As I stated in my previous post I am going to open source the Minecraft Game Server Launcher (MGSL).
And I just did.
The MGSL is a python script that can be used to launch a Minecraft server in Amazons EC2 cloud on an Ubuntu server.
The MGSL is dead simply to use: you run ‘python mgsl.py’ once and the server starts and loads the your Minecraft world. You run it again, and your world gets stored in a safe place and the server is terminated.
Get it here:
Tell my if it works for you and what I can do to improve it in the comments.

I decided to open source a project that I was working on in my spare time.
The idea behind this concept that I call MGSL (Minecraft Game Server Launcher, in lack of a better name :-) ) is that people don’t need a minecraft server 24/7. What they do need is a very simple mechanism to start and stop a server on Amazon EC2 *plus* an automatic save/load routine.
Under the hood it’s a two applications: the web interface that manages a database (based on web2py
) and a python/boto
script doing the hard work.
More infos soon.
