    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

    Hey you should make a tab for like the whitelist where you could add people to it easier, like just press a button that says Add Player and a input box comes up and you type their name and it adds them:p

    Would you know how to re-set up java, mine the jar files are listed as jar files

    WHat is the difference between Pail and Advanced Pail?

    Oh well, I guess those of us who want to be able to access our server console over ssh won't be able to get a gui for our server.

    @exrook Remote access is something we're working on from several angles and hopefully we'll have full compatibility by the time pail 1.0 comes around.

    Is there a way to run my server with more RAM using this wrapper? When I ran a batch file on the Craftbukkit.jar my server would be given 2G, but now that I use Pail it seems to only detect the bare minimum. It's probably a really simple solution, but I am really bad at things like this. :(

    Ok, thanks.
  8. Offline


    @Sherryberry I'm not sure what you mean since pail doesn't do anything to affect the memory assigned. Do you mean you're using something else to measure RAM usage and it's showing a different value than it should be?
  9. Offline


    Sorry, I probably could have explained that better. :D

    I just checked the server and it's running with a max memory of 2031MB... but AdvancedPail is only saying I have a max of 274. I guess that's what was confusing me, but that's probably something I have to ask the Dev of AdvancedPail about. :| I'm allll mixed up, haha.

    Oh yeah ha, I would go ask feildmaster since that's his plugin. It's still in development so I'm sure there's still some bugs to be worked out.

    It gets the total amount currently used by the server. That number will raise based on the needs of the server.

    That makes sense! Thanks so much! :D

    @feildmaster Too bad bukkit doesn't let you get the command line args so you could know the real total.

    @escape : It shows the real total when you hover over memory. =P

    say well in the default console (Ubuntu) is peoples chat is colored (iChat) it shows the color of the chat in the console. and the Reload Complete message is colored green, [warning] messages are white but that would be a good idea making them red and [Info] mabey could be baby blue and so on like you said above
  19. Offline


    @thestriker095 : That's too much color... Why does a console need to show all that?

    Though, maybe escape is already planning it... who knows.

    lol i just noticed i put "say" in front of my message XD

    Hello, Pail 0.5 Beta is great! other that a few bugs with the auto scroll, if messages/errors are sent rapidly is stops scrolling down.

    @escape : Maybe I shouldn't process the scroll event in the "later" function.

    EDIT: Try taking the entire "later" out escape. What happens?

    did you close pail before shutting down/closing the server?

    (I think that's why it happens... Will look into it farther tomorrow)
  25. Offline


    Would Java allow you to iconify the command prompt and/or the Pail Server Manager to system tray? Or at least minimize one, the other, or both automatically?

    I realize you can't hide the command window as stated previously.

    Also, please allow resizing of Pail window and add color coding for key strings such as red for "[SEVERE]" and green for "[INFO]"

    Very nice, and I see you mad it with a mac?
    Nice, now I know it also works with mac <3

    Does this happen every time it loads? Does it load normally after this? If there's a file called 'pailPersist.tmp' in your main bukkit folder, delete it and start pail again.

    Hi there, new to all of this. Trying to use pail with my server and I'm afraid that it's not working for me.

    I start the bukkit server and pail throws an exception error even when there are no other mods. Currently using Archlinux x86_64.

    When starting pail it produces this as an error:

    11:03:17 [INFO] Preparing spawn area: 73%

    I currently have both JRE and JDK installed, am I missing something that windows users would have to make this work? Please help, because this thing looks pretty nice.

    @ShoeUnited What craftbukkit build are you running?
  30. Offline


    This is what I'm using, is it different from craftbukkit maybe? Maybe that's where I'm going wrong. >,<

    Name           : bukkit
    Version        : 0.3-2
    Edit: Ah here no ->

    This server is running Craftbukkit version git-Bukkit-0.0.0-981-g13441f8 (MC: 1.7.3)

    @ShoeUnited When you start your server, you should see something like this in the console:
    13:51:11 [INFO] This server is running Craftbukkit version git-Bukkit-0.0.0-980-g4ed23b1-b1060jnks (MC: 1.7.3)
    Post that.
