Amazing, stylish minecraft server control panel. Very easy to set up and use compared to other alternatives.

I very much like the fact that it is open source and has no player limits and/or server limits unlike other alternatives.

The developer is very active and always open to ideas. When I first found this server, I asked if it could run on macOS and very quickly the dev jumped in and explained that he didn't have the hardware to test if it could work on macOS. I offered to help and test it and now there is a document stating how to run it on macOS and get it working.

Great Minecraft Syscontrol Panel!!

I've always thought an app or a service is as good as its developer or owner.

Crafty has that in bundles. It is well designed and the developer is extremely active constantly building on top of it.

The server is extremely well documented and it works on macOS, Linux, and Windows.
@ptarrant is pretty awesome and if you ask nicely he will add features to the build and offer excruciating testing on the build so what is put out there is cleaner of bugs than other builds.

Crafty is free and Open Source.

Since 5 years ago, I have been running different Minecraft servers over the years, mostly on windows until this year. For me, it is essential that I have an easy to use GUI for monitoring things like player count and server status. When I moved to Linux, I looked long and hard for a good alternative to BukkitGUI, which I used on windows. Crafty was the only application with all the time-saving features that allow me to run my Minecraft server, and over the last couple of months running it many new features have been added! The developer is extremely responsive to their discord, and several of my requested features have been added to the application.
TLDR: If you are Linux, there is no better alternative to Crafty Controller, and even if you are on windows, you should definitely strongly consider crafty.

It's an able and constantly growing Minecraft Server Manager. It's light and simple to use. The Development is active and the developer responsive and receptive to feature suggestions. As the site states, it is and always will be 100% free. I can say it's my favorite by far.

It supports any minecraft server that operates by jar file and can be run on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.

Crafty Control is pretty easy to get setup, whether you're on Windows or Linux, so even novice server admins can learn how to use this. I found everything to be pretty intuitive, nothing was particularly difficult to get up and running. One thing I noticed was that it is good for novice and advanced users. Since it is open source, you can modify to your own taste (as long as it doesn't violate any licenses of course). Having a web GUI is definitely very handy, overall this is a well-rounded wrapper with many functionalities and potential. The only small gripe that I have is that there is no automatic restart functionality ok the event of a crash, but this can be easily supplemented with some basic scripts.

before crafty controller we were using a server-side program that caused more headaches and server recovers then it was worth we have been through many server wrappers and managers and until we found crafty nothing provided what we were looking for

crafty comes out of the box with speed security and simplicity in mind
and with the web management interface, I can manage our servers from anywhere.

As a gaming network that currently hosts 16 Minecraft realms on a public network
crafty has changed the quality of life for me and our admins by providing a simple but powerful interface to manage our servers remotely and control letting us control what staff members are permitted to perform what actions in the control panel

and keeping security a #1 concern is something we value more than anything
craft is built from the ground up with security and data protection in mind
and with a developer that listens to and works directly with the user's both small and full-blown networks crafty is changing and growing every day.

in conclusion, I have watched crafty go from a small single server management idea to a full-blown Minecraft management SYSTEM because server manager and wrapper just don't sum up everything craft currently does and certainly cant cover what it's going to do in the future.
i for one am happy to be here and get to watch it grow and become the amazing thing it will :D
