The New and Improved Pico-8 API Documentation!

API Documentation

Alternatively, here's the link in text form: https://iiviigames.github.io/pico8-api

Why is it new?


I've been making a version of my own for some time now, just as I have updated the Sublime Text syntax for Pico-8. Since it's been 9 months since the original maintainer has updated it, I thought it was time to share my version. This work is based on the forked original API made by Neko250.

  • Clear version number and more intuitively located information
  • New and more specific tabs for content
  • Reformatted & rearranged the existing data
  • Heavily modified aesthetics, now more like PICO-8 itself
  • Many (not all) new functions have been added
  • Clear and concise annotations in code blocks
  • Pico-8 built-ins highlight,just like they would in the IDE
  • Keyboard shortcuts added
    • this section needs the most work
    • including 1 never found or documented previously, as far as I know

...and lots of love!

The future

I am writing a book, a bible, for Pico-8 at the moment. I needed a reference that was up to date just for this reason alone, as that book has its own (more in depth) reference for the entire API. That said, I will maintain this bad boy for the foreseeable future very, very quickly after Pico 8 updates.

When the day comes I can't or don't wish to, or someone more skilled than myself or Neko250 in the making of API cheatsheets comes along - I will pass it on to a new maintainer. Hell, anyone can fork this and do what they wish, as this project is licensed under creative commons.

Thank you,and please bookmark the API for future use!

Sincerely,

Vee
