A lightweight, easy to extend mineraft server manager

Project description


The Extendable Minecraft Server Manager (EMSM) handles multiple minecraft worlds and server versions. It is completly written in Python and can be easily modified by the user.

The EMSM provides a simple, but powerful and extensive command line interface, which allows to manage your minecraft server easily and automize tasks.

The separation of minecraft worlds and server executables allows to manage several different versions of server (e.g. Vanilla and Bukkit in multiple versions) for different worlds. The EMSM comes with a backup mechanism as one of the core plugins, which can be automated to create periodical backups. It also provides a plugin to check the availability of the server and restart them, if its configured to do so. Another plugin aims at integrating EMSM with init.d to start/stop the server on (re-)boot/shutdown processes.

Get started

Please read the online documentation for a full introduction. I tried to keep it simple and short. The EMSM will be installed in less than 10 minutes.

When you need help, don’t hesitate to create an issue.
