Lyra should be put on Github

Given that Lyra is intended to be kept up to date and developed alongside the UE5 process, Lyra should also be put on Github.

This gives users a few things that are incredibly nice to have:

  1. We can fork Lyra to add our own features to it
  2. We can merge Epic’s upstream changes down into our own forks of Lyra, keeping us up to date easier with best practices and fixing bugs.
  3. We can submit pull requests against Lyra to improve it as well, improving the developer ecosystem
  4. we can possibly file bugs using the github tracker, if Epic wants to support that.

The advantages to putting Lyra on github are immense, and the entire development community would benefit from it.

I agree! That would work out to further enhance access to the code.

I agree. This would be really helpful!

Definitely!

Yes! I fixed already two little bugs with Lyra, and it would be much easier to share PR in a single place rather than spread them around in forum posts.

Agreed 100%, at least the cpp core.

Hey folks!

We’re in the process of looking into this. We will update everyone once we have some news :slight_smile:

Thanks, and happy developing! <3

Agreed.

It cant happen soon enough.

Great news! Let’s hope this happens soon :slight_smile:

good to hear! I hope it happens soon!

Awesome, thank you! I was just about to ask for this myself! :slightly_smiling_face:

Any update on this @SkyeEden ?

I’ve found and fixed several Lyra bugs so far, with several more pending.

At the moment there is no way for me to share these bug fixes with Epic or with other devs trying to use Lyra other than to b/vlog and hope people google the exact keywords that will lead them to the solution.

If Github won’t be used for some reason, then please do give us some other way to submit bug reports and bug fixes.

Please and thank you! :smile:
