OpenXR™ Software Development Kit (SDK) Sources Project
This repository contains source code and build scripts for implementations of the OpenXR loader, validation layers, and code samples.
The authoritative public repository is located at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/OpenXR-SDK-Source/. It hosts the public Issue tracker, and accepts patches (Pull Requests) from the general public.
If you want to simply write an application using OpenXR (the headers and loader), with minimum dependencies, see https://github.com/KhronosGroup/OpenXR-SDK/. That project is based on this one, but contains all generated files pre-generated, removing the requirement for Python or build-time file generation, and omits the samples, tests, and API layers, as they are not typically built as a part of an application.

We are tracking "bulk commits" in the
.git-blame-ignore-revs file, for better
git blame output. Sadly it appears that web interfaces do not yet handle this
file, but you can if using the command line. See
for details, and
this blog post about ignore-revs
for some useful usage details.
