Related to How to make a crafting recipe for a custom spawn egg in minecraft bedrock edition.

So I have heard about knowledge books in Minecraft and it can be used to make custom crafting recipes, and it isn't surprising considering it is shown in the Java inventory GUI. Since I play on Bedrock, I can't get these special books. I said before that I'm a programmer, but I can't get the in-game code and access the scripts of it with my phone.

So without coding (not commands), how can I make custom crafting recipes?

  • So JSON isn't a programming language, but by "no coding" are you including JSON or just JavaScript?

  • @Penguin Well, all programming languages are considered to be "not used for modifying" in this sense of the question. Commented Jan 28, 2021 at 13:14
  • Sorry I still don't understand, are you counting JSON yes or no?

  • @Penguin Now that I understood about the JSON components, I guess you can use JSON. Commented Jan 29, 2021 at 6:50

It's possible to create custom recipes via behavior packs. Examples of this are the "Bedrock Tweaks" crafting tweak packs. You can download some via the below link and open them with a zip program to view examples. I know that you can load these on mobile on Android for certain, and am under the impression it works for iOS as well.


Note that loading custom behavior packs disables achievements for a world.
