    Never reload or load another plugin ever again!
    Who needs PlugMan when it's automatic?


    • Automatically reload plugins when uploaded.
    • Automatically load plugins when uploaded.
    • Automatically reload a plugins dependencies.
    • Supports small, large & modded servers.
    • Supports small and large plugins.
    • Fully configurable messages.
    • Fully configurable settings.
    • Toggle-able alert messages.
    • Ignore specified plugins.
    • Tab completion support!
    • No dependencies!
    • Alert messages for:
    » Automatically reload plugins.
    » Automatically load plugins.


    This plugin checks all your plugins every x amount of seconds.
    It checks if a plugin has been updated and if so, it will
    unload it, load it and then reload it completely.

    This plugin will also automatically update a plugins code!

    Now that's something even PlugMan can't do!

    All you have to do is slide the plugin into your plugins
    folder and let AutoPluginLoader do the rest! :cool:

    The quickest way to get support for any of my resources
    would be to join my Resource Discord.

    This plugin works very well! This is the only plugin who can load/unload a plugin without problems. Keep up the good work!

    Hello, following a problem with your plugin, I prefer not to use it anymore. Yes if there was a problem, I should have contacted you but you could not have done anything because it caused serious damage, whether in my server itself. The idea of the plugin is good, but also good for messing up and starting all over from the beginning.

    From the owner of my server I quote:
    "The plugin for one reason or another succeeded when reloading a plugin, transferring all the plugins to the database and corrupting all of them even deleting them. I unfortunately cannot know because of which plugin this is. arrived but an auto-plugin-loader is the worst idea we had to put it. "

    I do not recommend anyone to use this type of plugin, unless in a few years, mojang finds a way on the servers that we can easily reload our plugins, but in any case, do not be lazy when you finish a configuration, RESTART your server. It will be much more beneficial to do it this way. Even if you have a large number of players, in the worst case, wait until a time when there are fewer people to restart. It will always be better than having a disaster.

    I really apologize to the developer for being so blunt, but there is serious work to be done. Many plugins don't necessarily like being "force-reloaded" and can cause serious problems.

    I've seen your plugin "AutoPluginLoader" on spigotmc, it's fantastic!!!!!
    I'm a Chinese server owner using the plugin. Could you please allow me to translate your plugin and advertise it to MCBBS? Many Chinese server owners want a translated language file, and I can help them. You know not all of them are good at English, they can't read your post (Even with Google translator) they need a Chinese translator. I'll show them your spigotmc page and let them download the plugin here. I'll NEVER claim it as mine, I just wanna translate it and let more people know it. I'll NEVER leak the jar file.
    Hope for your reply!

    1. Does not work for most plugin changes. It claimed to have reloaded my test plugin successfully, yet the output was not altered as it should have been.
    2. Causes warnings in the console on every reload due to incorrect plugin loader handling. This also causes loaded plugins to not appear on Bukkit's plugin list - renders /plugins command useless without any warning about it as well as could potentially break plugins using that list.
    3. Loading plugins that have been added post-startup (or unloaded) simply does not work. The plugin loads either as disabled and cannot be enabled or doesn't load at all, in both cases APL states that it "isn't a plugin on this server".
    4. Breaks plugins at random with "IllegalStateException: zip file closed" error - happened in cases of my test plugins which were dynamically reloaded as well as third-party plugins which were not touched since the server's startup (ex. LuckPerms).

    Note: Yes, all of the above cases have been tested in a controlled environment and the issues are caused by AutoPluginLoader. They do not happen when the plugin is absent from the server and are not caused by collision with other plugins.
    Note 2: As the developer has stated, leaving bad reviews just because of one issue which could have been the user's fault is not advised. However, as a fellow developer who has done proper tests, I think I'm excused in the situation of a plugin this unstable with over 7-month development history. In addition:

    5. Heavy case of "Pretty on the outside, ugly on the inside." The code seems to be written either by someone inexperienced with Java or has been created extremely lazily and/or fast without much error correction. Very weird exception handling, repetition of the same conditional check in consecutive lines, that should done be in one block.. not to mention the jar container has IDE-exclusive files that should not have been exported and may contain private information like used IDE, operating system or system username.

      Wow man! You know so much! You're so smart!

      Here's an idea... hear me out...

      Have fun complaining about things instead of trying to have them fixed.
      I experience 0 issues with the resource myself, so I'm unaware of any current issues.
      I can't just magically obtain your knowledge and experience what you do.
      Your review came across as if you were educated, but yet you failed to do the most simplest thing.
      Report bugs, don't do this sad crap. Doesn't help them get fixed.

    Very great Plugin! But please add a function that automatically reloads the configs of the Plugins.

      Much appreciated! ❤
      Unfortunately that's not possible to do automatically. Especially considering how some plugins have A LOT of folders, that could cause A LOT of lag issues when trying to check ALL those folders every few seconds.

    Great plugin! Only thing that I don't like about the plugin is the command:
    /apu leaves the simpsons
    1. PCPSells
      Author's Response
      Much appreciated! ❤
      When you say, "/apu leaves the simpsons" are you saying that the old "/apu" command conflicted with another plugin?
      Hopefully the new name and it's new command, "/apl" are more situated for ya.
