High quality Minecraft world editor

Latest Version: 1503040

PyCraft is a high-quality Python library for offline edition of Minecraft worlds. High-quality, because it respects the spirit of the Python programming language (i.e. it is pythonic), and because it also takes care of memory consumption, which can be a huge problem during Minecraft world edition. PyCraft complies with Python 3.3 specifications.

PyCraft is governed by the CeCILL-C license under French law and abiding by the rules of distribution of free software.

Quick and dirty: edit a NBT-formatted file

Here is an example of modifications that can be operated with PyCraft on a file stored with NBT encoding format. NBT encoding is widely used in Minecraft.

from pycraft import con

# Load our favorite TAG_COMPOUND
W = con.load("entry.nbt")

# Add some meaningful information :)
W[u"author"] = "Me, myself and I"
W[u"date"] = "2014-02-26"

# By default, ints are of kind TAG_LONG. Nobody likes show-offs
W[u"nb_of_followers"] = 42
W.set_kind(u"nb_of_followers", con.TAG_BYTE)

# Save it back"entry.nbt")
