Inside the book

 

What is Guidebook?

Guidebook is a library/mod that adds customizable books.

You can add books through mods, resource packs, or using the configuration folder.

 

If you used the mod for your mod's documentation or a modpack / adventure map, and want it mentioned here, feel free to tell me and I'll be glad to check it out!

Visit the wiki pages for detailed explanation about the XML file structure and where to place the files.
