Fabric Tutorials



These pages are essential must-reads when modding with Fabric, and modding Minecraft in general, if you are new to modding, it is recommended you read the following.


Blocks and Block Entities

Data Generation

World Generation


These pages will guide you through Mojang's Brigadier library which allows you to create commands with complex arguments and actions.


These pages will guide you through using the many events included in Fabric API, and how to create your own events for you or other mods to use.



Mixins & ASM

These pages will guide you through the usage of SpongePowered's Mixin library, which is a highly complex topic. We recommend you read these pages thoroughly.

Updating Yarn mappings in a Java codebase

The Hacky Way


  • Fabric-Loom 0.2.2 or above
  • A Java codebase - Kotlin and Scala will not, currently, do.
  • Some assembly required


  1. Figure out your target mappings version. For example, “net.fabricmc:yarn:1.14.1 Pre-Release 2+build.2”.
  2. Make sure the mappings for this version get created. This is the hacky part, as currently the only way to do it is to edit the “minecraft” and “mappings” fields in a build.gradle to the new version, run any Gradle command (“gradle build” will do, even if it crashes), then change the fields back.
  3. Run the following magical wizardry command: gradle migrateMappings -PtargetMappingsArtifact="net.fabricmc:yarn:1.14.1 Pre-Release 2+build.2" -PinputDir=src/main/java -PoutputDir=remappedSrc, where:
    • “targetMappingsArtifact” refers to the target mappings version. It is imperative that the build.gradle be set to the current mappings version of the mod when running this command!
    • “inputDir” is the input directory, containing Java source code,
    • “outputDir” is the output directory. It will be created if it is missing.
  4. Copy the remapped source code to the input directory, if everything's fine,
  5. Hope for the best.

Note: You may need to specify the full paths in quotes, try this if you get file not found issues.

This should work across Minecraft versions as well, provided we haven't massively broken Intermediaries or done something equally silly (aka: most of the time).

The Non-Hacky Way

Coming soon! (Hopefully.)
