Why Hajime
If you're looking to start a Minecraft server and don't know what a "server.jar" or "Java flags" are, then Hajime is your ticket. No more hassle from other startup scripts!

If you're a power user wanting to get the maximum performance and features from your servers without using Docker or Kubernetes, then Hajime is for you. Take advantage of multithreading and more!

If you're a programmer interested in free, open source software, then Hajime is just what the doctor ordered. We couldn't have done it without you!

No matter who you are, Hajime is here to help.
About Hajime
Hajime was created to fill a void in the world of Minecraft servers. Unlike other startup scripts which are more developer-oriented, Hajime focuses on a pure user experience. That is, we focus on making it easy for everyone. This means creating a powerful user interface while still retaining comprehensability. What's more is that most other startup scripts have dependencies; this means you need extra software to run them. Hajime is different. If you can compile it, then it'll run.

All of these factors combine together to create a program that's user-friendly yet jam-packed with functionality.

Using Hajime
See the GitHub page for instructions on installation and usage.
Hajime is supported on macOS. Unfortunately, the main development happens on Linux. To fix this, MacStadium's FOSS program lets us use a free Mac Mini to develop Hajime with. Check MacStadium out here!
