Viewing Source Code of a Mod


Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm really new to modding and in order to learn, I wanted to view the source code for a certain mod, for example BiggerChests, How would I do that? I can extract from the jar the files, but I'm not sure how to view them in eclipse. I can see the class files, assets, etc., but I'm not quite sure how to import into my modding environment as a complete whole so I can view the source code and all it's dependencies. If you could help, that would be super helpful.

Option 1: See if they have a github

Option 2: Use JD-GUI

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

  1. Help > Eclipse Marketplace
  2. Search 'decompiler'
  3. Install Enhanced Class Decompiler (Or Bytecode Outline)
  4. Restart
  5. Open Package Explorer, right click on project
  6. Build Path > Configure Build Path > Libraries > Add External Jar > Add the mods jar file.
  7. Find files in Project > Referenced Libraries > modname.jar and open them like any other
