hematite_nbt hematite_nbt at crates.io hematite_nbt at docs.rs Build Status

This repository contains the Hematite project's standalone nbt crate for working with Minecraft's Named Binary Tag (NBT) format.

This is not the only NBT-related crate available, but it has some notable features:

  • Full support for serializing and deserializing types via Serde. This means that you can read and write the NBT binary format of any struct annotated with the standard #[derive(Serialize, Deserialize)] traits (provided it actually has a valid NBT representation).

  • An API that attempts to differentiate between complete and partial NBT objects via nbt::Blob and nbt::Value. Only complete objects can be serialized.

  • Support for the TAG_Long_Array data introduced in Minecraft 1.12.

  • Support for the modified UTF-8 encoding used by the vanilla Minecraft client.
