About the plugin

Since 1.17 support, the generated mod code looks much more similar to the manually written ones... everywhere except crafting recipes.
They still look machine-generated unlike the rest of the mod. Despite they don't have the highest priority speaking of code optimizations, I think there might be some users that want their recipes to be similar to vanilla's.

If you are one of them, then this plugin is made especially for you.

P. S. The plugin is assigned to GNU General Public License v3 because the templates code provided originates from official MCreator generators templates.

Does this plugin make recipes use the same character for the same item? An example of what I mean is below:
"0 0"

I noticed that or every item in mcreator recipes they have the same item have different characters like:
"0 1"

can you use this to make a crafting machine crafting recipe template for MCreator to let you edit your recipes in the recipe editor that MCreator already has built in?

You gave me an idea. I will make that possible in the next update (likely when we'll start working on 1.18, maybe earlier). Just keep in mind that crafting ingredients can be assigned to one of uppercase Latin letters, decimal digits or '#' sign, so even in such cases you won't be able to use more than 37 different types of items in those recipes.
