After we have developed MCreator for Arduino toolkit, a great interest for a more sophisticated framework arose, so we have decided to make it. And it's OpenSource. Check it out!
Our new system is called the Minecraft Link. Minecraft Link enables you to connect hardware devices such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi with Minecraft game via MCreator procedures, commands and general API for Minecraft mod developers. Its concept is demonstrated in the diagram below:
Support for Arduino and Raspberry Pi
Whereas MCreator for Arduino only supported Arduino, Minecraft Link supports Arduino and Raspberry Pi out of the box. We have made extensive documentation so support for custom hardware devices can easily be added. Minecraft Link has a hardware abstraction layer, so users only need to define their Minecraft Link system (code, commands or mod) for one device and it will automatically work on all supported devices.
Minecraft Link is licensed under Apache 2.0 license. All the code is therefore opensource. We made great efforts to keep the code well documented and readable. To check the code, visit our repository on GitHub. We have implemented build testing to make sure all commits are working.
Many examples and tutorials
We have made examples for all common use cases with Minecraft Link. Installation tutorials for all supported platforms are available too. Check them out on Minecraft Link section of MCreator Wiki.
You can find even more info about Minecraft Link on its official page.
