I've already blogged about Python 3 and Minecraft, but there are some subtle things which I glossed over in that post. I found when following my own notes that some of the steps are easy to skim over. I could explain a bit better what is going on, and why I was seeing weird errors when I resurrected my environment to work on an experiment with my kids.
Some breif notes from a lazy Sunday morning spent exploring the minecraft coding environment that I set up using Raspberry Jam earlier. I'm taking my notes in Jupyter while I explore the Minecraft API and poke around with one of the sample programs. Since my blogging engine Nikola also supports Jupyter Notebooks as one of it's import formats, I found that I could do Litterate Programming for Minecraft quite nicely!
A summary of the steps to install Minecraft with Forge, the two Forge mods "Raspberry Jam Mod" and "PythonTool Mod" and configure the coding environment to my preferred arrangement. I am using this on my own computers (work's Mac, and my openSUSE PCs) as well as my son's Windows 10 PC.
