Welcome to Mir

Mir is a next generation display server targeted as a replacement for the X window server system to unlock next-generation user experiences for devices ranging from Linux desktop to mobile and IoT devices powered by Ubuntu.

Using Mir for server development

Install the headers and libraries for using libmiral in development:

sudo apt install libmiral-dev

A miral.pc file is provided for use with pkg-config or other tools. For example:

pkg-config --cflags miral

The server API is introduced here: Introducing the Miral API


Developer blogs, develompent announcements, questions, process documentation, and design discussions happen on the Mir section of the Ubuntu Discourse.

Mir developers and discussion can also be found on the #mir-server IRC channel on Freenode.
