Cloudburst is a server software for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. It has a few key advantages over other server software:

  • Written in Java, Cloudburst is faster and more stable.
  • Having a friendly structure, it's easy to contribute to Cloudburst's development and rewrite plugins from other platforms into Cloudburst plugins.

Cloudburst is under improvement, yet we welcome contributions.

  • git clone
  • cd Server
  • git submodule update --init
