Learn how to extend the Unity IDE with custom inspectors, editors, windows, and other tools for speeding up game development.
- [Voiceover] I'm Jesse Freeman. Welcome to Building Custom Tools to Extend the Unity IDE. Building your own custom tools to help you speed up your game development workflow can have a huge impact on your game, whether you're working on your own or in a team. In this course, I cover how to expose public fields to the Inspector, create custom classes that can be serialized in the Inspector, create custom editors and windows, save and load data from your project folder, and how to style your custom editor so that they're easier to use.
Whether you need to create a simple set of tools for your own game, or want to publish your code in the Unity Asset Store, this course will teach you the fundamentals of extending in the Unity IDE.
