The mudpy project aims to create a simple, generic, cross-platform, freely-redistributable MUD core engine which can be easily understood and extended. It is written in pure Python 3 and has only pure Python dependencies. All configuration and data are stored in consistently-formatted plain text (YAML 1.1) files for ease of administration. The core engine is unicode-clean internally and supports UTF-8 encoding for input and output of extended text characters.

The mudpy program and sample content are released under a free and open license, and any bug reports, criticisms, ideas, patches, content submissions or other offers of collaboration are wholeheartedly welcome.

what's missing

This project is still very much a work in progress, and is unlikely to be suitable for anyone who isn't willing to put in a bunch of work (help implementing features upstream is welcome, of course!). Here's a non-comprehensive list of missing things most folks are likely to expect in a MUD:
