API's: How to add api's?


Recommended Posts

If for example i want to use the railcraft api, how do i properly add it?

What i want to do:

removing and adding recipes for the rollingmachine (since crafttweaker has nu support for railcraft latest version)

Ofcourse i searched the web and this forum for info. What i found was i had to extract the files into src\api\java folder, but doing so doesn't make it useable. It says there isn't source attached.

Could anyone help me with this pls? I just want to know where to put the railcraftapi.jar so i can use it in my mod.


Nvm, found it myself. For future searches:


1: put the api jar in "lib" folder

2: rightclick within your IDE(eclipse) the api jar and click "add to buildpath"

3: inside build.gradle add compile files("lib/railcraft-12.0.0-api.jar") in the depencies section

4: done, you can now use it and reference it within your project and it will compile properly

Or just put it in ./libs and don’t touch build.gradle. Or put it as a proper maven dependency in build.gradle and don’t touch ./libs/

Your way is a combination of the two existing ways that shouldn’t be used
