Feature Overview

Projects

  • Create behavior packs, resource packs, skin packs and world templates quickly. bridge. creates all of the files necessary for these packs to show up in Minecraft.
  • Drag your com.mojang folder over bridge. v2 to enable com.mojang folder syncing so that your "dev" compiler output writes straight into the com.mojang folder for quick updates to your packs. Keep in mind, any edits should be made in your project folder. Any edits made directly in the com.mojang folder will be overwritten!
  • Our new project directory structure allows you to have all of your packs neatly together in one project folder for better GitHub integration and to allow for external compilation processes.

Compiler

  • Compilation is triggered upon saving a file or forcing a production compilation in the sidebar.

The compiler has two modes: "dev" and "build".

  • The "dev" output is in the "builds/dev" folder of your project or the appropriate development folders in your com.mojang folder if linked. It re-compiles upon saving a file or selecting the "Restart Dev Server" option in the "More" menu on the pack explorer sidebar area.
  • The "build" output is in the "builds/dist" folder and is only triggered when your select the compile option in the sidebar.
  • The output between these types may vary, if a specific compiler plugin produces a different output for each.
