How to Easily Read and Edit Minecraft Function Files: User-Defined Language for Notepad++

Hey Minecraft function engineers!

I’ve included here a download for the current version of my user-defined language for reading Minecraft function files in Notepad++. This changes the color of function commands to make them easier to read, whenever you open a .mcfunction file!

Download available to supporters of the Free level and higher.

To Install:

  • Download the file attached to this post, and then open Notepad++.
  • Select “Language” from the toolbar menu, and then in the dropdown menu choose “Define Your Language.”
  • A window will open, and there you press the “Import…” button, and select the downloaded file.
  • From the “Language” dropdown menu, select “MC Function Tyruswoo.”

Now you can use the “MC Function Tyruswoo” language to make your function code easier to read! Also, using “MC Function Tyruswoo” for your Notepad++ language will allow you to see exactly what I see when I’m looking at my function code for the Game Changer 3.

You’ll notice I like to use blue for commands, light blue for the modifications to the commands, red for numbers, orange for text, and gray for comments. The color scheme comes from my experience with BYOND‘s DM language. DM and C++ are how I first learned to code, and hence my preference for the color scheme. If you prefer different colors, you could also use my user-defined language file as a starting point.

Hope you enjoy! Remember, only you can build your dreams!
