Documentation is provided to support the use and development of Open MCT. It's recommended that before doing any development with Open MCT you take some time to familiarize yourself with the documentation below.
Open MCT provides functionality out of the box, but it's also a platform for building rich mission operations applications based on modern web technology. The platform is configured declaratively, and defines conventions for building on the provided capabilities by creating modular 'bundles' that extend the platform at a variety of extension points. The details of how to extend the platform are provided in the following documentation.
The Open MCT API provides the means to integrate Open MCT with your telemetry sources, and with time will include additional extension points for developers to add new categories of functionality to Open MCT.
Documentation is available for internal of Open MCT APIs. This is provided as a reference for developers who are maintaining code in core Open MCT modules. We strongly advise against developing any plugins using the internal API as it is deprecated and may be modified or removed without notice.
The API will continue to develop to support new ways of extending Open MCT to allow new methods of working with objects and telemetry. The API roadmap below gives an overview of upcoming API features, and the timescales in which we expect to deliver them.
