Edit the Code

Want to add new features to WorldEdit or fix bugs yourself? You can get the game running, with WorldEdit, from the code here, without any additional outside steps, by doing the following four things:

  1. Download WorldEdit's source code and put it somewhere. We recommend you use something called Git if you already know how to use it, but you can also just download a .zip file. (If you plan on contributing the changes, you will need to figure out Git.)
  2. Install any version of Java greater than or equal to 8.
    • Note that if you do not install JDK 8 exactly, Gradle will download it for you on first run. However, it is still required to have some form of Java installed for Gradle to start at all.
  3. Open terminal / command prompt / bash and navigate to the directory where you put the source code.
  4. Run one of these following commands:
    • Mac OS X / Linux:
      ./gradlew :worldedit-fabric:runClient
    • Windows - Command Prompt:
      gradlew :worldedit-fabric:runClient
    • Windows - PowerShell:
      .\gradlew :worldedit-fabric:runClient

🎉 That's it. 🎉 It takes a long time to actually transform WorldEdit into a mod. If it succeeds, the Minecraft game will open and you can create a single player world with WorldEdit.
