Final Minetest Git Repos
The ultimate Minetest git site

Welcome to the ultimate Minetest git site:

This site hosts 1,000s of git repos. Most of the repos are for Mine­test. You'll find cur­rent mods here and mods that have dis­ap­pear­ed else­where.

We've con­vert­ed some non-git projects to git form so that you can git clone them.

In fact, we offer git copies of nearly all projects — both git and non-git — that were in the Troll­test ContentDB as of Christ­mas Day 2021 through Sep­tem­ber 2022. Even the ones that are no longer online there or else­where.

As a bonus, lost files pre­vious­ly host­ed on Media­Fire will be add­ed here in due course. There is no more com­plete Mine­test git col­lec­tion in exis­tence. This is the one and only one-stop MT git shop where you can clone until you drop.

There are FOSS repos of other types as well. You can store your own git repos here too. it's free. Auto­ma­ted reg­istra­tion is dis­a­bled due to spam­mers but email the fol­low­ing address if you'd like an account:

Send questions or comments to the same email address.

It isn't pos­si­ble to for these repos to be lost due to rage­quit. For exam­ple, in 2020, the migdyn repos were de­leted or moved to an unknown loca­tion, but they con­tinue to exist at:

And VanessaE has re­tired. A tower­ing figure in more than one re­spect, one of the true ori­gin­a­tors of the project. She'll be miss­ed. VanessaE de­le­ted many of her repos in 2021. But you can see them here at:

The code in old Minetest repos is often exper­i­mental or obso­lete. So, many of these repos can't be used dir­ect­ly. However, the code is a use­ful refer­ence for mod­ders work­ing on new features.

Final Minetest is being redone. Links to the new code will be add­ed here in due course.

Search that doesn't leave you in the lurch:

Use the navbar at the top to nav­i­gate. Note: This site sup­ports full-text search of source files.

Hold the phone, how to clone:

To clone a repo to your hard disk, use CLI com­mands of the fol­low­ing form:

git clone

Note: You can use http instead of https. However, if you do so, a redir­ection warn­ing mes­sage will be print­ed.

You can also download a ZIP file or TAR.GZ tarball from a repo's web page. Look for the type of but­ton shown below. It's a down­load button:

For example, click on the sample hidden_doors link pro­vided fur­ther up and look for the but­ton there.

Name issues:

* The GitHub "minetest" account is called "minetest" here.

"minetest" accounts from non-GitHub sites have had upstream site identifiers added. So, for example, the "minetest" account from "gitgud" is named "minetest-gitgud" here, "minetest" from NotABug is named "minetest-notabug", etc.

* "notabug" lets usernames end with a period but "gitea" doesn't per­mit this. So, we needed to change the user­name "" locally to "".

* Similarly, at Github, repo names can contain a period but "gitea" pro­hibits this. So, we needed to change the repo name "" to "auth_rx_wiki".

Other issues:

1. In September 2022, the main branch in each repo that re­fer­red to the branch as “main” was re­named at least tem­por­ar­ily to “master”. This was done to sim­pli­fy the import of other branch­es that had been miss­ed pre­vious­ly.

2. We're not certain that the following repo is valid:

The repo in question produced the following warning message on import:

warning in blob 81bb16b46edb67f6614169e42a6586b4eecc74db: gitmodulesParse: could not parse gitmodules blob

3. A small number of upstream repos [9 as of September 2022] couldn't be stored in their exact original form due to containing directories whose names were literal newlines. Those repos have been modified each with a commit to rename the “\n” directories to the letter “n”.

Note: The directories in question originated largely though not exclusively with HybridDog.
