The Wikitude SDK - Augmented Reality for your own app

The Wikitude SDK is a software library and framework for mobile apps used to create augmented reality experiences. The SDK supports any kind of location based use case as well as use cases which require image recognition and tracking technology (vision based augmented reality).

How to code for the Wikitude SDK

The Wikitude SDK builds heavily on web technologies (HTML, JavaScript, CSS) to allow developers to write cross platform augmented reality experiences. These augmented reality experiences are called ARchitect worlds and are basically ordinary HTML pages that can utilize the ARchitect API to create objects in augmented reality.

Integrating the Wikitude SDK into your application is done by adding the platform specific view component called ARchitectView to your applications user interface. See the setup guide for how to setup a Xamarin project and load an ARchitect World.

Get started with writing augmented reality experiences by viewing through the examples included in the SDK. Each example is explained in detail in this documentation. Additional information about the ARchitect API can be found in the included API specification.

Free Trial and commercial license

By default the Wikitude SDK comes with no valid license key. Read this chapter on how to obtain a free trial key.

Then pass your license key into the SDK using the platform specific API.

The Wikitude Developer Portal

The Wikitude Developer Section should be your first stop when you have specific development related questions. The portal hosts a very active Developer Community Forum where Wikitude staff members are constantly assisting other developers with helpful tips and advice.

iOS sample doesn't work at all. First, it was throwing 100+ errors and when I updated my VS then it just keeps on debugging but never actually run. So, I skipped the sample part and started implementing the SDK on my own. But no luck, I just added a single line using Wikitude architect view in my viewcontroller :

WTArchitectView architectView = new WTArchitectView();

and it throws 2 new errors :

Error MT5209: Native linking error: framework not found FileProvider for architecture arm64 (MT5209).

Even after trying so much I'm still unable to use this component even once. Really disappointed!

Did not know how to develop cross-platform (Xamarin.Forms normally is used to be)

But both samples are very good!

Samples projects and documentation need a major improvement. Look official Xamarin samples documentation to see how good this can be.

Couldn’t make it work with any emulator. Seems like it is not suported.

The documentation is very poor. The version 5.2.0 doesn’t work with the sample.
