|— Dinnerbone on Brigadier|
Brigadier is a command parser and dispatcher, designed and developed for 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
Limitations and issues
Brigadier has various numbers of limitations while executing the command, such as the numeric limitations on integer data types such as
/weather, and floating-point data types such as
/time, making many integer values parsed in the commands inaccessible.
Since 1.15, whenever the chat cursor is positioned at the start of a node after a whitespace character, command suggestion will say "Incorrect argument for command at position <position number>" instead of displaying the command suggestions, especially the command arguments that requires numbers or strings before parsing and the trailing spaces beyond the command argument list.

/executecommand tree, which utilizes an overwhelming amount of the brigadier features.
/tagcommand tree, showing the difference between actual executed commands (red nodes) versus the first literal after the root (the "tag" box)
/msgcommand tree, showing that aliases have been implemented by brigadier's command node redirection functionality (dashed lines)

The first library we've opened is our command engine - it's MIT licensed so you can freely use it in your own projects!" – @Dinnerbone (Nathan Adams) on Twitter, September 26, 2018

"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"
