API and actual mod in dev env


Recommended Posts

How can I have the API sources from a mod and the actual mod together into a development environment?


The API source files are added to the project to be able to compile against the API, but if I add the mod itself for testing purposes to the run/mods folder I always get java.lang.NoSuchMethodError when something tries to use the API. Is there a way to have both at once in the dev environment - the API sources for compiling against and the mod itself for testing the stuff in the debugger?

Adding the API source to src/api/java should work. Otherwise you'll probably just need to compile against the mod itself and limit yourself to the API classes.


You can add a dependency as




to have ForgeGradle deobfuscate it on disk.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.
