MultiMC 5

MultiMC is a custom launcher for Minecraft that allows you to easily manage multiple installations of Minecraft at once. It also allows you to easily install and remove mods by simply dragging and dropping. Here are the current features of MultiMC.

Development

The project uses C++ and Qt5 as the language and base framework. This might seem odd in the Minecraft community, but allows using 25MB of RAM, where other tools use an excessive amount of resources for no reason.

We can do more, with less, on worse hardware and leave more resources for the game while keeping the launcher running and providing extra features.

If you want to contribute, either talk to us on Discord, IRC(esper.net/#MultiMC) or pick up some item from the github issues workflowy - there is always plenty of ideas around.

Building

If you want to build MultiMC yourself, check BUILD.md for build instructions.

Code formatting

Just follow the existing formatting.

In general:

  • Indent with 4 space unless it's in a submodule
  • Keep lists (of arguments, parameters, initializators...) as lists, not paragraphs.
  • Prefer readability over dogma.

Translations

Translations can be done on crowdin.

Forking/Redistributing

We keep MultiMC open source because we think it's important to be able to see the source code for a project like this, and we do so using the Apache license.

Part of the reason for using the Apache license is we don't want people using the "MultiMC" name when redistributing the project. This means people must take the time to go through the source code and remove all references to "MultiMC", including but not limited to the project icon and the title of windows, (no MultiMC-fork in the title).

Apache covers reasonable use for the name - a mention of the project's origins in the About dialog and the license is acceptable. However, it should be abundantly clear that the project is a fork without implying that you have our blessing.
