Just because Glowstone is original doesn't mean it can't be familiar.
Use or code Bukkit plugins and they'll work natively with
Glowstone, and enjoy first-class Bukkit2Sponge support for
your Sponge powered plugins.
Simplicity is the mother of performance
Glowstone's simplicity affords it a performance improvement over CraftBukkit and other servers.
By design, our code is simple and doesn't have to jump through
to work around the official Minecraft server in order to
performance or functionality.
Note that these builds are for development or testing purposes only,
and we do not recommend that you use them in production.
