Permissions plugin 2020 – PEX or alternative?

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Help' started by luckyrose, Mar 29, 2020.

  1. Hello,

    It's been a while since I was involved in creating servers. Now, I'm thinking about starting again. However, I have a question regarding permissions plugin. Is PermissionsEx still widely used, or has there been a better alternative in the past few years?

    Kind regards,
    luckyrose

  3. Same as PiggyPiglet, I highly recommend LuckPerms as it is just (at least for me) the best permission plugin out there.
    You have tons of features all explained very well on its wiki:
    - BungeeCord and other server platforms support
    - /lp tree (lets you see almost all permissions from all plugins on your server)
    - /lp verbose (lets you see all permissions checked for a specific filter, useful for finding what permission a command requires if there's no wiki for it)
    - /lp editor (gives you a link to a web permission editor, tired of commands ? there's your way to go)
    - an awesome wiki with all answers to your questions https://github.com/lucko/LuckPerms/wiki
    - Multiple prefixes/suffixes stacking
    - want a GUI instead of commands or the web editor ? an addon is available for that https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/luckpermsgui.53460/ (or another one who's premium https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/addon-advancedluckpermsgui.74064/)
    - a discord server for quick support
    - plugin is still frequently updated =)
    so yeah I think that's most of the things that I like in this plugin, now you just have to make your choice ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
