Getting Started with Addons

Creating addons is hard, often overwhelming work. This document will provide you with a jump-start guide to addon creation, with an emphasis on “here is where to find more information”, rather than rewriting everything here.

The best place to start is probably the Minecraft Bedrock Beginners Guide. You should also bookmark the Minecraft Bedrock Documentation. After that, your best bet is to just try things! Download the vanilla Behavior Pack and Resource Pack. Poke around. Try changing things.

What if my addon doesn’t work?
