How to contribute to the Parabox virtual world ecosystem (Post-Babylon)

Open-source building

Instead of an SDK, Parabox will develop in an open-source manner allowing builders to utilize any method of development they prefer. Compared to other build methods seen in major crypto-related metaverse platforms, this is a USP.
The Parabox virtual world application has yet to be open-sourced, when it is, the following instructions will be relevant to ecosystem development.
Contributions work via forking the original Parabox Virtual World code on GitHub, leveraging all the existing infrastructure, and creating a unique gamified experience, which will most likely be built around the pre-existing Genesis Avatar NFTs or PARA.
To do this, we have made a checklist:
  1. 1.
    Fork the repository: Once you've found the Parabox project on GitHub, you must create a copy of the repository, called a fork. You can do this by clicking the "Fork" button on the top right corner of the project's GitHub page.
  2. 2.
    Clone the repository: After forking the repository, you need to clone it to your local machine so you can make changes. To do this, copy the URL of your forked repository, open your terminal or Git Bash, and use the command "git clone [paste URL here]".
  3. 3.
    Create a new branch: It's essential to create a new branch for each new feature or issue that you're working on. This keeps your changes separate from the main branch and makes it easier for the project maintainers to review your changes. You can create a new branch using the command "git checkout -b [branch name]".
  4. 4.
    Make changes: Now that you have a local copy of the repository, you can start making changes. Follow the project's guidelines for contributing and make sure your changes align with the project's goals.
  5. 5.
    Commit your changes: Once you've made your changes, you need to commit them to your local repository. You can do this by using the command "git commit -m 'your commit message'".
  6. 6.
    Push changes to your fork: After committing your changes, you need to push them to your forked repository on GitHub. Use the command "git push origin [your branch name]".
  7. 7.
    Share your changes: After creating your desired web3 experience, share a link to the code of your repository and the new software you have created. This way, members of the Parabox ecosystem can authenticate the intentions of your software and feel safe interacting with it. An ideal place to share your software is through Parabox and Radix community channels in places such as Telegram and Discord.
