These articles will teach you how to code for AresMUSH.
Ares is still in beta, including the documentation. While it's stable overall, features are subject to change and some bugs are to be expected. Watch the Forum for updates.
There are several tutorials designed to introduce you to Ares coding step by step. It’s recommended that you do these in order, since they all build on each other.
Learn the basic Ares functions and code concepts.
Learn what tools you use to edit the Ares code.
Learn how to add a command (a simple ‘goals’ command to set character goals.)
Learn the anatomy of a more complex system (aka a plugin) from start to finish. The example uses the Cortex skills system.
Learn how to add things - in this case, the character goals from Tutorial #3 - to the web portal.
Once you’ve completed the initial tutorials, there are a wealth of other topics available for reference.
It's suggested that you refer to these as you need them rather than trying to learn them all at once. There's a lot of information here and it can be a bit overwhelming.
