Is sketchfab fully open source?


(Gamnamno) #1

The Github project has 57 repositories (btw holy crap!), so is it all that would be needed to make a Sketchfab clone on any server ?

I’m definitely not crazy nor knowledgeable enough to do that but I’m curious to know.

I’m afraid not :slight_smile:

Most of the public repositories are plugins, experiments, forks, and other small tools.

We have many private repositories, and the huge bulk of the Sketchfab code is in a few of them. While we do use a lot of open source tools, our code base is not open source. Even cloning everything, it would not be trivial to get it working yourself. Sketchfab runs on a fairly complex software stack.
