I’m always glad to hear “happy to contribute”.
What I most want is for people to use Minie and provide constructive feedback:
- suggestions to improve the API (including names)
- suggestions to improve the documentation (including javadoc and README)
- bugs (including crashes, unexpected behaviors, incompatibilities, performance bottlenecks)
- missing features to prioritize
- anything about Minie that seems unexpected or difficult
There’s an issue tracker at GitHub that needs to be “broken in”: https://github.com/stephengold/Minie/issues
You could write a simple game (or a demo or a proof-of-concept) and post screenshots, video, or code for others to study. Demonstrate an animated character pulling on a rope. Test anisotropic friction. Write a bubble-popping game. Figure out how to make dynamic bipeds walk, or simulate a basketball hoop or a sailboat or long hair. Compare performance and ease-of-use with the other physics libraries.
If you have Android experience, you might help me get automated Android builds running on Travis—this is something JME needs as well as Minie!
If you’re really ambitious, you could clone the repo and contribute PRs.
