Fabric is a lightweight and experimental modding API for Minecraft. Together with the Modloader Fabric, it will allow you to play mods for Minecraft even for the latest versions such as snapshots.
It aims to allow mod developers to port their creations from one version to another more easily. Especially for new versions of Minecraft in version 1.14, 1.15, 1.16.5, 1.17.1, 1.18.2, 1.19.4 and 1.20.1 Mods using Fabric as a library don’t even need to use Minecraft Forge.
The Fabric API is highly regarded for its ability to minimize in-game resource waste while supporting many mods at once. Many mod developers use it because it is quickly updated with new versions of Minecraft.
