Version: 1.19.5 PLEASE USE BUKKIT-DEV FORUM FOR DISCUSSION/HELP http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/permissionsex/ THANKS IN ADVANCE. PermissionsEx (PEX) is a new permissions plugin, based on Permissions ideas and supports all of its features. But PEX is more! It offers different backends, powerful ingame management, fine grained restrictions for world modification. Current features Bukkit Permissions (SuperPerms) compatible. Several backend support. Currently bundled backends is File (YAML) and SQL (MySQL, SQLite). Also it's possible to add your own. YAML backend, with new, fully rethinked, config schema. Now all user, groups and their permissions are stored in one file - permission.yml. BTW file name is adjustable too. SQL backend, most delicious. Currently MySQL and SQLite supported, but other DB (like Postgre) are possible too. PEX deploys the DB scheme (tables and initial data) automatically. This means, that you only need to provide data on how to connect to the db, everything else PEX will handle by itself. Flexible architecture and API - you can change a lot programmatically. Compatibility layer with TheYeti's Permissions (2.7.4) (as a separate part of the plugin). In most cases plugins, which use Permissions, will alsowork with PEX also. Rich chat/console command interface. You can do almost everything ingame. Command list below. Modifyworld - Embedded restrictions mechanism (we call it "modifyworld"), which provides the possibility to control players abilities, such as destroying/placing blocks, riding carts/boats or even getting spotted by mobs and much more. Disabled by default. Multigroup inheritance. User, as well as Group, can be member of several groups. And inherit their permissions, options and prefix/suffix. Permissions based upon Regular Expressions. This mean you can use regular expressions. Example: modifyworld.blocks.(destroy|place).(3|12) - this permission allow place or destroy only sand (12) or dirt (3) blocks. There is still limitation on dot usage in your regexps - dots are escaped by default. Multiworld permissions. Just don't specify world and permission would work in any world. Multiworld inheritance. You can inherit different groups in different worlds. Easy migration from Permissions 2.x. Converter for both YAML and SQL are embedded into PermissionsCompat. Just use simple instruction. Perfomance friendly. Low-level caching helps alot when you have 100+ online users Promotional/Demotional system. You can assign ranks to groups and promote/demote users to higher/lower ranked group. World-inheritance - permissions/option of one world can be inherited by another world. Timed Permissions - you can give user permission only for some amount of time. Chat Manager - small chat plugin, bundled with PEX. With prefixes/suffiex and colors. Check wiki for more details.
