Setting up a Minecraft server using Systemd

Minecraft is a well liked sandbox game that can provide hours and days of gaming fun especially if it is on a server with multiple players.

In this article I will describe the setup I used. The important parts of the setup are:

  • spigot as the server
  • Fedora 21 is the OS I'm on
  • systemd including service file and "sandboxing"
  • firewalld to block and open ports
  • mcrcon for connecting to the running instance

Html export theme for Digikam

One of my first project that I did for the web was a website for the farm of my parents Demeterhof Silberberg back then I decided to generate a static html gallery using Digikam. To adjust the theme and look to my site I wrote my own export theme. I learned a lot of xml, xmltransform and html during that project.

Maybe publishing this will help someone I think its in a quite sane state and nicely coded. The Readme is attached below for more information and the code see the project at GitHub

Minecraft Server Command Center Script

When the server is set up with systemd and rcon it is still quite cumbersome to connect to the command promt.

To get a nice and slick command center I created a bash script that opens up a tmux session with two panes. The first pane contains the the already logged in command promt of the minecraftserver and the second pane contains the last 40 journal entries and updates live if anything new is coming.

Git – a small user guide

Git is a nice tool to manage ones source code as well as tons of other files. There are hundrets of git howtos already out there but this one is mine. I just setup my git as I'm used to it.
