What is Crafty Controller?

Crafty is compatible with Windows (7, 8, 10, 11), Linux, and Mac

Crafty is coded in Python 3.7 and uses the following technologies:

  • Tornado webserver used as a backend for the web side.
  • Argon2 used for password hashing.
  • SQLite DB used for settings and other data storage.
  • Adminlte used for web templating.
  • Font Awesome 4 used for Buttons and other graphical elements.

Crafty Controller is a Minecraft launcher and manager that allows users to start and administer Minecraft servers from a user friendly interface. The user interface is run as a self hosted web server that is accessible to devices on the local network by default and can be port forwarded to provide external access. Crafty is designed to be easy to install and use, requiring a bit of technical knowledge and a desire to learn to run. Crafty Controller is still actively being developed by Arcadia Technology.
