NEI, or Not Enough Items, is a mod made by ChickenBones that is a successor to the popular mods TooManyItems and Recipe Book. NEI modifies the existing Inventory GUI by adding an icon list of items to the right which is searchable via a text box at the bottom of the screen. This mod is in almost all modpacks as it is very useful for checking recipes and uses, as well as even searching for items in Chests and other GUIs. Available addons for NEI include WAILA, NEI Addons, and NEI Plugins.
Clicking the box at the bottom of the screen in an inventory (any inventory) allows for the searching of items. Hovering over an item and pressing the "R" key (for Recipe) will display that item's recipe. Pressing the "U" key (for Use) shows what that item is used to create. Clicking the search box twice allows search for an item in a Chest or other inventory; the items that match will have a golden outline, and other items will have a gray outline. Double-clicking the box will turn off the search mode.
In the left-bottom corner of the inventory is an Options button. Clicking it, and then clicking Tools, and then Data Dumps will give a GUI that allows dumping of Item, Block, Potion, Enchantment and Biome IDs, as well as Item/Block textures. This will dump them into the minecraft folder, under the folder "dumps". This is useful for wiki editors as these dumps can be used to construct tilesheets for image icons. If you are playing on a server, the dumps folder will be on your local computer, not the server.
