CraftBook requires a version of the Minecraft server that supports the Bukkit API, which includes PaperMC and Spigot. The official Minecraft server is not supported.


Newer versions of CraftBook are available that support the Sponge API, they can be found here.


CraftBook can be downloaded from the EngineHub site.

  1. If you downloaded CraftBook as a ZIP file, extract it to find “CraftBook.jar” inside. Otherwise, you should already have a .jar file.
  2. In your server folder, create a “plugins” folder if one does not yet exist.
  3. Copy the CraftBook .jar file into the plugins folder.
  4. Start your server.

Note: CraftBook requires that WorldEdit is installed.

When using mechanics Chairs or Variables the latest version of ProtocolLib is needed alongside CraftBook.

Check your server log for errors. If you encounter errors, see the Getting Help page.
