VidiCore Development Toolkit

Software toolkit for media application development

The VidiCore Development Toolkit shortens your development time when building applications on top of the VidiCore media management back-end. It is the same set of tools and components we use in-house at Vidispine, available for everyone building on the VidiNet platform.


VDT - image - development

The quickest way to build on top of the VidiCore API is to use any of the provided Templates. The web starter template is based on Django/Python/Vue.js and used for web applications. Build your application by starting with the template, and then adding fully decoupled Javascript frontend components and Python backend components in your favourite Python web framework. Access the VidiCore API directly or through the Vidispine maintained Python and .NET SDKs.


Whether you are using VidiCore in the cloud or on-premise, you can use the provided Docker images to deploy a single node or clustered VidiCore system quickly. If you are deploying in the cloud, have a look at the Terraform example configurations.


The Ansible VidiCore library makes it easy to create a playbook that configures VidiCore the way you want it. Use the command line tools (vsctl) for inspecting and setting up your VidiCore system. The package also contains Datadog templates as a starting point for setting up system monitoring.
