ComputerCraft and ComputerCraftEdu 1.79

If you’re browsing this site, you probably know about ComputerCraft, but do you know about ComputerCraftEdu? Developed last year, ComputerCraftEdu is a streamlined, user friendly version of ComputerCraft designed for schools, learning, and first time programmers. Find out more here. As of today, ComputerCraftEdu is available for Minecraft 1.8, along with a new ComputerCraft update which fixes a few bugs discovered during the porting process. Enjoy!


ComputerCraft 1.79 requires Minecraft version 1.8.9 with an up to date 1.8.9 version of Minecraft Forge installed. ComputerCraftEdu 1.79 requires ComputerCraft 1.79 to be installed first. Once you’ve installed Forge, drop the jar files into your .minecraft/mods/ directory, and launch Minecraft with the new Forge profile.


  • Ported ComputerCraftEdu to Minecraft 1.8.9
  • Fixed a handful of bugs in ComputerCraft
  • Removed MS-DOS support

Special Thanks

Like ComputerCraft itself, porting ComputerCraftEdu to Minecraft 1.8.9 took a considerable amount of work, work that would not have been possible without the support of TeacherGaming LLC. It’s always been a pleasure working with TeacherGaming, and if you’re unfamiliar with them, you should check out their site to find out more about what they do. If you have a vested interest in ComputerCraft and you’re interested in sponsoring future versions of the mod, get in touch.

Thanks also to everybody who helped with beta testing this update. Thanks to some thorough testing and quality bug reports, we’ve fixed a number of issues in this update.

Happy Programming!
