Welcome to the Minetest Developer Wiki, here you learn how Minetest and games and mods for Minetest are developed.

Minetest is a game engine inspired by Minecraft, Infiniminer and others. It's licensed under the GNU LGPL 2.1, with artwork generally covered by CC BY-SA 3.0. There are two major parts to the system, the first being a core engine written in C++, the second being a modding API that exposes useful functions to a Lua environment.

The Minetest Wiki for players is located at wiki.minetest.net.

WARNING: This wiki is NOT the official Lua API documentation! It's wrong on many Lua API topics. See Lua API Documentation to find the real documentation.
