Pre-Requisites to Contribute to Babylon.js


  • Installation of Node.js, NPM, Git, Typescript, Gulp and have a Github Account;
  • A fork and clone of Babylon.js;
  • Reading the contribution guidelines;
  • An IDE such as VSCode;
  • An ability to code in Typescript. Babylon.js is written in Typescript then compiled and distributed in JavaScript.

At the time of writing the version of Gulp needed was 4.0.0. The current What's New should indicate if there have been any changes of version. You can also look in the Babylon.js repository for package.json in Tools/Publisher which will give the version number for Gulp and Typescript.
