Is there a way to install forge from the command line?


Recommended Posts


I'm making a portable Minecraft launcher that runs from USB, and I want to install forge so I can optimize game performance for lower-end devices. The only problem is that the launcher uses custom directories and I would like installation to be as simple as possible (Preferably without any user input). Currently, the user has to manually find the game directory and press install which isn't Ideal (Especially for people who aren't too tech-savvy).

Are there any ways that this could be achieved? (Such as command line args)

Do not make custom Minecraft Launchers, messing with user auth is a bad idea.
Also, we do not encourage/support automated installations of Forge.
The Minecraft launcher is already portable. You do not need to make a custom one.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.
