With this in mind, we decided to shed some light on the matter hoping to clarify a few basic AR concepts and tools, and give insights about the available development frameworks compatible with the Wikitude SDK.
First things first:
Software Development Kit (SDK)An SDK is a set of tools, software, code samples, guides, technical documentation, libraries, processes and everything else that is needed to develop software applications for specific platforms.
Application Programming Interface (API)Simply put, an API is an interface that allows two programs to communicate with each other following a set of commands, functions, objects, and protocols that developers can use to create software.
Wikitude extensions and plugins
Other supported development frameworks based on Wikitude’s Cordova extension are PhoneGap, Intel® XDK HTML5, SAP Mobile Platform and Telerik appbuilder.
In 2016, Appcelerator was acquired by Axway.
