Adding support for other mods (1.12):

This is actually quite easy as only a single .json file per mod is required and it does not have many options.
It might be enough for you to just take a look at one of the shipped integrations, for example the one for Thermal Dynamics.

You generally configure Block-Groups, i.e. collections of blocks belonging to a mod that should be highlighted.
Each block-group can be individually disabled in configs, which is one of the reasons why you need to give a unique id for blockgroups. If you are unsure what you should put here, simply use the modid again.

Here’s a full summary of all the properties that can or should be set:

Property Description Example
id Name of this blockgroup, usually the mod id mymod
mod The mod id for this blockgroup. If the named mod is not loaded, neither will this blockgroup be. mymod
itemIcon Specify an item definition here, either as simple string or as complex json object. See below for more information on this. minecraft:apple
translationKey The translation key used to identify the button group to players. Can also be an already translated string, but using translation keys is recommended. If the mod provides a creative tab, that’s usually the translation key you want to use. itemGroup.mymod
blocks An array of block definitions. All these blocks will be highlighted. This is not the name of the item you are holding, but the name of the placed block! Those are often times not the same. Make sure you are using the block names! ["mymod:cable", {"name": "mymod:controller", meta: 1} ]
optimizationStrategy You probably won’t need to change this setting. It is only necessary for some mods that are stacking their bounding boxes. If your pipes look weird or have open ends, try changing this value to SKIP_DUPLICATE_LINES. The default is set to REMOVE_DUPLICATE_LINES. REMOVE_DUPLICATE_LINES

Item/Block definitions can either be specified by simply giving the ResourceLocation, e.g. minecraft:apple.
Or by specifying a more complex json object, which is capable of passing on meta and nbt data:

{ "name": "thermaldynamics:duct_0", "meta": 5 }
