Yet Another Config Lib, like, what were you expecting?

Why does this mod even exist?

This mod was made to fill a hole in this area of Fabric modding. The existing main config libraries don't achieve what I want from them:

  • Cloth Config API: It's stale. The developer of cloth has clarified that they are likely not going to add any more features. They don't want to touch it.
  • SpruceUI: It isn't designed for configuration. In this essence the design feels cluttered. Further details available in this issue.
  • MidnightLib: It's mostly bloat and doesn't have a focus on config. This library includes other unwanted features such as cosmetics.
  • OwoLib: It's content focused. Like MidnightLib, it does a lot of other things as well, adding to the size.

As you can see, there's sadly a drawback with all of them and this is where YetAnotherConfigLib comes in.

How is YACL better?

YACL has the favour of hindsight. Whilst developing this fresh library, I can make sure that it does everything right:

  • It's just a config library. YACL contains no other features, just config screen generation.
  • It's lightweight. YACL leaves managing your config up to you, it doesn't contain an alternative to AutoConfig or similar. (Can be paired with my other library, Settxi, for this feature)
  • Easy API. YACL takes inspiration from Sodium's internal configuration library.
  • It's styled to fit in Minecraft. YACL's GUI is designed to fit right in.


The wiki contains a full documentation on how to use YACL.
