wsPublish, an open source Steam Workshop Interop Library released

By - | Views: 7,133

How about a little open source news to get your Monday flowing? Game porter Ethan Lee recently announced the release of wsPublish, an open source Steam Workshop Interop Library with a little history.

Give it to me straight, what's it supposed to do? In the wise words of Lee:

The main intention is to allow users to integrate wsPublish into their own tools to allow for built-in Workshop support, without the need for an additional program to manage their uploads.

Originally developed by Lee, under contract with General Arcade for Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition and Shadow Warrior Classic Redux. Lee said that while other tools exist and have been released in some form, "there isn't a portable, dependency-free, multiplatform tool yet".

After speaking to Gennadii Potapov, the co-founder and CEO of General Arcade, Lee has been allowed to release wsPublish for others to use. Find it on GitHub.
