About bridge.

bridge. is a powerful add-on editor designed to speed up your development process. It provides a rich editing experience for all files inside behavior and resource packs (JavaScript, JSON and functions) and provides a powerful work environment. Unleash the full power of add-ons with bridge. plugins and make use of rich auto-completions provided as you navigate through a file. Creating Minecraft add-ons was never more convenient!

Why you should use bridge.

Most importantly, JSON editors like bridge. guarantee that you cannot write invalid JSON. Additionally, "bridge." has a few more specific features which other editors do not offer:

  • bridge. interacts seamlessly with Minecraft and loads behavior packs and the corresponding resource pack from the com.mojang folder automatically
  • You cannot make general file structure mistakes because rich auto-completions guide you through the file
  • You do not need to study vanilla files and/or the incorrect documentation to find out which arguments a component has
  • Support for plugins: From custom components to searching files - bridge. plugins can do almost anything
  • Developing is generally significantly faster

Feature Overview


  • Create new behavior packs and resource packs with an automatically generated manifest.json
  • Create new behavior pack and resource pack files through a clear interface
  • Package your behavior pack with only one click


  • Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, Redo and all other features you would expect
  • Powerful shortcuts to reorder and navigate through a JSON file
  • JSON displays as a tree structure with collapsible/expandable elements
  • Easily restructure JSON files by dragging elements
  • Beautiful syntax highlighting for all behavior pack files
  • Snippets to quickly import common JSON patterns
  • Error/Mistake detection and auto-fixes for some of them
  • bridge. file structure predictions for users who want to be even faster writing add-ons


  • Rich auto-completions for entities, loot tables, trades, spawn rules, biomes, items, blocks, recipes, features, feature rules, animations and animation controllers
  • Handcrafted: We don't trust the Minecraft documentation and you shouldn't either. That's why we wrote all suggestions by hand
  • Context sensitive: bridge. proposes different data depending on what you wrote before. Adding e.g. a new item results in the corresponding identifier being proposed whenever an item identifier is a valid value throughout your behavior and resource pack files.
  • Ability to switch between auto-completions for multiple Minecraft versions seamlessly: We always support the latest stable release and the latest beta
