    Title says it all. I currently still use PEX, but am considering switching to something a bit more new.

    Everyone will say they use the best one and all the others suck.
    King Pyro and TnT like this.

    King Pyro

    I use groupmanager, Just because thats what I started with and all I've learned. I don't see no reason to switch thus no reason to learn something else, It does what I want and I have no complaints :p

    I use PEX, with some of the same reasons that King Pyro said. First perm plugin, does what I need it to do.

    I use GroupManager. It is what I started with and I love the customization of it.

    I use PermissionsEx, because its simple and I know how to use it :)
    It's very nice plugin.

    GroupManager here.
    Though, you shouldnt judge a permission plugin by its age, as they are not effected by bukkit/MC updates at all, with the small exception of PermissionsEx, and i think Bpermissions. Instead check if it has all of the features you need, or if can be added on, and by stableness. Speed is not really a concern by nature of permissions plugins, since they dont do anything heavy unlike plugins such as worldguard.

    I've just mainly been looking for something with the granular control of PEX, but idk, maybe even more features. Also, wish the it was split into users.yml and groups.yml, as I like to edit manually, sometimes when the server is online. Can't do that when I am overwriting permissions.yml.

    Bpermissions and GroupManager both have a split users.yml and groups.yml.

    PEX here, just because it makes sense and isn't overflowing with a bunch of unneeded features. Ingame permissions setup is the greatest part, though I'd like to see adding a space after prefixes. I can do it in the config but ingame commands don't work for that.

    I use PermissionsBukkit, because it was the first and only permission plugin i tried and it does what's it is supposed to, even years later thanks to the Bukkit API <3

    What are the main differences between the main permission plugins ayway?

    Custom implementations are fun too.

    Excluding stability and catching YML errors, permission plugins usually differ in the following criterias:

    Split file or single file (Groups.yml and users.yml, or just permissions.yml), however YAPP takes it to the point of one file per user/group.

    Multiworld handling (Mirroring system (Gm, Bperms) vs multiworld as extra data (PEX, permsbukkit))

    '*' support (GM and PEX)

    Multigroup support: none, dynamic and rigid (privileges only supports one group, PEX, Zperms and other support dynamic multigroup, as in, when ranking a user his primary group may change to a sub group, and GM provides a rigid system where you explicitly mention if a group is primary or sub)

    SQL support: (PEX and Zperms support it, however no SQL support doesnt mean no alternatives)

    File structure: Different permission plugin define misc group data differently.

    Probably missed some primary differences, if i missed something, ping me.
