How to Install Fabric Mods on Your PC

This guide explains how to install mods onto your Fabric client. Fabric, like Forge, is a version of Minecraft that allows for mods to be run on both the server and client. For clients, Fabric offers many mods such as minimaps, HUD improvements, OptiFine integrations, and more.

To install Fabric mods onto your game, you'll need to have Fabric installed onto your client. You can view our tutorial on how to install Fabric for your client here: How to install Fabric on your PC

  1. Download any mods you want to install onto your client. You can find Fabric mods on any sort of mod website, such as CurseForge. For this example, we'll be installing Hwyla.
  2. Once the mods have been downloaded, navigate to your Minecraft install folder. This varies per operating system and install, but should look something like this depending on your platform:
      • Windows: %AppData%/.minecraft or C:/Users/(username)/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft
      • MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft
      • Linux: ~/.minecraft
  3. Open the mods folder in your Minecraft install folder. If there isn't a mods folder there, you can create it.
  4. Move the mod JAR files that you downloaded into the mods folder in your Minecraft install folder.
  5. After moving all the files, open the Minecraft Launcher and start the game using your Fabric profile.

After loading your game and loading into a world, all of your mods should be accessible. For some mods, they'll need to be installed on both the client and the server in order to work in multiplayer; you can read our guide on how to install Fabric mods for your server here: How to install Fabric Mods on your Minecraft Server
