Fabric 1.20.4-1.20.2 is a lightweight mod loader and it contains the experimental modding toolchain for Minecraft. A new set of Java tools is able to extend the usual modding capabilities. Installing and updating Fabric mods will be much easier due to the user-friendly interface and advanced functionality.
Using Fabric and the Fabric Mod Loader, mod developers can create mods that enhance gameplay, introduce new features, or modify existing elements of Minecraft. It’s worth noting that the Minecraft modding community is dynamic, and tools and frameworks may have evolved since my last update. Therefore, it’s a good idea to check the official Fabric documentation or community forums for the latest information and updates.
