Cross Platform XR Device Management

Updated: Jun 13, 2019

The Unity XR API is steadily evolving to make it easier to manage different XR devices to make your code more platform agnostic. However, the API is a mix of new and old code, and there aren't a lot of well documented best practices or examples.

I've created an example on GitHub demonstrating a method for utilizing Unity's XR API to handle device connections and controller input. It includes a Player class with controllers that are loosely coupled and mostly abstracted from the XR device currently connected, allowing for easier cross platform development.

This first version supports Unity 2019.1.0f2.
