Description

Boxes is a tool designed to manage Minecraft servers locally. It provides a convenient way to start, stop, and configure Minecraft servers on your local machine. With Boxes, you can easily create and manage multiple server instances, install plugins (WIP), and customize server settings. Whether you're a Minecraft enthusiast or a server administrator, Boxes simplifies the process of running Minecraft servers locally, allowing you to focus on enjoying the game or managing your community!

This tool only supports Windows and MacOS (With Cargo) unless you build your own version by cloning the repository.

  2. Place the .exe under a Boxes folder in your Program Files
