    Holograms is an implementation of text and item holograms in a CraftBukkit/Spigot server environment. It's creation was inspired by filoghost's HolographicDisplays and was initially created to be a stripped implementation. Over time, the plugin has matured and now features a fully expansive API for developers which allows many different possibilities.
    Usage (in-game)
    The plugin currently offers a variety of commands for management of your Holograms:
    • /holograms addline <hologramName> <textToAdd>
    • /holograms create <hologramName> <initialText>
    • /holograms delete <hologramName>
    • /holograms import <plugin>
    • /holograms info <hologramName>
    • /holograms insertline <hologramName> <index> <textToAdd>
    • /holograms list
    • /holograms movehere <hologramName>
    • /holograms near <radius>
    • /holograms removeline <hologramName> <index>
    • /holograms refresh
    • /holograms setline <hologramName> <index> <text>
    All commands use the permission structure "holograms.<subcommand>" (ie. /holograms near would use the permission holograms.near).

    Using Holograms (Developers)
    To use Holograms in your plugins, add the Holograms-API module to your build path. Then add Holograms as a dependency in your plugin.yml file:
    Code (YAML):
    depend: [Holograms]
    You can also add Holograms as a Maven dependency:
    Code (XML):


    Hologram creation is made easy with our API. Get a reference to the HologramManager and you're set.
    Code (Java):
    private HologramManager hologramManager;

    public void onEnable() {
        this.hologramManager = JavaPlugin.getPlugin(HologramPlugin.class).getHologramManager();

    Creating and Modifying Holograms
    Once you have the reference, you can easily work your way around the APIs offerings:
    Code (Java):
    public void createHologram(String id, Location location) {
        Hologram hologram = new Hologram(id, location);
        hologramManager.addActiveHologram(hologram); // Tells the plugin a new Hologram was added
    Adding lines is easy as well:
    Code (Java):
    public void addTextLine(Hologram hologram, String text) {
        HologramLine line = new TextLine(hologram, text);

    public void addItemLine(Hologram hologram, ItemStack itemstack) {
        HologramLine line = new ItemLine(hologram, itemstack);

    Removing Holograms
    You can permanently remove a hologram (incl. persistence) by doing the following:
    Code (Java):
    public void deleteHologram(Hologram hologram) {
    Or if you want to temporarily hide a persistent hologram until the server restarts:
    Code (Java):
    public void hideHologram(Hologram hologram) {

    Excellent plugin, lots of options in your commands! You seem to have thought of almost everything. :) A little buggy here and there, but I got it to do what I wanted with very little trouble. Thank you for making this! I've got so much to code I didn't feel like spending the time to make it myself.

    It's a good idea, but it removes itselfs after a reload, I am using currently the version 1.12, can you fix this?

    Where is the hologram update team? Where does the plug-in reboot? I do not want to edit the holograms with the team in the chat.

    please update to 1.12, not working on 1.12 (30/06/17), other than that brilliant alternative to holographic displays

    this plugin worked great, until i restarted my server. I then noticed that /h setline doesn't save the changes and you lose your work.
