A lightweight and simple cross-platform Minecraft world synchronization tool.

In order for this to work, you need to configure Minecraft to store worlds externally. This will allow the app to read the Minecraft worlds on your device.

To do this, Head over to Minecraft > Settings > Profile and change the "File Storage Location" to "External".

Setup external world storage


I couldn't find any good Minecraft world syncing tools, so I made my own. In order for this to work, you must have Minesync installed on more than 1 device.

How it works

A Minesync standard application comes with 2 components: a client and a server. When the app is started, the server runs in the background, listening on a specific port and waiting for sync jobs to start via a websocket. When synchronization is initiated, the world files are then copied from the client to the server. The daemon will then process the files and override them with the locally stored world. Everything should happen asynchronously or in a seperate thread.
