Here's a list of mods you can use on the forge or vanilla launchers with Fabric and Fabric API. If you have any you'd like to add, please feel free to modify this post but make any edits in a different text color.

Forge mods Fabric mods


Forge: Simply configure a profile and download the mods on the curseforge website directly to the launcher (Orange button). Mods compatible with Forge are red. You cannot install Forge mods for Fabric or vice versa.

Fabric: MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD BOTH THE MODLOADER AND MOD API. The api and loader must be the correct versions to work together for the MC version you want to play. I'd recommend getting the most recent fabric modloader and api for your MC version, but that may not guarantee the game won't crash. Fabric modloader can be hard to configure with a lot of mods so they aren't incompatible. I have only run Fabric 1.17.1 with half of the included fabric mods, so it is not guaranteed to work. Be aware that it may take several launch attempts and guesswork to get working. 1.17.1 compatibility: I'd recommend 40.1 API and v0.11.6 since it worked for me with some of the following mods.
Once you download them, run the fabric modloader.exe application and install it. Then open %appdata% (Windows Start Search: %appdata% and enter) on your computer and go to .minecraft. Create a new folder called mods. Put the api .jar in there, along with all mod files you download.  [/b]

Only install mods from credible sources, like CurseForge. .jar files can be harmful to your PC. Some browsers will automatically block installs of .jars, so open the download menu after downloading and confirm you want to keep it if prompted.

WECUI-allows you to see worldedit selections with no limitation on size and helpful red barriers that are visible through blocks. Also allows a hotkey to deselect W/E selections on creative and see chunks on survival instantly. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/worldeditcui-fabric
WECUI is also available for Forge, but isn't updated to 1.17. 1.18 version is underway. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/worldeditcui-forge-edition-3

Beehive Tooltips - Shows you how many bees are in a hive! Useful, I know! https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/beehivetooltips/download/3524291

Roughly Enough Items Fabric-compatible JEI. Requires Cloth Config and Architectury API. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/roughly-enough-items

Jade - Provides tooltips that tell you what you're looking at. More helpfully, it can be programmed to tell you anything from pet owner names to mob health to redstone power levels to block placement coordinates and registry W/E states (you savvy managers you). Helpful for being staff sometimes, such as by checking coordinates. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/jade/download/3468298

What The Hell Is That? - Alternative to JADE https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/wthit

OptiFine-This mod is simply useful because it improves in-game performance significantly and usually doubles frames. Also includes useful features like handheld torches, hotkey zooming and free in-game capes. https://optifine.net/adloadx?f=OptiFine_1.17.1_HD_U_H1.jar&x=9562

OptiFabric or OptiForge - For Fabric users, you must also add OptiFabric to make it run on Fabricloader. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/optifabric/files

Phosphor, Sodium, Lithium
- Alternative to OptiFine. Improves performance slightly to OptiFine, doesn't include any of the cool features. Not compatible with OptiFine. May be more compatible with other Fabric mods. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/phosphor https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/sodium https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/lithium

Useful Mouse Tweaks-adds useful in-inventory/crafting Quality-of-life mouse tweaks to make inventory management and crafting easier. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/mouse-tweaks

Xaero's Minimap Fairplay addition - Provides helpful minimap in the corner of your display, configurable and togglable. Remember you must turn off entity radar, or you're breaking our rules.https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/xaeros-minimap-fair-play-edition

JourneyMap for Forge Forge minimap. Remember you must turn off caves and entity radar, or you're breaking our rules. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/journeymap/files

AppleSkin - Includes useful food saturation info to the hunger bar and shows you the hunger and health gained from eating food you're holding. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/appleskin

Toast Control - Allows you to disable or reconfigure toasts (those obnoxious top-right bumpers that show up for recipes, tutorial, etc.) https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/toast-control

Sound Physics Remastered - Improves MC sound generation for better reverb, caves, nether, etc. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/sound-physics-remastered

ShulkerBoxTooltip - Allows you to view shulker contents in inventory. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/shulkerboxtooltip

Pickup notifier - Notifies you in the corner when you pick up items. Requires two other mods. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/pick-up-notifier-fabric

Visual Workbench - Allows items to stay in crafting benches and makes them visually render on the bench top. Also available for enchanting tables. Needs other mods. https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/visual-workbench-fabric

There's lots more mods you can install from CurseForge! Just remember that they have to be client-side only, and they must not be unfair or give an unfair advantage (if you have any doubts, ask an admin).

If you crash make sure you are using only compatible MC versions, modloader versions, and api versions. This may take some tampering, and I recommend using the most recent modloader and API for an MC version first. Then try removing mods one by one, starting with the most likely candidates to crash (minus optifine/fabric/phosphor/lithium/sodium if you want to use them). Those mods are guaranteed to work, at least by themselves (optfine does not work with phosphor, lithium, and sodium or vice versa).

Happy modding!  ;)
