Sandstone features fully-typed custom recipes. Like for all resources, you need to provide a name, which can include a namespace and folders. You then provide the definition of the recipe.

Sandstone has special autocompletion for Recipes: for shapeless & shaped recipes, it automatically tells you what keys need to be defined - and prevent you from forgetting an item of your pattern.



The minimal syntax for custom recipes is the following:

import { Recipe } from 'sandstone'
Recipe('recipe_name', {
type: '<type>',
result: '<item>' /* or */ { item: '<item>' },

As you can see, you must provide the type of the recipe. Depending on this condition, several properties will be available. The result must be either an item name (for some types), or an object specifying the item name & the number of resulting items (for other types). You can make the difference using built-in documentation.

Additional properties#

Recipes do not have additional properties, however they have type-dependant properties. All those can be found directly via autocompletion (as shown above), or by looking at the Minecraft wiki article on Recipes.
