    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
    • Interface for editing server settings

    • Searchable console (with regular expression support)
    • Much more!

    I like the GUI but does it have to have CMD running behind it? Also do you think that it would be possible in the future to have multiple servers running from the same GUI or maybe add tabs for them?

    For everyone having the issue with pail!!!!! :))

    1. Go into your plugin folder
    2. And then your pail folder
    3. Change the name of your config.yml to setting.yml.

    Start your server and watch it work :)))

    Name it: settings.yml

    I keep getting stuck in the command prompt where it says Setting Properties.
    EDIT-i've tried creating a file called settings.yml, but my text document saves as settings.yml.txt
    EDIT-i created a yml file with notepad++ and saved in pail directory, but it still isn't working

    Alright, in the morning I'll have to find a way to merge the 0.7.2 features back in.
  22. Offline


    Which features? It should have everything unless you removed them from the official release?

    @escape the amount of downloads compared to the bug reports is silly though... Completely silly.

    EDIT: Also, an idea for you! Instead of having bitly point to dropbox, point to the dev.bukkit url! (It will track downloads on bitly and dev.bukkit!)

    and thanks for the fix. (works fine now)

    Do you use local settings for building the name of the backup?
    You should replace it with underscore or, cause when I try to backup my world, the name is like ""
    with : which are not available for any filename (Win7 - German)

    @Ajster1989 Yah I read it, but your post wasn't outstanding enough, so noone would have found it. For that I tried to make it even bigger :)

    Noted, thank you.

    EDIT: and will be fixed in next version.
