|— Dinnerbone on Brigadier|
Brigadier is a command parser and dispatcher, designed and developed for Minecraft: Java Edition, mainly maintained by Dinnerbone. It is the first library used by Java Edition that Mojang has released under an open-source license. 
Brigadier is used for parsing and executing string commands.
- Define command nodes with argument or literal branches
- Modify/fork command source in command contexts
- Active inspection on command parsing
- Listing all possible commands from current command node
- Handle command result real-time on execution success/failure
- Recursive command node redirection
/execute runredirects to the root node of the vanilla command dispatcher

- "Added copyright header, LICENSE, and README.md by Dinnerbone · Pull Request #8 · Mojang/brigadier" by boq. Mojang/brigadier – GitHub "I'd argue that most people identify command by first literal after root, so that would make "command" a sub-tree and not just path leading to leaf node. /bikeshedding".
