packwiz is a command line tool for creating Minecraft modpacks. Instead of managing JAR files directly, packwiz creates TOML metadata files which can be easily version-controlled and shared with git (see an example pack here). You can then export it to a CurseForge or Modrinth modpack, or use packwiz-installer for an auto-updating MultiMC instance.
packwiz is great for...
- Distributing private modpacks for servers
- Creating modpacks for CurseForge and Modrinth
packwiz is not so great for...
- Managing downloaded mod files (use Curse/GDLauncher or another CLI)
- People who want a GUI (though there are some third-party efforts)
