This application is not in any way related to Factorio. It should be considered a student project, and while it won't touch any files besides the mod files for the game, you should be cautious and back things up if you wish to be completely safe. Any feedback is welcome.

This is an application that you run before you start Factorio, that allows you to set up mod profiles and swap between them before you begin the game, for a seamless Factorio mod experience. This means you don't have to toggle mods in Factorio itself and rerun the entire game, waiting for it to load. It means you don't have to edit the JSON file manually yourself. It means you don't have to mess with command line tools or arguments, or creating different directories to act as your "profiles." This utility, my friends, means convenience.
I was streaming Factorio, starting the vanilla Campaign for the first time and then going back to my list of 12+ mods as I usually do. Then I found the mod portal through the game, and I was amazed! Then I was somewhat annoyed as every change and every time I downloaded a set of mods I would have to reset the game (what if I just want to download a set of mods and NOT load just one, huh Factorio? What if I just like hoarding mods?). So I figured an external tool could do the job better.
Plus, I wanted to make a desktop app, so it was good inspiration.
