“When applications are done well, they are just the really application-specific, brackish residue that can’t be so easily abstracted away. All the nice, reusable components sublimate away onto github and npm where everybody can collaborate to advance the commons.” — substack from “how I write modules”


These are the main modules that make up mineflayer:
