Developer Checklist

If you want to work on the OpenMW code, here is the official Developer Checklist:

  1. Register on our Forum
  2. Setup a development environment
  3. Register on GitLab
  4. Fork the OpenMW repository on GitLab
  5. Clone your fork locally
  6. Build OpenMW
  7. Make sure your build of OpenMW does run
  8. Read the Developer Reference and especially the Policies and Standards

If you managed to do all that, you are ready to start coding. Try to find an issue on the issue tracker that interests you (the ones tagged "Beginner" are good starting points).

Once you have found something, consider making a thread in the developer section of the forum; ideally before you start coding, because we might be able to provide additional input.

If you can't find a suitable task on your own or are unsure about the suitability of a task, please ask for advice on the forum.
