Welcome to the Sirikata Wiki
What is Sirikata?
- Sirikata is an BSD licensed open source platform for virtual worlds. We aim to provide a set of libraries and protocols which can be used to deploy a virtual world, as well as fully featured sample implementations of services for hosting and deploying these worlds.
- We are aiming for an alpha release in Q2 2009 and this video teaser should give you some sense of what to expect.
- Check out our Vimeo Channel for videos of and about Sirikata. We'll post demos and presentations about the system and applications there.
Sirikata is a platform for building virtual world applications such as games, meeting spaces, and social worlds. Platform developers work on Sirikata itself, creating the infrastructure and plugins used by applications to run the world. Applications developers then glue the necessary components together and can focus on any additional policies and scripting needed to run their world.
Sirikata is a large, complicated project with many components. Check out the Platform Developers starting page to find out how to get and build the code, learn about Sirikata's architecture, and get involved in it's development.
Documentation on how to import art into Sirikata is pending. For now check out the video Sirikata from a content creator's point of view
Sirikata is still in its early stages. While we are not able to target specific applications yet, we would like to open a dialog with potential users (that is, those who would develop a world on the Sirikata platform). Please join the list to join the conversation on our our community mailing list.
