JmonkeyStore is OPEN
After years of requests and attempts, a software store (a.k.a an asset store) for jmonkey has finally been created and is now open to registration. Everybody can register and submit their software!
Currently only free open-source software can be submitted. Once we have the sponsorship required for the legal documentation and setup fees we will be able to allow selling (payment required to use it) and sponsoring (pay the developer if you want to as a thank you) software. We are quietly hoping this will be available soon!
In regard to free opensource software:
- All software must be available on a git repository. Github, GitLab and BitBucket are all supported.
- Software must contain a license in the repository.
Licenses let people understand how they can use your software and if they are allowed to use it commercially. If you need help understanding what license to use, we have provided a license chooser to help you pick one. If you don’t provide a license, it is implied that you cannot use it!
We are hoping as time goes by to provide an exhaustive collection of all the creations the jmonkey community has made and allow users to easily find and use them. This should make creating a game not only quicker but also allows users to learn how things are done through the source code. Terrain generators, mini-maps, vehicles, characters, shaders, post-processors and all manner of cool stuff will be available to everybody simply by adding a single line of code to your gradle project!
Since the project is very new, feel free to offer suggestions on improvements. If you cannot find a category that fits your software let me know and I will add it.
Sponsoring the Store
The store depends entirely on community sponsorship. In addition it also provides related software such as IntelliJ integration and software on the store itself. Please consider sponsoring the store on Patreon to help continue its development! Without the support and sponsorship of the community this would never have been achieved, so I would like to give a big thank you to all of you! Patreon sponsors will be given a badge to acknowledge their support, so don’t forget to give them a nod for making this happen!
