If you don't have git yet

sudo apt-get install git

Once you have that....

git clone https://github.com/EduMake/RPi-WaterbearNodeJS.git
cd RPi-WaterbearNodeJS
sudo ./installer.sh

This will take a while (10 minutes is not unusual) and install lots of stuff.


To use Minecraft Pi get that running and start a game.

To start the waterbear server.....


or if you want to use a PiBrella


then using a web browser on another machine visit


changing the IP to the one for your Raspberry Pi

Running on the PC version (V.V. Buggy)

This is more technical and I'm being vague so only try this if you have a idea what I'm on about

Install a bukkit server from http://wiki.bukkit.org/Main_Page (I'm using the dev build )

Install the RaspberryJuice plugin from http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/raspberryjuice/

Clone this repo and init and update the submodules, then run "npm install", Once its installed "node waterbear.js" will start the server.

Try not to make 40000 blocks of TNT touch lava.
