Minecraft Python Client Library!

This projects aims to be a modern, Python3-compatible, well-documented library for communication with a MineCraft server.

Detailed information for developers can be found here: http://pycraft.readthedocs.org/en/latest/.

start.py is a basic example of a headless client using the library Use start.py --help for the options.

Supported Minecraft versions

pyCraft is compatible with the following Minecraft releases:

  • 1.8, 1.8.1, 1.8.2, 1.8.3, 1.8.4, 1.8.5, 1.8.6, 1.8.7, 1.8.8, 1.8.9

  • 1.11, 1.11.1, 1.11.2
  • 1.12, 1.12.1, 1.12.2
  • 1.13

In addition, some development snapshots and pre-release versions are supported: minecraft/__init__.py contains a full list of supported Minecraft versions and corresponding protocol version numbers.

Supported functionality

Although pyCraft is compatible any supported server, only a subset of all packets are currently decoded or encoded by the library: those necessary to remain connected to the server, those used for chat, and some others.

Developers wishing to use other functionality with pyCraft can contribute by implementing packet classes for the desired packets, adding them under minecraft/networking/packets, and sending a pull request.

Supported Python versions

pyCraft is compatible with (at least) the following Python implementations:

  • Python 2.7
  • Python 3.4
  • Python 3.5
  • Python 3.6
  • PyPy

Requirements

The requirements are also stored in requirements.txt

See the installation instructions for the cryptography library here: https://cryptography.io/en/latest/installation/ but essentially pip install -r requirements.txt should cover everything.
