    As you may know, setting up permissions manually is hard =)

    This tool helps you edit Permissions 3 or Permissions config without ANY troubles.
    (GroupManager's groups work well with Permissions 3 preset =D )

    How to use:
    Double click the .jar file.
    If that doesn't work, execute "java -jar VisualPermissions.jar"

    To start editing, click "Load Permissions configuration".
    Choose your Permissions WORLD FOLDER and click "open"
    Then, after modifications, just click "Save Permissions configuration"
    PAIL version:
    Just drop the .jar into plugins folder :)

    If you open your generated files, they may seem different, but believe me, it just looks different, but works flawlessly :)

    YEAH, go Open Source!
    As everything I do, VisualPermissions is Open Source too :)

    Bukkit team - for Configuration class​
    SnakeYAML authors - for their parser​
    @koolblue87 - for very nice suggestions :)

    15-08-2011 - Added Permission editing, automatically selects the next permission while you're deleting the old ones, you can now modify selected permission by right-clicking​
    23-07-2011 - Added PermissionsBukkit support, re-written everything, added new features, etc.​

    Sweet! Care to put up a screenshot? I'm downloading now, but I'm sure some people may not download it because they like to see it before they get it.

    Suggestion: You could integrate it with the client-side Spout, so the editor is actually in-game!

    that would be........ EPIC.

    @Acrobot If you're so inclined, this would be great with Pail support

    Hmm... I'll try, as I am better in making plugins than stand-alone aplications :)

    @Matt Gill
    Okay, I'll try.
    I am planing to add new features that @koolblue87 suggested me (Thanks!)

    Pail seems very nice, but how would this work?

    @Acrobot You could just put the entire gui as-is into a JPanel instead of a JFrame and package it into a simple plugin to pass to pail. There's some more specific information in the thread.

    If I could, I would send you many, many cookies. I have been looking everywhere for a simple program that lets me do this.

    I have some ideas,
    1. Able to select/copy and paste more than 1 permission node to copy to another group.
    2. Fixed directory(it will remember your last permission folder)
    3. Link in-game /permissions -reload with VisualPermissions for one-click permissions reload.(When you get pail support)
    4. Some tips like add a - infront if you want to take the permission away from someone, and * when you want to give all permissions to that group.
    5. Prefix/Suffix configuration and color preview.
    6. Make editing player groups instead of removing and then adding possible.
    That's all for now :x

    Thanks for this wonderful editor! Now I don't have to copy and paste to yaml parser to make sure I did it right!

    The Pail support is already there :)
    And thanks for suggestions, I'll try doing it!

    You can already in Permissions 3, the rest will be soon.
  17. First of all: Thats a really helpful plugin for me. Have to change from Permissions 3 to PermissionsBukkit. Its saving lots of time :). Thanks for that.

    Thats possible? I should take a look at Spout. That would be really cool.

    bPermissions has a single command to change from Permissions 3 to bPermissions ;)

    I know this should be really easy to use, but might be helpful to add a short video tut on your OP. I know I would watch it.. lol

    Not ATM, because I am trying to re-write this, so it'll be able to convert, for example, P3 to PermissionsBukkit.
    Quick guide:
    - click "load permissions"
    - choose permissions FOLDER
    - edit permissions :)

    Really useful! But yes, the converter would be the icing on the cake. :)

    @Acrobot Okay, Thanks. I was slightly confused on exactly how to start. Just wanted to make sure I did it right :)

    Bravo, I am very impressed! :D This makes me seriously consider migrating permissions systems *again*. :eek:
    If I had seen this 2 weeks ago, I'd have used this to manage permissions. But I chose to migrate to PermissionsEx instead (due to its close resemblance to P3) and had a nightmarish weekend converting the permission nodes. :p

    Before I go postal on my server perms, is support for other permissions systems, like PermissionsEx, on the cards?
    (If not, I guess I can use the imminent MC 1.8 vanilla break to rebuild permissions from scratch...)

    Yeah, If you can see - it is going to be rewritten, so for example, you can convert from PermissionsEx to PermissionsBukkit, etc. :)
