What's the CKAN?

The CKAN is a metadata repository and associated tools to allow you to find, install, and manage mods for Kerbal Space Program. It provides strong assurances that mods are installed in the way prescribed by their metadata files, for the correct version of Kerbal Space Program, alongside their dependencies, and without any conflicting mods.

CKAN is great for players and for authors:

  • players can find new content and install it with just a few clicks;
  • modders don't have to worry about misinstall problems or outdated versions;

The CKAN has been inspired by the solid and proven metadata formats from both the Debian project and the CPAN, each of which manages tens of thousands of packages.

What's the status of the CKAN?

The CKAN is currently under active development. We very much welcome contributions, discussions, and especially pull-requests.

The CKAN spec

At the core of the CKAN is the metadata specification, which comes with a corresponding JSON Schema that you can also find in the Schema Store

This repository includes a validator that you can use to validate your files.

CKAN for players

CKAN can download, install and update mods in just a few clicks. See the User guide to get started with CKAN.

CKAN for modders

While anyone can contribute metadata for your mod, we believe that you know your mod best. So while contributors will endeavor to be as accurate as possible, we would appreciate any efforts made by mod authors to ensure our metadata's accuracy. If the metadata we have is incorrect please open an issue and let us know.
