Minimalistic yet full featured control script for the minecraft server purely written in bash. Despite the obvious start, stop, restart capabilies, the script may take backups, restore and prune them by using standard Linux utilies like tar. Additionally through easily readable systemd service and timer files the minecraft server and the backup process can be automated. To increase the efficiency further, the script is able to suspend the server when no player is logged in and bring it up again as soon as a player tries to join. It supports the vanilla minecraft, spigot and probably other servers. Installation instructions especially for the Linux distribution Arch Linux may be found at the according ArchWiki entry. 2015-09-20 Continuous Development Linux
