Framework is lightweight but powerful library built to enhance the development of mods. Unlike other libraries, Framework focuses on providing powerful yet easy-to-use tools that unlock features which would otherwise be buried in large amounts of code to acheive the same result. Framework also avoids the use of Mixins (a code injection service) in order to gain maximum compatibility with other mods and allow it to safely be included in modpacks.
🔑 Synced Data Keys
Synced Data Keys are an improvement of Minecraft's entity data accessor system. It allows you to attach additonal data to any entity without the need of writing a complex capability. The benefit of using Framework's Synced Data Keys is the powerful features it provides. As mentioned by in the name, the data can be automatically synced to clients; this means you don't have to deal with packets. The data can be saved to the entity so it's remembered across world reloads or server restarts. Unlike Minecraft's system, Framework adds an option to allow your data to persist across deaths instead of being reset back to it's default value. Not convinced yet? Check out the example below to see how simple but powerful this system is.
