Platform developers work on the code which runs the core of Sirikata worlds. Both the core system and plugins implementing. Examples of code developed by platform developers are the core message forwarding code, physics simulation plugins, the renderer for clients, and scripting plugins.

Map for Platform Development

  • Documentation is very much a work in progress but is a comprehensive overview of what we currently have. Covers just about all the technical aspects of the system, tools and infrastructure around it, and how to work with it. If you're looking for a particular topic, start here.

Getting into the Code

Getting in Touch with Other Developers

  • Need to talk to other platform developers to bounce implementation ideas off them or ask questions about the code? Platform Developer Communication describes how to get in touch with other platform developers, both synchronously and asynchronously.
