Gradle: Add local jar to deplendencies


Recommended Posts


I need to add a local jar file as a dependency. Currently I'm doing it the following way:


dependencies {
    // [...]
    minecraft 'net.minecraftforge:forge:1.18.2-40.1.85'

    // [...]
    implementation files("chronos_lib/chronos-shared-1.0-SNAPSHOT-all.jar")

While developing, this seems to work, but the contained classes aren't available at runtime - ClassNotFoundException. 

How can I make the jar available at runtime?

Forge won't load a jar unless it thinks it is some kind of mod.



* Separate Library mod

* JarInJar: https://forge.gemwire.uk/wiki/Jar-in-Jar

* "shadowing" https://imperceptiblethoughts.com/shadow/introduction/

are some of the ways you can do it


If you don't post your logs/debug.log we can't help you. For curseforge you need to enable the forge debug.log in its minecraft settings. You should also post your crash report if you have one.

If there is no error in the log file and you don't have a crash report then post the launcher_log.txt from the minecraft folder. Again for curseforge this will be in your curseforge/minecraft/Install

Large files should be posted to a file sharing site like https://gist.github.com  You should also read the support forum sticky post.
