mountain with tnt, and yes, i did test that.

    This is amazing. I kind of want to make plugins just for this now... xD

    i'm not quite that good with java yet, but a world management plugin that added a world control tab to it would be kinda nice, i think i might put that in the request forums...I only have one problem with this plugin, it was made on a mac.xD

    Don't worry, I tested it on Linux and Windows too :p

    I'm going to install this proudly and wait for developers to get behind it.

    You should have a tag line.

    Looks & runs great so far :) Really looking forward to the syntax highlighting, will make keeping track of the log a lot easier. Would also be great (via main plugin or additional ones) to allow for filtering by log type (eg. chat, info, warning, error, attempted commands, etc).

    I'm glad everyone likes it so far! Here is an example of Pail integration in another plugin.

    I love it! Let's see some plugins use it now!

    I just finished implementing the show/hiding of tabs created by other plugins in the settings and hopefully 0.3 will be ready tonight.

    What's the size of the "area" given to plugins?

    EDIT: also what's this error about:

    This only supports being run on the same machine as the server, correct? Is a remote client in the works for those of us who have hosted servers, or command line only servers?

    Would love to see this take off, but it needs remote access for it to be useful for quite a few of us.

    @Styx Reborn
    You have about 850x450 pixels to work with.
    As for your exception, make sure to set your list's listmodel to DefaultListModel before trying to manipulate it as one. Like so:
    2. yourList.setModel(new DefaultListModel());
    3. // Manipulate the list data after this

    You're right, remote access would indeed be great. However web programming is not my strength. Hopefully someone else will come along with a plugin to address this.

    How about a task scheduler? like MCAdmin

    The ability to edit plugins on the fly will be epic.

    If you add that, then I would definitely switch. I could switch back to Windows Task Scheduler, but I've only just set up MCAdmin to replace it.

    I believe this is the best place to ask this, what event would I have to pick for the list so I could have options for each world in the list (on the right) - you could choose wich world to edit by clicking it on the list.:D

    Hmm.. My web programming isn't the greatest either, but I know it can't be that difficult to embed a java app in a webpage. Hopefully someone who knows more will take on the challenge.

    What would the icon method be used for :rolleyes:
  29. Offline


    I just included it in case anyone needed block icons to use in their interfaces, since it took quite an effort to get all those images in order lol
