paperd is a wrapper application which enables the PaperMC Minecraft server to be run more properly in the background as
a daemon, rather than simply backgrounded using
tmux. This is accomplished both by the
application and custom changes in the Paper server.
Support and Project Discussion:
paperd is strictly Unix / POSIX compatible. Windows is not supported.
This project requires the Rust toolchain.
paperd is built on the latest release of Rust,
To build for release, use the build.sh script:
./build.sh clean build --release --features console
If you don't want the console feature, or don't have
ncurses installed, simply omit the feature to build without it:
./build.sh clean build --release
If you have Docker you can build using a stable Docker image. This is especially useful if you are running a more bleeding edge distro (i.e. Arch) which is using ncurses 6, though we want to match Ubuntu's ncurses 5 as it's the most prevalent MC server OS.
./build.sh clean package
paperd.tar.xz file that will result in the current working directory is the pre-built file available from Jenkins.
PRs are greatly appreciated, but when a change requires modifications to both this project and to the Paper server itself, please link both PRs together in the PR description.
For this project in particular, please run
rustfmt with all default settings across the whole project before
