[edit] What is the BukkitWiki?

The BukkitWiki is the official home of the Bukkit documentation and other help related information. As this is a wiki, anyone within the community is free to contribute information to it. By contributing to the wiki, you agree to release your writing/articles to the Bukkit Organisation to be freely modified and used wherever we deem necessary without any attribution of credit apart from the wiki Recent Changes log. While we value contributions made by the community, plastering credit all over content you've added creates clutter and makes the wiki look messy.

[edit] What is the difference between Bukkit and CraftBukkit?

Bukkit is the developer API, while CraftBukkit is a mod for the official Minecraft server that implements the Bukkit API.

Basically, Bukkit is what plugin developers work with to bring you those cool, new features that make your server awesome.

CraftBukkit is what we've made so that you can use those plugins with the official Minecraft server.

[edit] Where can I get it?

The latest Recommended Build of CraftBukkit can be found at dl.bukkit.org. Take a look at Setting up a server to get started.

From dl.bukkit.org you can also access beta and development builds by clicking the Alternate Versions link or at www.dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/

[edit] What is the difference between the Recommended, Beta, and Development builds?

A recommended build has met our highest requirements and testing for release and we believe it to be bug-free. A beta build is considered stable but has not received the amount of testing a recommended build needs. A development build is any changes in between the other two types of builds. These can be highly stable or highly unstable. See this post by EvilSeph for more information on the difference between beta and recommended builds.

[edit] Where do I find plugins? or How do I add features to my server?

Plugins can be installed to add new, interesting features to your CraftBukkit powered server. Generally, you just need to find a plugin and add it to your "plugins" directory to install it, but some plugins require extra setup or configuration - see Installing Plugins for more information.

We already have over 10,000 plugins ready to be used and actively maintained and supported which can be found by using our Plugin List Or Bukkit Dev.

[edit] I made a plugin. Where do I submit it?

Create a project page for your plugin at BukkitDev, the community plugin resource site. The system is managed by the BukkitDev Staff. See the Project Submission Guidelines for information on what you should do when submitting.

[edit] How do I get Bukkit source code?

The source code can be found here. You will need Maven3 to build Bukkit.

[edit] How do I rename a command?

Commands can be renamed by creating aliases in the file bukkit.yml or commands.yml

Have a look at Commands.yml for instructions on how to do this.

[edit] How do I customize my server's help pages?

Help can be customized by editing the Help.yml file.
