    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
    • Command buffer to recall recent console commands by pressing up and down
    • Waypoint system for teleporting players
    • Searchable console (with regular expression support)
    • Much more!
    • Pail - Reopens the Pail GUI through the console

    I just took a look at the source, and unless I'm missing something, this will work fine on 1.2. They're prepared for the transition already. Don't fret.

    its tested on 1.2 R6 bukkit and it not working at all. Error log here

    I really hope it will be updated at least to start with new bukkit build.

    Thnx :)

    tested with:

    [INFO] This server is running CraftBukkit version git-Bukkit-1.1-R6-31-g0545c46-b2032jnks (MC: 1.2.3) (Implementing API version 1.2.3-R0.1-SNAPSHOT)

    Oops. Missed that one. Looks like they need to update their method for getting configurations. I'm not part of the project, but hopefully they will soon.

    When is this going to be updated for minecraft 1.2.3?

    Question: In the advanced tab in pail it says: Nothing to see here, move along... Before it had other options. Is this a bug or something?

    luv it! especialy that it shows the players face next to it. Just a quick question. Do you know when its updating to 1.2?
  14. Offline


    Is there going to be support for 1.2.3? I can't really run my server without it because I don't like the cmd layout :S
  15. Offline


    Hopefully you'll update this to 1.2. I really enjoy using this. I hate the CMD version.

    Just wanted to add something that others might consider leading with:
    Hey, we really appreciate this great plugin and look forward to the time and effort it will take in parsing the new code into an update -- so many of us have grown so accustomed to using it that we've forgotten how bare command line server maintenance can be. Thanks!

    Whenever I start my server (Updated, yes) The Pail Server manager does not appear, and my server (when it says 'Done') there is no connection, and I cannot join the server.
    I have tried Re installing Pail, Is it updated?I have internet connection, and have been able to play minecraft on my server before!
    What do I need to do to get my server to work, allow friends to join, and still have Pail working?
