Design and UI Guidelines


Are there any Design and User Interface Guidelines provided by Niantic Lightship ? Like how the text boxes looks in the AR world? As creating UI in 3D(AR) is different from standard 2D UI.

Hi Saurabh,

Thanks for your request! I can definitely appreciate how Design and UI Guidelines would be helpful in the new paradigm we find ourselves in.

At this moment we do not have comprehensive guidelines. It’s something our team has thought about and preferably would like to offer in the near future, but again no other information to furnish at the moment.

In the meantime, our tutorials do cover some fundamentals and give you a starting point and examples. For instance, text placement can be seen in this tutorial: and similarly we have guidelines around multiplayer here:

Thanks again for your request, hopefully the above information helps, and please let us know if there’s anything more we can do!

Thank You Umaiya.
Do we have a sample of a full ARDK app? Which starts from scanning the environment first. And then content starts poping up.

I also want to know, Are we allowed to use ARDK in production?

Hello Saurabh,

Thanks for writing in.

I would recommend going through Niantic Lightship AR Voyage: A Lightship Demo sample. That is an example of a full ARDK app that uses several ARDK features.
More details can be seen here:

For your question on using ARDK in production, we are happy to inform you that you can use ARDK in production. Please consider going through terms of service located at beforehand.
