Setting up development environment

Here's all you need to start development on Windows.

Basic setup

Git bash

IDEs can work with github directly, but whatever you ask, you'll get a command line answer.
Command line git is simply a must have. Bash also includes a lot of goodies like ssh.


Java 8 will work, java 11 recommended. Get it either from Oracle or elsewhere, e.g. Zulu OpenJDK:


Node is used by IDE to evaluate javascript. You'll also may need it if you modify any of babylon.js source.
Mind that IDE will complain if you installed unsupported version of Node; should that happen, remove Node, and install latest one supported.

Get it from


Eclipse for Java developers (not enterprise), with Spring and Web plugins:

Download eclipse here:

And then go to Help -> Eclipse Marketplace
Search and install Spring Tools 4 and Wild Web Developer plugins.

Import the project

Advanced setup


Apache as reverse proxy provides SSL, which is required for both VR and audio streaming.
I.e. browsers don't trust even the localhost, and enforce SSL.


Docker and OpenVidu

OpenVidu voice/video chat server runs as docker image. This is only required for development of voice chat functions.
