there should be a declarative build system for minecraft modpacks

i wish i had time rn to make this,,, the current process is fully manual and so so error-prone

@a11ce you're so right

I don't do Minecraft modding but I'm wild about declarative packaging

each step is one of:

  • download a file from a URL and move it somewhere relative to the root folder
  • zip a folder and rename it

is there an existing system that would be good for this?

@a11ce that would require a sane and accessible way to find mods and dependencies, which curseforge is not

@izaya i made a pack w curseforge after posting this (my first time with it) and it,, worked perfectly? like i just got a list of the mods i wanted then searched them up and hit add. what’s it missing?
