    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!

    The colors... depends on escape

    that's... strange. also, reread the above post. I edited it without realizing you posted.

    (Can you try one more thing for me? The one that escape has in the thread, download and try that again)

    that means it's the "start" of today.... =P

    Heh. I had no idea about Up/Down xD

    Is this plugin compatible with GNU screen? It seems like a nice plugin, but whenever I try starting my server with it, I either get an exception, or the server freezes up (using no CPU).
  13. Offline


    Never tested it with GNU Screen, nor have I ever used GNU screen.

    If it doesn't work for you now, Then I suppose it doesn't work.

    Hello, The auto scroll down function is still a bit buggy it work sometimes... but not all times.
  15. Offline


    It turns out this is a bug with Java, and thus difficult for us to fix at this point.

    @escape and @feildmaster: @Timberjaw already has scroll and syntax highlighting working in Crafty. Maybe you three could collaborate as PailTeam? :)
  17. Offline


    @thestriker095 and @Southpaw018 : I have already made a dynamic scroll box. :)

    It only scrolls when you are at the bottom of the scroll bar. (So you can read old text without being pushed to the bottom)

    Will come out soon. (Not worrying about colors at the moment... BUT)

    I do have a question about that.
    "What exactly do you need to be colored?"

    Is it... just the [info], [warning] and so on?
    or do you want the messages to go with the color as well...? I don't see the point of either of them myself though.
  18. Offline


    I do think it'd make it easier to read myself. I did have an almost-working solution waaaaaay back at 0.2, but there were some problems and I put it on he back burner.
  19. Offline


    I personally think a tab that shows only [WARNING] and [SEVERE] messages would be much more effective than colors but anyway....
  20. Offline


    1. Yay! Thank you! :D

    2. Hmm. Here's what Crafty does, and I really like it.
    [INFO] - Blue
    [WARN] - Yellow
    [SEVERE] and [ERROR] - Red

    Even just that would make the log look a lot better. Could you perhaps also include support for standard MC color codes? (ie &1 for dark blue)

    this sounds kind of interesting...

    Want to code a tabbed filter? :p
  23. Offline


    Personally I think whole tabs would be a bit overboard. Maybe a set of checkboxes for filtering the different levels in the console.
  24. Offline


    would require lots of hashing through the logs...
    Map<String, ConsoleLine>
    string storing time
    consoleline storing... type, full message.
    Or do you mean, "check/uncheck this, and it adds/doesn't add these types to the console"?

    The latter is more feasible.
  25. Offline


    From a usability standpoint, I would vote for filtering checkboxes. If filtering isn't easily possible, I would vote for nothing at all. The tabs would feel really unwieldy.
  26. Offline


    @feildmaster Indeed it would require a lot of overhead, but at the same quite a jump in usability. I'll have to think about it.
  27. Offline


    @Southpaw018 : Which type of filter out of those two did you prefer?

    The first one would have removed all messages that weren't in the filter (and would take more processing time)

    @escape : actually, you don't even need a hashmap... just an array list. But still...

    Yay on the release of 0.5! :)

    Fixed console not scrolling down is totally the wrong way to word it~ :p
    Oh well.

    ouch... completely forgot i had a differently named pail. (freaking hell, did the same thing mine did to you escape. lol)

    I just love this plugin. Now I don't have to type in /give <my name> <id> - because I can just rightclick the user AND you don't have to type an ID, you just choose the item from the list! Best Bukkit GUI that I have seen. I hope ALOT more plugins integrate this. :)

    I got an error, it has pail in it so I am thinking it has something to do with gui, heres error report:

    Wait it looks like there is a typo, on first line right after the getAllowNether() there is a Z...
