📙 About:

Framework is lightweight but powerful library built to enhance the development of mods and reduce common code. 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. 

Due to the nature of Fabric, Framework on Fabric cannot avoid the use of Mixins (a code injection service) and hence may potentially present issues when installed with other mods. If this mod is causing issues with other mods, please do report them to the issue tracker.


✨ Features:

🚀 Open Model Format

Open Model Format is an extension to Vanilla's JSON Block Model format. It removes the restrictions of 22.5 rotation increments and allows you to create models larger than the [-16, 32] limit.


🔑 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.

📦 Easy Login Packets

Forge has the ability to allow developers to create login packets, however implementing it requires a significant amount of code. Framework condenses the required code into a simple registration method and will handle sending your data to clients.
